Hometown: Grand Island, NY
What is your background in?
At Buffalo State, I studied Communication Design. At Savannah College of Art & Design, I completed my Graphic Design MFA and began practicing Design Management in a highly collaborative environment.
What do you work on primarily?
My role at Parkway continues to grow and evolve. These days I focus primarily on project management which allows me to help move along projects in any way that I’m needed. I also handle social media management and keep the internal gears grinding at Parkway.
What do you wish your clients knew?
How much we care about them! Seriously, none of us really “leave” at 5 o’clock. We are constantly on the lookout for new ideas and creative outlets to help our clients build their business. I also wish they knew how much we can do. The Parkway team is so talented and my favorite projects are ones that require the whole team’s creative input.
Why do you love coming to work?
Every day is different which keeps me sharp. I love working with our team and watching our business grow over the last 3.5 years has been an exciting journey. I also love that our client list is primarily local and that we continue to play a part in Buffalo’s resurgence.
Can you share a professional or personal goal?
I would love to have a part in creating a children’s book.
What would you be if you weren’t a project manager?
Other directions I considered were art education and nutrition.
