What do you do in your current role at Barbour?
I love my job!!! I am a Production/Layout Artist and I design anything from book interiors, book wraps, and also book cover treatments.

I grew up in New Philadelphia, Ohio and have also done clerical and data entry work at Twin City Hospital in Dennison, Ohio. When I heard about an opening that was in the area I jumped on the chance. I feel so lucky to work for a company that also values God and His teachings.
What interests you about the publishing industry?
As a little girl I was either writing short stories or drawing. My twin brother, Zach, and I would pretend we were characters in our favorite books, and still to this day I love getting lost in a great book. I love being a part of passing on someone's story.

Anything found at the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner!
What's your favorite vacation spot?
Somewhere warm with a sandy beach
What's your favorite Bible verse?
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope"
Name something you miss about being a kid:
I miss the notion that time didn't exist. Summer vacation seemed like it was a year long, and Christmas could never come soon enough.
Name something you love about being an adult:
I love all the opportunities adulthood presents…from travel to finding what you are passionate for. As an adult you can keep dreaming as you did as a child, but now you have wings to go after those dreams.
What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
I love to listen to music and to zone-out into something creative, such as drawing or writing. On the colder Sundays it's always nice to curl up in comfortable clothes and watch a classic movie.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I love to bake pies from scratch
