I have a multi-disciplinary experience in both my education and professional roles.
I’ve had a passion for creating since my early childhood, spending hours on end drawing and visualizing new places and things. At the age of 12, that passion manifested itself in another way when I started building websites and computer games for the first time.
At that age, building websites and games was not only an outlet for creative expression, but was also a catalyst of communication that would help me better connect with my family and friends.
My childhood development was hindered by chronic ear infections, making it difficult to understand what people were saying to me. Repeatedly being met with frustration was a terrifying experience, and the constant inability to comprehend others made it hard for me to feel like I would ever be able to have meaningful interactions.
Despite that challenge, I went on to study 6 different languages in school, traveled abroad, and grew to love helping others through effective communication.
In addition to my web design work at Matthew John Design, I also work at Webflow as a Technical Support Specialist, troubleshooting website issues for Webflow customers. My motto is "be helpful" because being helpful and empowering gives me the greatest sense of fulfillment.
I expanded my freelance web design business into a small agency with more services, a client portal, and digital products.
I joined Webflow's Technical Customer Support team.
I worked as a Web Designer at NEATT and managed 15 Webflow sites for non-profit organizations.
I started working as a freelance web designer, building sites with Webflow and achieved Top Rated status on Upwork.
I worked as a Business Development Specialist at Lancaster Safety and helped businesses across the US improve their safety protocols.
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and minors in Portuguese & Japanese.
