Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I was in college as a journalism major and received a job offer as an editorial assistant in a magazine. While there, I spent a lot of time in the art department and as a natural progression I became fascinated with print production. Having a project management mindset, I loved the idea of taking creative projects from concept to delivery of a tangible product. Combining process and detail together, I am able to merge the two to develop better processes in organizations.
