What made you decide to pursue your degree in WDOC?

I have used the Adobe Creative Suite for a number of years, but have never had any formal training in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. The WDOC degree appealed to me because it combined instruction in layout and graphics with web design and online communication.

What has been the biggest thing you have learned in your classes?

I now have a better understanding of color, composition and typography.

What have you learned in your classes that you have already applied to your job?

I’ve applied layout and design principles in creating handouts for staff at the university where I work, and am always looking for other ways to put my new design skills to work.

What are your career aspirations?

I hope to continue my work in marketing and communications.

What accomplishment are you the proudest of achieving?

It’s been 15 years since I earned a bachelor’s degree in English at UF, so I’m proud that I took a leap and decided to pursue a master’s degree at my alma mater.
