I love my job. Maybe it’s because I have a pretty diverse background, and I am in a place where I can thrive. I started out my career as a sports reporter for the University of Alabama, where I graduated. I’ve always had a pretty good command of grammar and punctuation, so when a spot on the copy desk at the Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News became available, I took it. Working on a copy desk also involved page design and layout of various sections of the newspaper, so my love for art was rekindled in some respects.
I really began to thrive in various areas of print design, which prompted me to go back to school for “official” graphic design training. And now? I’m blessed to use my skills in a variety of ways where I work—Officers’ Christian Fellowship. At OCF, my title is senior designer, but as is typical at a nonprofit, I wear many hats—from writing, editing, and graphic design to communications strategy, social media, and web/digital design. I love being in a place where I get to do so many diverse things.
During my professional career, I’ve won numerous design awards—something I attribute to my strong work ethic, attention to detail, creative passion, and analytical mind. I have a constant desire to grow, learn, and get better at everything I do.
