Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, this former rodeo queen graduated from Arizona State University at age 19 with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication with a focus in Media Management and Sales. With a specialty in the automotive events industry, she has spent over a decade managing the public relations, marketing and event design for manufacturers and automotive auctions across the country.
Her wanderlust runs deep, with her greatest passion firmly rooted in travel. Humbled to have visited over 40 countries, she is constantly looking for the next adventure and opportunity to explore the unknown. She prefers traveling to remote and obscure locations where bugs are abundant, tourists are nonexistent, plans are usually “iffy” and vaccinations are required. From volunteering in Africa, trekking through Patagonia, backpacking through Asia, diving with sharks in the Caribbean to sleeping in the jungles of Central America—she is most in her element when traveling off the beaten path, encountering language barriers and negotiating border crossings.

When you hear the word “PowerPoint,” what comes to your mind? Many would say their thoughts include boring corporate events, long-winded presentations, and possible snoring. PowerPoint slide decks can be illustrative, dynamic visual aids, but they are more commonly designed in a way that prompts audiences to nap rather than engage.
While clip art may have once served a useful purpose for you or your organization, there are now a plethora of ways to avoid it and find higher quality alternatives instead. We promise, your quest to banish clip art will be easier than you think, and, ultimately, by using better images and illustrations in your presentations and documents, you’ll produce more impactful work.
