Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Heather Marie. I am a copywriter and graphic designer based out of wherever the Air Force decides to send my husband. Currently, that is Woodbridge, Virginia (what up 22192).
I have loved writing ever since I was little. In the sixth grade, I won the Best Author award, so you might say I’m qualified. Afraid that I wouldn’t be able to make a career out of writing, I put my hobby on the back burner and pursued a degree in teaching. I’m proud to say that I am a licensed Elementary School Teacher qualified to teach grades K-6.
But something happened right as I was about to apply for teaching positions, the Air Force gave us orders. At first, I was devastated. But I started to look at it as an opportunity.
See, while I was going to school, I started up a small hobby blog to keep me busy (Prima Geek). That blog turned into a writing gig at the video game website Game Raven where I got a taste of what it was like to write for a living.
I was smitten. I started to look into virtual assisting, a job that I could take with me wherever we ended up landing. I have been able to work with some wonderful clients and make some lasting business relationships. Turns out, I’m pretty good at what I do.
My experience blogging allowed me to take my first steps into graphic design. And I LOVED it! I soaked up everything I could learn. Logo design, branding boards, social media templates, I loved it all!
In my mind, graphic design, like writing, allows you to display some of your personality (or some of your brand’s personality). It gives people a visual glimpse at what you’re all about. Let’s face it, as much as I’m all about words, images have a huge impact on people. You’re much more likely to go with a person who looks consistent and put together, am I right?
So that brings me to where I am today, an entrepreneur with a deep seeded passion for creating. I love taking ideas and bringing them to life. Helping you put your best foot forward so that the world sees what you have to offer.
