A Bit About Me

 Hi there! My name is Mandy and I absolutely love to making beautiful things and problem solving. I received a degree in graphic design and a minor in art history from Santa Clara University in 2012. I veered off path for a while, getting my masters in education and teaching for 5 years (all while creating amazing worksheets and doing some graphic design on the side). This past year I was hired as a private homeschool teacher that allowed me the time to pursue both of my passions. This year, I'd love to move forward with graphic design as my new career path and continue working with passionate clients and other creatives. With a commitment to my clients and an extensive skill set, which I am always developing, I always strive to exceed expectations. I like to stay at the forefront of all the latest trends so I can provide clients with modern and stylish ideas that help propel their businesses forward.
