Associate Director of Communications
What I Do
I create and design promotional and marketing materials for the College. This is includes everything from signage, posters, department brochures to web graphics and the College viewbook. I work closely with all departments providing creative solutions and assistance with their print materials and promoting their events.
My Professional Experience
I graduated from Brighton Art College and Bournemouth Art College in the south of England, where I worked in an advertising agency for a year before coming to the United States. I have over 25 years advertising and design experience in both the corporate and agency environment, and also ran my own design business for five years before joining VWC. My work has won many Addy awards including a Gold and Best of Show whilst employed as an art director for an advertising and PR firm in Louisiana.
Outside of VWC
I am an avid animal lover and volunteer my time with Golden Retriever Rescue and Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center. I enjoy travelling and have been fortunate enough to travel many countries in Europe as well as Turkey and Iran. I also enjoy reading historical novels and touring historic sites.
