As a self-employed medical illustrator, I work with medical, legal, and scientific professionals to communicate complex information to a lay audience in the form of patient and consumer education materials and demonstrative exhibits. These illustrations show general anatomy, surgical procedures, injury summaries, mechanism of injury, timelines, and medical imaging interpretation.

With a background in advertising, marketing, education, and biological and anatomical sciences, it is my goal to help my students understand their full potential as both artists and academics.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in illustration from the Columbus College of Art and Design, a teaching certificate from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota, and a Master of Science in Biomedical Visualization from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am a certified medical illustrator and a member of the Association of Medical Illustrators.
