I hold a Bachelor of Interior Design from the University of Oklahoma College of Architecture. After graduation I started working for myself as a freelance designer.
After several years of contract and freelance work in drafting and graphic design, I found my way back to the University of Oklahoma by way of the College of Liberal Studies, a college specializing in helping non-traditional students obtain or finish their degrees. Later I accepted a position with the College of Architecture as the Communications and Event Coordinator, managing all college marketing, communication and events.
After moving out of Norman, I decided it was time for a change and left my position at the College of Architecture to again pursue freelance design. This allowed me the flexibility to work extensively to restore our historic home. I left self employment when I was offered a position with the Oklahoma Bar Association working again in communications.
