I am a graphic designer at ALCOVA Mortgage in Roanoke, VA. I work in the marketing department creating print and online content for all of our branches across multiple eastern states. I have won 2 gold and 1 silver Addy awards and 11 Virginia Press Association awards for excellent print and online design. I graduated from Radford University with a BFA in graphic design and from Virginia Western Community College with an AAS in communication design. I was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi honors societies. I worked at The Roanoke Times for 10 years previously. I also have management experience and work well in a team atmosphere. In my free time I'm an illustrator and I design t-shirts.
