As many of you know, I have a strong background in Theatre
and dedicate much of my time to organizations
that promote the involvement of women and girls in the arts. Naturally, this project with the WAM Coalition
was close to my heart. I was honored when this highly respected organization contacted me through LinkedIn
and asked for my guidance! They wanted the new site and logo to be vibarant, colorful and full of energy. I’m happy to report that their feedback has been full of praise, they are thrilled with the outcome!
