A graphic designer motivated to work on all projects collaboratively with the design team from conception through to final production.
I am currently working as a paraprofessional at Marietta High School assisting Special Education students in the Career Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) department. The classes I work with are Marketing, Web Design, Graphic Design, and Digital Technology. As a second job, I am a part time assistance manager at Advance Auto Parts Store. I am also a freelance Graphic Designer with 27+ years’ experience. I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications in more detail.
