I've been designing ever since I can remember. I learned how to use a computer at age 4 (this was before the Internet, when the biggest form of entertainment was Microsoft Paint) and started using it as I got older to design lists and documents (which always had pictures of dolphins on them thank you very much). In middle school, when making your own Piczo site became a thing, I got a little too excited and demanded to make everyone's site for them. At age 11, I discovered Photoshop and became obsessed with making Hilary Duff graphics, then posting them on my now big-girl site that I started to add code to.
In short, I loved this graphic design stuff. But I decided not to pursue graphic design because I didn't want to "sit at the computer all day". Joke's on me now that every other job involves sitting at the computer all day.
Instead, I went through school and college confused and not really knowing what to do with my life. It wasn't until I found myself starting a food education business with my husband and caring a lot more about what the website looked like more than the actual food that I thought "I should probably do something about this." And so, it wasn't until I was 27 that I gave into that yearning to make beautiful things and started my own design business. Now, I get to do what I love most and use it to help women run successful businesses that they love.
