I grew up in Southern California where I learned how to apply sunscreen constantly, developed a deep appreciation for mexican food, and practiced what to do in case of an earthquake. I participated in that time-honored tradition of fleeing your home town after high school and made my way to Portland, Oregon.
After arriving in the great nation of Cascadia, I spent a few years at Lewis & Clark College, where I got my degree in Biology. I bought proper rain gear, developed a taste for microbrews, and learned how to enjoy camping.
Now, I spend half of my week at the Oregon Zoo, where I work in youth programs. My job duties include affixing googly eyes to things, managing and analyzing program data, creating fun and interesting presentations, and shopping for fake scat (no, really).
The other half of my week belongs to consulting. Often this means websites or other computer-centric work, but I'm open to all sorts of fun projects. Birding trips? I know all the best spots. Wine parties? I can help you plan one that will go down in history. Copy writing and editing? I'm your girl (even if you need limericks [and especially if you need a haiku]).
I create attractive, clean Wordpress sites - fully custom or from templates. I also update and manage existing websites.
Every site I make is responsive, so they work flawlessly on all screen sizes. I use tools like SASS and Bourbon + Neat to create responsive sites quickly and efficiently.
I can take your stack of papers or headache-inducing excel file and create useful, compelling graphs that answer key business questions.
Professional training documents, educational activities, the perfect "About Me" page for your website, or a nice letter to mom. I'll even throw in the Oxford commas.
Don't let a boring PowerPoint sabotage your next important talk. I make clean, readable powerpoints that engage your audience, including fully custom themes.
