About Sarah

I'm a graphic designer with 7+ years of professional experience and love helping people help themselves by finding their way around Adobe and Apple products. I am currently a Subject Matter Expert in Design with the Peace Corps, a freelance designer, and an enthusiast for digital creativity. My husband and I made an exodus from the nation's capital to the Lakes Region last spring with big hopes of finding the substance of life, and simultaneously leaving those full-time careers behind. Now we raise chickens, burn wood on the stove, and are finding new ways to use our skills to help others.

In Washington, D.C. I received a BFA in Graphic Design from the Corcoran College of Art & Design, attempted to pay off those student loans at the tech start-up LivingSocial, and was offered a federal position as a Graphic Designer with the Peace Corps HQ, freelancing all the while. I've led numerous tutorials in professional settings on tips & tricks in Adobe Creative Suite, and would love to help you achieve your Mac goals, too!

Illustrator & InDesign: With extensive experience in print and digital design, I know the in's & out's of the software and can walk you through simply and effectively. Whether you need to know the basics, or are looking to expand your knowledge, I would love to help.

General Computer: Need help getting acquainted with your Mac computer or products? From software to setting up your computer for your best workflow, I'm a self-dubbed brand ambassador and would love to walk you through!

Photoshop: I've managed a small team of Photographers, Photo-editors, and freelance Photographers and led tutorials on technique and process. Anything from photo sourcing, photo-retouching, effects, efficiency short-cuts, to file management - I can help and make it fun!

Graphic Design: I love sharing my passion for design and helping people articulate and create their visions. Want to make your own business cards, brochures, publications, advertisements, web banners, website, social media marketing? Need help with the production aspects- like preparing files for print or web? From a rough brainstorm to the finished product, I can help with all steps of your creative process.

Whatever your creative goals, I would love to help you achieve them by identifying what the best topics for tutoring would be, walking you through, and having fun in the process! Please feel free to contact me to learn more and to schedule lessons. Let's start creating!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

I am a federally contracted Subject Matter Expert in Graphic Design on a Publications Team at the Peace Corps HQ with extensive experience in publication and layout design. I have created booklets, brochures, single page documents, long-format documents such as Annual Reports, and even published books. I would consider InDesign the Adobe Creative Suite program that I am the most comfortable with, knowing not only how to create layouts and documents, but how to explain my process to peers and students as well.

Adobe Photoshop

I have professional experience as a Senior Photo editor, leading Photoshop tutorials for a team at a company for web output. Extensive experience in branding, marketing, and design for print and web.

General Computer

I am an expert in Adobe Creative Suite and proficient in Microsoft Office suite as well as basic HTML, CSS, ConstantContact, Prezi, and social media platforms. Also proficient with Apple products, print production, and presentations.

Graphic Design

I am a federally contracted Subject Matter Expert in Graphic Design at the Peace Corps HQ with extensive freelance experience ranging from federal and private sector, ivy league schools, small businesses, and individual clients. I attended the Corcoran College of Art & Design (2009) where I received a BFA in Graphic Design, and also have a professional certification from the Art Institute of Chicago in Digital Design. I have taken CSS & HTML classes with General Assembly, and have 7+ years of professional experience in the industry. I have managed teams and led tutorials on software and technique, but always love sharing my passion and helping others find theirs. Thanks for the opportunity!
