About the designer…

Freelance design work was going to be temporary after I had my first child and took a break as Director of Publications from a small New England college. While my oldest was really young I worked in a play room doing design work for a few small businesses. Working remotely was so new at the time, that the Boston Herald even included me in a story about working from home.

Luckily, I met the owner of a local public relations firm at a Chamber of Commerce event (thanks, Dave K.!) who trusted me and funneled work my way. I ended up becoming one of 3 freelance designers for his firm – before working remotely became the norm. Because my design background was in higher ed, and the firm had several higher ed clients, I ended up designing view books, annual reports and other print materials for several universities. I had many design opportunities, and gained a great mentor as well.

So – we renovated a garage bay into an office/studio and Harvest Design was launched.

My clients are awesome people. I’ve had the pleasure of working for some of them for over 10 years. They are from the diverse fields of  manufacturing, nonprofits, small businesses and education.

In my past life, I was Director of Publications at Mount Wachusett Community College, Designer and Publicist for the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford (awesome gig!) and Graphic Designer for Chevalier Associates advertising agency. I graduated with a BFA from the Visual Design program at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.

When I’m not working, I’m usually doing something outside, traveling, watching Penn State football, drinking craft beers, walking or reading.

I love working with new customers and learning about their businesses. How can I help provide solutions to your graphic design needs?
