I graduated from Montana Tech of the University of Montana in 2010, with a Bachelor's degree in Professional and Technical Communication. My senior project was a magazine called ModernMrs. As part of this project, I brainstormed concept ideas, wrote content, photographed the cover model and interior photos, and designed brand identity. The layout for the magazine was created in Adobe InDesign and the project was published by Mag Cloud.

During my time at Montana Tech, I also worked with the student newspaper The Technocrat to sell and design newspaper advertisements.

During college I also redesigned the Policies and Procedures manual for Holiday Inn Express, where I was employed for four years as a Guest Service Representative.
