What opportunities do you help clients discover?
There is more to graphic reproduction and communication than just ink on paper.

Describe a crazy successful example of helping a client.
A client wanted an eight or 10-panel accordion folded piece, die cut to the shape of a teacup and saucer. I structured a piece, showed it to plant managers for approval, and presented it to the client as something we could and did produce.

What do you like about your position?
The coordination of all aspects of a project. I love doing layouts on paper. (Weird, I know.) Learning more about advancements in the Litho, Digital, Wide Format, and Mailing fields.

What do you like about working with the team at Westamerica?
How respectfully professional ALL the team members conduct themselves. So refreshing.

What is the biggest proof that you’re good at what you do?
I’ve been hired back by a couple of former employers during my career.

Describe some of the clients/industries you have worked with.
Restaurant, Health Care, Out of Home Campaigns, Marketing Firms.

A quote or phrase describing you or your job:
I’ve done this before! I can do it again.

What is your favorite word or phrase?
That’s like looking for fly Sh*# in pepper!

What sound or noise do you love, and why?
The sound of a distant train horn. It reminds me of vacations on my grandma’s property in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Forest Ranger

When you get to heaven, what would you like to hear God say?
You are finally here my child. Let us celebrate!
(What I hope he does not say is, “What are YOU doing here?”)

If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
My father in-law Jim Smith. To let him know how much I love his son, my husband Jeff, and that he is a great husband, friend and father.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would play the lead role as you?
Selma Hayek (according to my husband).

What’s your favorite smell?
The scent of wet Mesquite in the air of Phoenix/Tucson Az., right after a rainfall.

If you could speak to one type of animal, what would it be and what would you say?
Sasquatch. I would ask if there were more like her/him.
