Ever since I could remember, I loved to draw. After being the first from both sides of my family to graduate college I knew I had something that no one could ever take from me – knowledge. I did not want to be a starving artist with a fine arts degree so I decided to pursue another career path in the digital arts realm. I was able to accomplish graduating with an associate’s degree focused in desktop publishing and received a handful of certificates such as digital darkroom and digital pre-press to name a few. After the web and multimedia degree was fresh and new, I decided to get my undergraduate degree in Interactive Media Design from The Art Institute of California. After learning all aspects of design I really wanted to pursue advertising to grow my knowledge and understand how to place all these creative pieces together, which has led me to this point–aspiring to be a creative lead in my current role at Adventist Health Corporate. My aspiration was to develop an internal creative department for one of the facilities/hospitals of Adventist Health. Ever since reaching my midpoint goal, I have been promoted to corporate and will begin to lead all the 19 Adventist Health facilities to collaborate and build synergy. As a brand advocate I am also learning about brand development and creating with our current brand initiative. This journey has been an eye-opener and I am looking to grow more through the institution and to one day bring all creative into one department that would create campaigns and supporting elements for our enterprise.
