I received a B.A. in creative writing from the University of Pittsburgh and a masters in leadership from Liberty Universty. After working in various nonprofit jobs where I was able to use my creative design skills, I knew I needed to pursue that passion, and am currently finishing an M.A. in integrated marketing communications from the University of West Alabama. I spent most of my life in southwestern Pennsylvania and I currently live in eastern Ohio with my husband, daughter, and our two cats.
