The background.

Let me begin by telling you a little about myself.  I grew up in a small town in southwest Missouri.  In 1995, I began working at a local print shop which is what triggered my interest in printing and graphic design.  I enrolled in the Arts program at a nearby university and later graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in graphic communications.  While attending college, I was given the opportunity to participate in an internship with the marketing department of a Fortune 500 company.  The experience was very rewarding and a great way to gain hands-on experience.  Over the next several years, I enhanced my skills and knowledge working for print shops, advertising agencies, and a local newspaper.  Around 2004, I began working for an Oklahoma casino designing billboards, advertisements for special promotions and concerts, newsletters, and various mailings.  I had my foot in the door of the gaming industry and knew that was going to be my niche.  My greatest accomplishment came while working for a different casino in Oklahoma.  It was newly established and strategizing ways to be more financially efficient.  Management decided one way to cut costs and time was to sever ties with the large, over-priced agency they were using and bring the work in-house.  With that being said, I successfully implemented the graphics department saving the casino several thousand dollars ; not to mention the convenience of having their designer on hand at all times.  The department is still being utilized today.  About 3-4 years ago, I decided to take my career to the next level.  I left my job at the casino and began working from home, which is what I am doing now. I must say, it’s been one of the best decisions I have made.  The flexibility and being able to work one on one with my clients is one of the most rewarding aspects of having a home office.  My ultimate goal by working from home is to utilize my creativity, be available anytime my clients need assistance, and provide exceptional work that exceeds expectations.
