Welcome to Digital Design!

  • After working in the private sector for many years, I decided to share my knowledge by educating others to help them succeed and fill in the gaps in our community where capable and creative graphic designer careers are missing elements needed by many local businesses. These courses will help you figure out one of the several graphic design careers where your abilities and talents can best be utilized.

    I received my bachelor's degree in International Business from Stetson University in 2007 and received teacher training from Duke University in 2017. I've completed additional training from the Association of College and University Educators and have received the Promoting Active Learning micro-credential. I'm currently ESE and Business Education certified. I continually search for new avenues to help students learn and to increase their opportunities for success.
