"Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to draw. Being told that there were no jobs where one could draw, she attended Baldwin-Wallace to become an art teacher. Upon graduation, she found there were no art teaching jobs around where she lived, so she applied for a position at American Greetings where she got hired by an ex-teacher. It was there her adventure in greeting card world began in art and design. She worked with many talented people including Tom Wilson, the creator of Ziggy, as well as worked on many creative projects
including Care Bears. From conventional to cute and humorous designing, greeting cards filled her world for 39 years. Then she retired and a new journey began."
