The experience I’ve gained over the years working for some of the best retailers in San Francisco has been invaluable; most recently as Creative Director for RedEnvelope, but also during my years as Director of Creative Services for Williams-Sonoma and The Gap. My education at The School of Visual Arts in NYC and UC Santa Cruz, where I met my husband, has also served me well. We have two wonderful teenage daughters who are attending public schools and taking advantage of San Francisco’s diverse cultural offerings. I am happy to live and work in such a vibrant city with so many creative possibilities.
