I have worn all the hats in the paper crafting industry from store owner, sales rep, paper designer, paper manufacturer,conceptual designer,design team coordinator, blogger to JustRite Product Development Director. My passion for design, color, paper crafting and consumer education has been a steadfast force throughout my career in the paper crafting industry. Designing new products for JustRite is a passion and I am so blessed to work with some of the most talented designers in the industry. I reside in Maine with my husband Tony of 7 years and his children Nick and Jack.
Color has always been a passion for me!! And the importance of what color brings into each of our lives has always been a driving force throughout my career. Until I started creating stamp designs with Amy Tedder (JustRite's Illustrator) and began seeing the gorgeous cards designed with those stamps. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing what talented designers and papercrafters create with your designs!! I am inspired daily by the wonderful cards created with JustRite Stamps.
