Work Experience

Owner | Thompson Medical Illustration and Feuer Illustration | 2008 – Present
I began my medical illustration business in 2008 after moving to Pennsylvania. In the eventful years since, I have built a customer base I am very proud of, including product and pharmaceutical manufacturers, publishers, entrepreneurs, researchers, health care practitioners, inventors, design agencies and more.
The work has proven to be exciting, with each project bringing fresh learning experiences and new collaborative relationships. I have had opportunities to assist innovative device design, create retail packaging and bring my clients’ expertise to their audiences in many engaging ways.
My career path has also allowed me to teach a course on digital illustration techniques at Douglas Education Center, mentor students and interns, tutor English and science for Pittsburgh Public School students, and volunteer for the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators as board secretary from 2014 through 2016.
Currently I am Exhibition Chair for Art of Facts | Uncovering Pittsburgh StoriesPSI’s twentieth anniversary exhibition at the Senator John Heinz History Center.
As this year moves along into the next, I look forward to more exciting projects and opportunities.
Medical Illustrator | The Ohio State University Medical Center | 2005 – 2008
As a staff medical illustrator on campus, I worked directly with physicians, students and researchers. Some of my favorite projects included creating over 100 illustrations for a successful multimedia faculty and student development program and presenting the corresponding poster, “It’s Not Always About Cutting Edge Technology: Choosing the Right Blend of Media to Engage the Learner”, at the Association of American Medical Colleges Group on Information Resources Spring Meeting in San Francisco, CA, 2008. I also facilitated OSU faculty and staff participation in professional conferences by instructing popular “Creating Scientific Posters in Microsoft PowerPoint” workshops in the Prior Health Sciences Library and at University Hospital East.
