Since I was a child, I have always been intrigued by the power of design to connect individuals with the information that they need and want. I would spend hours as a child laying out menus in Microsoft Publisher, for the restaurant my best friend and I “ran” out of her living room, and putting together advertisements for the weekend yard sale.
That passion led me to a degree in art and corporate communications and an advanced degree in design and branding strategy. My dissertation focused on the merging of design, brand, and business consulting strategies to drive holistic change within organizations. I enjoy working at the intersection of research, design, and strategy: helping companies find their voice and tell their story. Launching Princeton University’s employer brand and careers website—the first in higher education—was a momentous achievement.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog, Starbuck, and I make time for family and friends and traveling the world whenever I can.
