Graphic and Web Designer


As a digital marketing specialist at Succeeding Small, I have the pleasure of encompassing a brand’s identity within a fresh logo. After I graduated from Oklahoma State University with degrees in international business as well as marketing, I moved to Colorado Springs. 

So far, my favorite part about working with Succeeding Small has been getting to know the people behind small businesses. Our clients are always passionate about their crafts, and it’s a delight to help their businesses flourish.
