Sprout Design Studio
My commitment to the field of strategic marketing and design has come from the harvest of my experiences working at the executive level in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors of the outdoor industry for nearly two decades.
I am passionate about what I do and serve my clients with enthusiasm for and commitment to their projects. There is nothing I enjoy more than engaging in a collective creative process with entities that want to grow and thrive.
With a degree from Middlebury College in Vermont, I returned to my native Colorado in 1996 to work for the Colorado Outward Bound School, the San Miguel Watershed Education Project and Lizard Head Mountain Guides. In 2000, enamored with the idea of blending successful business strategies with my love of the outdoors, I founded Telluride, Colorado's premier source for mountain adventures, the San Juan Outdoor School and started the affiliated non-profit San Juan Field School. As the CEO of the Outdoor School, I worked extensively in business organization and promotion, graphic design and print media and website management. In serving as the Executive Director of the Field School, I refined my technical and grant writing skills and came to understand how community support is needed to run non-profit organizations. In the interest of taking these skills to the next level, I sold the San Juan Outdoor School in 2006 and started Sprout Design. Since that time, I have worked with a variety of regional and international entities to create brand identities, craft logos, develop infrastructure and launch strategic marketing campaigns.
