ProfesSional Profile

My college experience was formative. As a focused, engaged student, I embraced the opportunity to soak in every lesson learned, every chapter read. Honored with the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Scholarship, the first and only student from Howard Community College chosen for the award, I transferred on to successfully complete a Bachelor’s Degrees, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
To this point, my work history has been separated into two distinct areas: web design and management. Having spent eight years in web design and online marketing, with a solid foundation of technical skills, team leadership and project management, I am seeking the opportunity to combine the breadth of my education and experience in continued professional growth.
In addition to the work history outlined in my resume, I have led several large-scale projects as an independent contractor, providing a massive overhaul of various company websites. Working collaboratively with my clients as well as video editors, photographers, copywriters and programmers, I gained valuable experience in leading a team through complex web design projects to deliver a high quality, seamless user experience on time and within budget.
I look forward to meeting with you to further explore our potential partnership.
