As an experienced design leader, I’ve worked in every aspect of creative departments, from doing production work to leading projects. I’ve managed a six-figure budget for advertising, made hundreds of presentations to owners and managers, kept track of multiple overlapping deadlines, and grown business in key areas by bringing new ideas and new efficiency.
I can work with a team to take a project from the beginning stages all the way through to launch. I have a natural aptitude to manage projects, even in situations where I have no prior experience. I have a natural eye for maintaining consistency in flow and design throughout a project, as well as considering how that projects fits into the overall goals of the company and using them to inform the design process on which I’m working.
I have proven experience in mentoring teams around me. When I am leading a team or working within one, I look for areas where I can be of service. This has looked like many things in my career, including seeing where things are running smoothly and where they’re not and what additional coordination is needed, as well as looking for unused skills around me and encouraging growth in my team members through training and mentorship.
