“I build brand equity.”
At age 12, I received a special gift from my uncle, Photoshop 5.5 Limited Edition. I used the software to create art, then taught myself HTML to showcase my artwork online. Shortly thereafter, friends and family began to ask me to design flyers, logos, brochures, signs, and websites. As I matriculated through school I utilized these skills to promote school events and student clubs. After graduating from Spelman College I continued to lend a design hand to various small businesses and churches. In 2015, I started freelancing as a Digital Media Specialist and discovered that clients needed help beyond content creation. I learned more about digital marketing in order to better serve them.
In July 2017 I started working as a Digital Marketing Specialist at The Oaks Academy through the AmeriCorp – VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) program. VISTA members serve for one year at a not for profit organization which helps eradicate poverty. During that year of service, I refined my design skills, took courses on digital marketing, and was introduced to design thinking.
At present, I serve as a marketing and communications coordinator at IU School of Medicine, where my passion for marketing, design, and strategy continues to grow. Checkout my portfolio of work below.
