MEET THE OWNER & DESIGNER

Think back to when you were a child. What were your passions? What did you love to do? And did that passion stick with you?

I can remember in the first grade we had to “write a book” and “design the cover.” Fast forward 20+ years and here I am, living out my childhood passions.

worked in print publishing for 8 years at Wells Fargo before venturing off to be my own boss with Harford Designs. I am the owner, graphic designer, and web designer. And I’m not afraid to tell you the truth about your existing designs. 

It’s also no secret that I’m an active mom of two-under-two and wife of a Baltimore City Police Officer. Let’s just say I’m a scheduling genius! I work non-traditional hours, but I’ll answer the phone or reply to text anytime between the normal 9-5 and later.

Let me share my passion with your business and encourage and support you in your own entrepreneurial pursuits.
