I am the Web Content Manger for the Education College within a large institution and also run my freelance design business, Tri-Star Design. I enjoy building up my web design portfolio and working with a variety of clients, in addition to creating unique digital invitation designs for my Etsy Shop. Additionally, I teach Fashion Studies as an adjunct professor. My family is actively involved with Boston Terrier Rescue and fosters homeless Boston Terriers.
