EDUCATION

VCU Brandcenter

Master of Science, Mass Communications: Creative Technology / Richmond, VA / May 2010

Not even motherhood could prepare me for the two most intense, sleep deprived, but equally amazing years of my advertising career. And I couldn’t imagine life without either experience.

Virginia Tech

Bachelor of Arts, Art: Graphic Design / Blacksburg, VA / May 2004

After two grueling years as an Architecture major, I realized the all-black wardrobe and more predictable career path weren't for me. However, the all-nighters were great prep for a career in advertising. I also learned that maroon and orange are, in fact, complimentary colors.
