I graduated on May 1st 2015 from the University of South Carolina Beaufort as summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA in my B.S. degree of Business Administration with a Marketing concentration, along with a Studio Art minor that has a Graphic Design focus. In addition, I have a certificate in Front End Development from Midlands Tech in Columbia, S.C.
Since graduating from the University of South Carolina Beaufort, I have started my own contracting business, offering services such as designing and maintaining websites in WordPress, graphic design services (such as online ads, social media graphics, posters, logos, etc.), and social media management. Through this experience, I have expanded my creative and strategic skills, along with refining my client management and relationship skills. In addition, I have learned and become an expert in many website design practices such as customizing graphics in Photoshop and Illustrator, customizing themes and plugins with CSS, adjusting page layouts with HTML, trouble shooting code, designing for responsiveness, setting up and installing Google Analytics, Search Engine Optimization, and more.
Along with my contracting work, I have been working for 3 years at a boutique marketing firm in Beaufort, S.C. called PickleJuice Productions as their Website Designer, Graphic Designer, Social Media Marketing Manager, and Website Content Manager. In addition, I acquired a website design contract at a marketing firm in Bluffton, SC called Group 46, where I not only design websites but also oversaw the marketing strategy and communication for several clients at Group 46.
