How did you find BBWO?
Philadelphia native, raised in North Philly, sights enlightened by the extended outreach of my education, through private and parochial Schools.
“Working with computers has been a passion for many years,” Venturing into the virtual world of digital arts has driven me to strive for higher
learning. Inspiration guided by strong role models, including
5th grade teacher; Sen. Robert Casey Jr.
Becoming a young mother of two wonderful boys to raise and
nurture, a family in the making, pursuing a goal, blurry, but in sight. Developing skills in the corporate world as a Receptionist / Administrator, the computer at my desk was a new world to explore. With doors being opened here and there, only slightly closed before me. The Boys grew-older and sights cleared the view for the realization of continuing my education became more achievable. In 2003 enrolling as an adult student into the Art Institute of Philadelphia’s, Digital Media Productions Bachelors program. Networking and expanding my knowledge brought me to Quintessence Entertainment Inc., summer of 2003 as an administrative assistant/editing intern.
