Who is that Quacked Duck?
I have been a graphic designer since 2007 and a photographer, artist, and writer as far back as I can remember. My skills lie in print design, web design, corporate branding, social media, writing, photography, and motion graphics. Beyond my freelancing, I also run a small retail shop selling whimsical items, from t-shirts to mugs to custom caricatures. I also enjoy taking portraits, pet photography, and fine art photography.
In my freelance work, I have worked with non-profits, real estate agents & brokers, global companies, local small businesses, and book authors. Projects have included headshot photography, real estate photography, websites, social media management, graphic design, and motion graphics. Some of my freelance clients have included the commercial real estate firm, Lincoln Property Company, the Central Florida Fair, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Prior to embarking on my own, I was the senior graphic designer for the Nashville Multifamily Team at commercial real estate firm Newmark, with responsibilities that included creating custom print and video marketing materials for the sale of multifamily apartment properties and writing press releases for high-end deals.
Before joining Newmark, I was a graphic designer for Cushman & Wakefield’s Florida Marketing Team. While there, I created custom marketing and promotional materials for the Central and North Florida markets and specialized in digital marketing via websites and videos. Beyond my design work, I also served as the Chapter Philanthropy Chair for the Women’s Integrated Network and the Chapter Lead of the Future Leaders groups for the Central Florida office.
Other experience includes overseeing the public face of an online marketing company as the graphic designer and social media manager and creating e-learning modules for a computer-based training company.
During my career, I have won multiple awards for graphic design and photography.
