I discovered my love for graphic design when I took a graphic design and printing class in high school. Upon graduation I went to Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
While in high school and college I worked for the Nashua, NH School district producing print materials for 13 elementary schools, 3 junior high schools, the high school and the administrative unit. I also spent one summer teaching graphic design to English as a Second Language students through a State run program.
While I was in college my family moved to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, which is how I discovered Plymouth. I briefly worked for Kwik Print and D&B Advertising in Plymouth and then became the first designer at True Colors Print and Design where I worked for 20 years.
I became involved in the community and joined the boards of several local nonprofits where I used my skills to help with promotions of
regular programming andfundraising events. These events included Plymouth Area Community Closet's Town Wide Yard Sale, Plymouth Area Democrats' Keep the Heat On, and the Town of Plymouth's 250th Celebration as well as promotions for the Plymouth Historical Society.
