I have an excellent educational background where I excelled at research, development, and design. I am a three-time graduate of WVU with a bachelor’s degree of science in Dental Hygiene (2000), and Fashion Design & Merchandising (2013), as well as a master’s degree of science in Integrated Marketing Communications (2016). Along with my education at WVU, I have also studied abroad in London, England, at AIU London (2012).

Creative Scholarship:
ACRL 2017

In March 2017, characters I designed for the WVU Libraries were on display and discussed at the Association of College & Research Libraries Annual Conference. "Love in the Time of Pokemon Go" was presented, sharing the results of student education gained through the playing of online games.
