Experience

Webmaster

Oct 2008 - Current Morgan Community College

When I started in 2008, I was responsible for redesigning and upgrading the website, and getting the college on social media. I have worked closely with the Director of College Communications and Marketing as the sole web employee, performing the duties of a webmaster in both design, development, and ongoing maintenance. I have also quite often taken on the duties of a graphic designer in producing both internal and external collateral. As needed, I produce original photography for both mediums. I am also in charge of college-wide social media strategies. Additionally, I have also often been asked to do presentations on new design trends and technology for the other 12 colleges in our state-wide system, and have provided support to my counterparts.
