"My journey in the industry started out after I gained a Diploma in Graphic Design and a Certificate 4 in Photography & Photo Imaging. I spent my first 2 years at a boutique design agency. I covered all areas of design for digital and offset printing, plus the occasional website to design and develop.
Beginning of 2012, I began my own business, Soda Graphics. I also accepted a part-time Graphic Design position at the Sunshine Coast's most highly recognised advertising agency. Working there with a very delightful and high profile marketing team, we rolled out large projects for clients such as Gold Coast Tourism, Sunshine Coast Tourism and Sunshine Coast Destination.
For 2013, Soda Graphics kept slowing growing and I joined the Secrets head office team, a national fine jewellery retailer, being their part-time Graphic Designer & Marketing Coordinator, to cater for the 12 stores over Australia. It was an absolute pleasure working on national campaigns with such a great team! I produced full-page ads for magazines such as Marie Claire, lots of exciting in-store collateral plus the individual store's online and press advertising.
On my 30th birthday, I attained my Nikon Digital SLR camera and have been utilising my qualifications in photography, supplying high quality photos for client's print, web or portrait shots.
Since moving to Cooloola Cove, Qld, I now enjoy working with my growing number of local and state-wide clients. I love catching up for meetings, creating proofs and printing on my amazing FujiXerox printers! Soda Graphics has really made a mark on the Cooloola Coast, making it very convenient for a lot of local businesses, especially since a FREE mobile service is provided for meetings and deliveries.
I take the time to understand what each person is trying to achieve in business and can even provide advice to best portray their business goals in advertising. I believe in delivering quality products and services for an affordable price. I strive to build up businesses, portraying their identity to attract their target market."

Friends and family say I have a 'bubbly' personality. Growing up in Queensland, there was nothing like a cold soda on a hot Summers day. Ohh so refreshing! So we put 'bubbly' and 'fresh' together with a splash of 'vintage' - when things were made high quality to last - and voila!!! Soda Graphics!!
