Since October 2002, I have been the owner of Bagwell Designs, LLC, a graphic design firm. My Simple Hat with a Twist knitting pattern was published in Stitch ‘n Bitch Page-A-Day Calendar 2008. In the summer of 2009, I developed a make-and-take art project and taught it to children in the community through the Arts for Kids program by the Boise City Department of Arts and History.
In April 2013, under Bagwell Designs, I became the Contract Communication Manager for Crane Creek Country Club in Boise, Idaho — a position that I still hold. I meet the graphic design and communication needs of nine departments and various membership committees. In 2014, I conducted the club’s first communication survey. I have improved the metric averages on the email list of approximately 1,000 contacts as follows:
• Open rate from 45% to 55%
• Click rate from 4% to 20%
• Bounce rate from 7% to 0.3%
I have a Master of Science degree in Public Communication through Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Fine Arts with High Honors in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York.
My recent volunteer experiences include:
• Regional Finance Leader for Alpha Sigma Alpha National Sorority
• Communication Director for AIGA Idaho
• Board Member for Boise Curling Club
