Hi!
Communication is essential in every facet of life, from business to personal relationships, and even small interactions at the cash register. I am passionate about developing effective communication and continuing the art of our English language, beyond abbreviated text acronyms.

My background is in journalism and communication. I studied at Iowa State before entering the corporate world with a job in marketing. My work experience includes writing, publishing, editing, layout and design, photography, and more. I recently left my full-time position to stay home with my baby; however, I enjoy the work and wish to continue working with individuals like you.

During our first meeting, I would like to take time to assess your needs and set goals for your success. As much as possible, I would like to incorporate your hobbies and interests into our work because I want you to succeed both in the classroom and outside it and I believe pursuing your passion is one step toward that.

Because I do have a family to consider and need to coordinate childcare, I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If something requires you to cancel, I will try to be flexible in rescheduling with you.

Depending on your study habits and technological needs, I am willing to meet in libraries or travel to your home to meet with you.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Adobe InDesign

I have been using Adobe InDesign for layout design for 6 years. I used it daily during my professional career to create flyers, mailings, invitations, newsletters, etc. This was my go-to design program.

Cooking

I have been cooking since I was 8 years old and received and EZ-Bake oven as a Christmas gift. Thankfully, my skills have progressed since then and I can say I am truly passionate about food and cooking. My experience includes menu planning, hosting and preparing food for dinner parties, and even preparing food for receptions with 300 guests. By starting with the basics and incorporating recipes that fit your lifestyle, I can help you master skills in the kitchen and impress your family and friends.
