Career bio...

I have two degrees from The Art Institute of Dallas: one in Fashion Design and the other in Graphic Design. I graduated from Graphic Design in 2008, during The Great Recession, and out of my graduating class, two other students & I found jobs. I worked under Annie Roche, as an Invitation Designer in Dallas, Texas. After my time as an invitation designer, I went on to work as the Office Manager for the Integrated Design Group in Dallas. While working there, I knew it was not my passion, so I decided to fight to get back to what I loved.


In 2012 I began working as a freelance designer for JCPenney Headquarters. In a year and a half, I worked my way from Freelance Production Artist on print catalogs to being hired as an Associate Art Director on I designed app interfaces, desktop/tablet/mobile homepages & email marketing. After three years at JCPenney, and twelve years total in Dallas, I decided that I wanted to go back to my roots in Arkansas. In August 2015, I moved to Bentonville Arkansas and began working with Ivie and Associates. At Ivie, I became a design consultant for Walmart Headquarters in their Marketing department. There I pitched projects, brought campaigns to life & provided marketing research. I designed customer-facing social media posts, SnapChat GEO Filters, digital banner ads, marketing videos, animations & graphics. In January 2018 I moved to Walmart's Corporate Affairs department as a Digital Specialist & UX UI Designer working on In December 2018 we started the process of redesigning/recreating over 1,000 pages for the WalmartOne & The Wire merger. 

WalmartOne & The Wire are their associate-facing sites. To put it in perspective this combined site is the first of its kind and is larger than all of the U.S. Military sites combine.
