I am currently serving as a Visual Information Specialist with the Department of Veterans Affairs. I am a 7 year Army Veteran where I served primarily in communications. I have obtained a Masters degree in Media Design, which covers marketing and branding, as well as a Bachelors degree in Multimedia Design & Development, which covers graphic design and web development.

In my current position as a Visual Information Specialist, I am responsible for preparing publications to meet compliance regulations, as well as adhering to established graphic identity standards. I am highly involved in the creation of materials for the hospital, both internally and externally, including booklets, brochures, posters, business cards, television graphics, and SharePoint intranet development.

I have over 15 years of experience in digital development, including graphic design, website design, photography, and video editing. I am experienced with Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and InDesign. I take pride in having an extreme attention to detail, managing timelines, multi-tasking across multiple projects, and collaborating with my team in a professional creative environment.

I look forward to speaking with you and discussing my qualifications in more detail.
