Curating the World Artfully
Growing up I had a nickname. They called me Doodle. It was a sign of things to come! Always creating, building, making, baking – the artistic process was the way I fit in the world as a child. It was no surprise then, that in college, Art was the area I was drawn to.
After earning a Fine Arts Degree from Iowa State University, I caught the "Teaching Bug." And what a bug it was! I loved being a teacher! You might say I was born to do it! Teaching multiple grade levels in the Public School Systems of Iowa City and Marion, Iowa was such a joy! It blended my talents of Teaching, Coaching, Creative Thinking and Problem Solving, Curriculum Development, and Motivation into 7 plus years of awesome-ness!
When my family moved to Cedar Falls, I started freelancing my artistic skills by working for individuals, small businesses, and the Minneapolis Chapter of the Red Cross. After a number of years of logo design, curriculum development, creating cartoon characters and stories to teach Safety Concepts for the Red Cross Elementary Programs, it was time for another change.
Working for a marketing and advertising company for 5 years, I again used my artistic abilities in a business setting. Managing the design team and working directly with the client required a ton of creative thinking. As a Project / Account Manager problem solving, organizational skills, and coaching techniques were used daily to meet the client's expectations and budget!
Currently, I am offering my Project Management Marketing Skills and Coaching Experience to businesses, entrepreneurs, and micro businesses under my own business titled My Artful Pursuits. I love making the complex task of brand development simple, so businesses can feel proud of their image and attract their ideal customer!
