At Finalsite, I've designed 50+ websites for schools around the world—from universities to public school districts; creating a mixture of unique, specific pages and comprehensive visual systems for each client.

Additionally, I lead in-person client presentations, conduct webinars, write blog posts, review designers’ sites, and train new designers. I also work closely with the front-end development team, the product team, and my manager on both creative and company initiatives.  

Highlights:

  • 20 industry awards, inc. 6 Davey Awards and 1 W3 award
  • Trained 8 new team members when Finalsite UK was acquired
  • 5-8 client onsite design and consultation trips per year
  • Collaborated on new time-saving Sketch style guide
