My soon-to-end (we’re getting outsourced) five-plus years in-house at Pfizer headquarters were preceded by design staff positions at Vignelli Associates and various NYC corporate identity firms, such as Anspach Grossman Portugal (now Enterprise) and Siegel & Gale. At Siegel & Gale, while designing a brand book for Harley-Davidson, I started to think about going in-house (many of the Harley staff rode their “bikes” to work, Milwaukee winters permitting. It looked like fun.) Freelance assignments included using really large type in exhibition work at the Museum of Natural History, as well as work for American Express, Donovan and Greene, and Interbrand. I graduated with honors from the University of the Arts (formerly Philadelphia College of Art) with a BFA in Graphic Design.

After several years of social work in New Orleans as a child abuse counselor, I decided that advertising was more my speed emotionally and would also allow me to indulge my writing skills. I was fortunate enough to get hired as a copywriter at an in-house advertising department for a retail store, and then spent several years as a copywriter for 3 different ad agencies in the Tampa-St. Pete area. I returned to in-house marketing for an electric utility where I managed the ad agency and a small in-house staff. After 9/11, my social work leanings took me to the Red Cross as their media spokesperson for a couple of years, when I was recruited to AAA to head up their in-house creative department. I’m on the board and a past president of the Tampa Bay Advertising Federation. I have a degree from the University of North Carolina, dropped out of work for 2 years to go sailing with my husband, and still live on the water and enjoy the boating and beachy life.
