Today I was invited by UT’s Employee and Organizational Development to serve as a panelist at a Women’s Experience in the Workplace session at the upcoming 2016 Professional Development Conference for Women. I’m honored and flattered to be invited, and look forwarding to sharing my personal experiences with colleagues.
I successfully presented my first webinar via Zoom Meeting to the Frederick Community College President’s Diversity Task Force.
Zoom Meeting is software similar to GoToMeeting or UberMeeting. I’m lucky to have IT at the university provide a pro-level subscription serve to the meeting software and detailed documentation, but my overall experience with configuration was painless.
I presented on communicating diversity in broad terms: opportunities, challenges, and then methods to consider for internal and external communications.
It was a challenging experience presenting via webinar, I am much more comfortable presenting via in-person settings like conferences or workshops. Unfortunately I couldn’t see the participants at Frederick Community College and there were some audio issues during the Q&A. However, I think my overall delivery of the content went well and I had a great experience prepping for this new opportunity.
Elm Creative launched G&P Masonry’s new branding and identity today!
G&P Masonry, a masonry company with locations in Chattanooga and Knoxville, worked with us to re-name their company, develop a new logo, tagline, visual identity, website, and a bit of PR.
We will be performing bi-annual web updates for them, and really look forward to a continued partnership.
Today I got a brand new computer for work and I am ecstatic to report it is a beefed up, brand new 2015 13″ Macbook Pro. I love it right away (of course) but quickly realized the new Force Touch trackpad did not have three-finger drag as a default option. I didn’t find the drag setting anywhere in the trackpad options (in System Preferences), but luckily I found a support thread that helped me out.
System Preferences > Accessibility > Mouse & Trackpad > Trackpad Options > Enable dragging (click checkbox) > three finger drag
Hard to find location, but SO HAPPY the functionality is still available.
I am ecstatic to announce that I’m a co-owner and partner in Elm Creative, a boutique communications firm.
We are a women-owned small business currently based out of Knoxville, Tennessee but have a national market. Our mission is to add value to society by amplifying the good work of others. That’s why we proudly specialize in servicing nonprofits, schools, community development organizations, and conscientious businesses. While our clients include a wide array, they have one common denominator—they add value to society.
I will continue to do consulting work through Luna Media, but now my design and development work will be run through Elm Creative.

I have to say, I am really proud of this site. The Early College of Arvada is a college preparatory, free public charter school of 300 students. ECA partners with University of Colorado at Denver to provide students the opportunity to take college courses while still receiving the high levels of support offered at the high school level.
They had an urgent need to redesign their website, and I am so happy to have helped achieve that goal. I think their site tells their story, mission, and future seamlessly and I couldn’t be prouder.
Vol Update is a bi-weekly student newsletter that our division of Media Relations sends out. I designed and developed a landing page (and mini-section) for Vol Update within our main campus news website. This landing page project was also accompanied by an e-newsletter redesign. The e-newsletter is now built within WordPress using a combination of multiple custom post types and fairy dust.
These easy ribbon boutonnieres are perfect for conferences, galas, and any occasion where you need a little added flair.
