Quick Facts Alma Mater: University of Virginia Virginia Commonwealth University Parsons School of Design Degree(s): Bachelor of Arts – English Master of Fine Arts – Poetry A.A.S. – Graphic Design Dog Mom To: Issa Human Mom To: Birdie There are a number of ad agencies in Birmingham. Why do you work here? I love working here because of the people. After freelancing for many years the amount of freedom, encouragement, fun, and collaboration at Modern Brand are a perfect mix for my independent spirit. Every day is different and engaging. What’s your spirit animal? Brad says I’m a raccoon. Although not nocturnal, I do love a nice snack and tend to leave behind a crumb trail. In my head I’m Angela Lansbury in Murder, She Wrote. Observant, curious, and always ready for the next case. What is your favorite beverage? Why? Coca-Cola classic from a can poured over ice into a tall, skinny glass. Nothing better. Blame my mom for this one – she started me on it in the womb despite doctor’s orders. What’s your favorite part about working at Modern Brand? The clients. I love working with clients that are actively engaged with helping others and making Birmingham a better place. It’s wonderful to wake up every day knowing your work is for good. What’s been your favorite project? Why? Magic City Sunday Supper for the Community Food Bank of Alabama. This project combined my love for typography and letterpress and invitation suites into a tidy package that also helped raise money for the Food Bank. Hands down my favorite.
