I have been using computers for almost 12 years and I have gained an excellent knowledge in various areas of design, computers and the internet. I am very passionate about the industry I am involved with and am proud to say that I chose Graphic Design as as career choice. So I took the venture into various colleges (The Art Institute of Dallas, Atlanta, and Houston. Then on to Tyler Junior College, Chatt State, Tyler Junior College again, and finally North Lake College in Irving, Texas. Here is where I learned to tap into my creative fullbrings, unleashing my color crazy noodle on the world. I can honestly say that if it weren't for the North Lake staff, I wouldn't had made it this far in design. Those two alone challenged me arrogant imagination. That's when I realized I knew nothing about the real world of design. A couple of my major strengths are my attention to detail and adaptability. This adaptability can also be seen in my design work where I am able handle any task I'm given, design, web, and print. I hope you dig the work. Drop me a line if you have any comments or to just hire me.

I am an environmental scientist by training with strong skills and expertise in the life and physical sciences. I have a MSc and a PhD focused on air pollution—including its quantification/measurement, dispersion and effects. My time in academia has led me to be very proficient in grant and report writing. I have also written articles for print news and on-line outlets. I have over three years of experience editing academic papers for publication and a passion for the English language. I also enjoy creative writing which includes volumes of poetry and a novel I am working on. I am also a nature photographer, and love to capture the intricacies of the natural world—what drew me to the natural sciences. I am also skilled in hand and digital illustration or image development and have a house full of my own paintings. When I ran a food company I developed my own ads that were nominated for awards. My research and professional interests lie at the interface between science, policy and society. Let me help your organization gain social license, express technical information to non-technical audiences, become environmentally sustainable, produce articles and copy, share your story, and so much more!

At 28 years old, I was a married woman with three children living in a trailer park and working as a bartender. I made the decision to go back to school. I applied and was accepted at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, a Penn State affiliate. My first semester I scraped by with a 2.4 GPA. Two years later, I graduated with an Associates of Applied Science in Legal Assistant Studies and an overall GPA of 3.7. My first job was in a law office but I quickly learned that it was not a good fit for me. As it turned out, the amateur counseling skills I’d gained as a bartender coupled with the technical knowledge I acquired in school helped me levitate to a rewarding career in social services. Both positions that followed (detailed below), were start-ups, I was the first person to serve in either of these capacities. I was also a “one man band” so it was up to me to develop protocols and procedures for everything from effective policies to proper documentation. It was challenging but I enjoyed it and I truly loved my job. In 2007, I was named Employee of the Year. Unfortunately, it was a job that relied on grant money and in an effort to balance the state budget, all funding for my position was eliminated in 2012. Very abruptly, after almost 12 years, I was laid off. At first, I felt like this big hunk of my life had been wasted and now meant nothing. In time, I realized that was not true. I have always been an avid reader and a skilled writer. I became aware that I had really learned and grown a lot in the past two decades (after nearly 20 years of crime and crisis, Law and Order: SVU has nothing on me!) I have had the opportunity to observe the human condition from a very unique and intimate perspective. I possess the ability to convey what I know in clear and concise written form. I have an above average vocabulary and always pay close attention to spelling, grammar and punctuation. I believe my attitude, ability and life experience will allow me to succeed as a writer. I look forward to opportunities and challenges that I may face.
