Career Goals

As a Digital and Web Designer, and a 2021 UMGC graduate with a BS in Digital Media and Web Technology, I seek collaborative projects where I can initiate, develop and execute the design of visual materials for web and print based materials. During my journey at UMGC, and being on the receiving hand of online education, I have developed a strong interest in multimedia and motion graphics tools as well as instructional design. I would like to first work with the faculty of my department to develop web-based instructional materials, to meet today’s demands in instruction methods, and remain competitive in higher education that is shifting to instruction online. Second, I seek freelance projects with small organizations, to help them develop a web presence.


Biography

Born and raised in Paris, France, I graduated with an associate degree in Business Administration in 1989; I discovered the world of desktop publishing in the early 1990s in France, working for a computer asset management software company. I designed and produced a user guide and a reference guide by learning QuarkXPress and desktop publishing principles on the spot! This was a challenge that I gladly accepted as I fell in love with the process of creating these documents instantly.

In 1995, I moved to Canada, where I accepted a position as a desktop publisher for a technical writing company working for both corporate and government entities. My skills quickly expanded to designing digital marketing materials, user and reference guides, online help for applications, and intranet and internet websites.

I moved to the United States in 2003 and joined a non-profit community organization. As the program coordinator, I developed marketing collaterals, summer and winter programs, and a pre-school brochure.

In 2011, I joined the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health as an administrative specialist. In addition to my responsibilities, I developed and maintained communications materials to increase the department exposure, websites for faculty projects, and marketing materials to promote the master’s programs.

Throughout my career, I have worked on many digital and web design projects either for my primary employer or as a freelancer. I strive to deliver high quality work utilizing the latest applications and technology.
