Graphic Designer | Penn Medicine
I started my professional career at Penn Medicine a few months after graduating from Temple in the summer of 2017. Even as an entry-level designer, I was thrown right into the mix. Penn Medicine has more service lines than I could comprehend at the time, all with their own unique visual identity that is still being refined today. Within each service line, we were creating promotional products, patient information, physician-facing information, annual reports, social media graphics, advertisements, environmental graphics, and so on. I stayed with Penn for about a year and a half before moving to the Midwest for a year to pursue experience in a studio setting. While I was away, I stayed in touch with Penn as a freelancer and even switched to working as a full-time contractor before moving back to the area. I’ve been back with Penn as a full-time employee for about a year now, coming up on my 3-year anniversary, and I couldn’t be happier with the growth we made as a creative team. I specialize in several different service lines, the main one being Women’s Health, which we are currently rebranding. It’s been an extensive yet rewarding process so far but I cannot wait to see where it goes!
Senior Brand Designer | Traction
I was with Traction for about 8 months from the fall of 2018 to the summer of 2019. Here I worked as a brand designer, specializing in developing brand identities, websites, and different client collateral.
Graphic Design Intern | Unique Industries
Unique Industries was my first “real employer”, my first “real job”, with my first “real cubicle” and workload. I interned throughout my entire college career at Unique and learned invaluable lessons throughout my time there. I participated in weekly meetings, adjusted to the 9-5 life, had a steady design-driven workload, and learned how to interact with clients – even big ones like Universal, Nickelodeon, and Disney! I had the opportunity to bounce around throughout their art department, gaining experience in Advertising, Print Production, Product Production, Product Licensing and Packaging Design. Unique Industries allowed me to take the skills I was learning in school and consistently apply it over time in a real-world setting.
Graphic Design Intern | Anthropologie | Fall 2016
I worked at Anthropologie in the fall semester of my senior year at Tyler. My boss, a Tyler grad, was incredibly talented and continues to be someone I look up to in the field. Her eye for design and overall understanding of how to apply brand visuals helped mold me into the designer I am today. I also had the privilege of working at their headquarters, located in Philadelphia, where I continued to grow not just as a designer but as an artist. I worked on very conceptual pieces for event promotions and in-store signage that taught me to design outside of my comfort zone.
Marketing Design Intern | Philadelphia Flyers | Summer 2016
My time at the Philadelphia Flyers was a time I’ll always cherish, not just because of the incredible team I worked with but the fact that they provided me with countless opportunities to grow. I wasn’t treated as an in-house designer but as a project manager, someone who thought about marketing strategy – not just design. I worked on analyzing data and then designing that data into infographics. I also had the added benefit of designing all of the team banners that hang in the Wells Fargo Center rafters today.
