I have successfully led gift design, home d├ęcor and social expression programs and have directed art directors and designers. I’ve designed and launched new products, sourced and designed with international vendors, managed design and oversaw production staff. Throughout my career I was an innovative and award winning creative director and designer for Hallmark Cards and other gift organizations.
