I received my BFA in Medical Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2004.

Since then I have made it a point to interact with other creative professionals on a regular basis to find inspiration, exchange ideas and learn better business techniques.

I am a professional member of the Association of Medical Illustrators and a professional member of the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators, serving as board secretary from 2014 through 2016.

I have attended several business-related seminars and workshops:

  • SCORE’s Small Business Basics Workshop, Pittsburgh, PA
  • Association of Research Libraries Project Management Institute, Columbus, OH
  • The Ohio State University John Glen School of Public Affairs, Management Advancement for the Public Service
  • The Secrets to Powerful Presentations, Columbus, OH
  • Negotiating with Power and Confidence, Columbus, OH
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback Effectively, Columbus, OH
