ABOUT
ME
Hi, I'm Jen!

I’m a highly collaborative graphic designer, art director, multitasker extraordinaire, and pretty badass weekend warrior mountain biker.

I’m creative and detail-oriented — a passionate leader and team player with a proven track record for translating complex ideas into slick, successful solutions. I’ve managed and motivated interdisciplinary teams, both as the official in-house go-to gal and agency powerhouse. I’ve helped build and manage brands, worn every hat possible, and jumped through many hoops to find the solution for every client.

I am currently working as the Lead Senior Experiential Graphic Designer at The Franklin Institute.

My key areas of experience include Art Direction and Senior-Level Design. I have expertise in print and digital formats for experiential and environmental design, branding, brand management, project and team management, and design direction. I have also been known to put together a mean excel spreadsheet every once in awhile, and I can ride a bike pretty well. If I’m not sure how to do something, I’ll find a way to make it happen.

It sounds cheesy, but I love what I do everyday and love working with clients who are as passionate about their business as I am about design. I design because I love doing it. I thrive on building lasting relationships while producing quality work for aspiring, open-minded clients who understand and value the creative journey and process.
