My story begins with a humble background, my family history can be traced to the late 1800's and early 1900's when many of my ancestors immigrated to Appalachia in search of better work opportunities.
They worked as coal miners, farmers, and teachers.

I'm born, the daughter of traditional media and psychology. When I was a child my mother worked in Newspapers, starting out as a journalist and working her way up to publisher over a 6 year span of time. My father was a counselor for troubled youth.
Money was tight growing up so I went to work with my mom after school most days. From the ages of
5-11 I learned how to file documents, became fluent in Microsoft suite, and absorbed marketing knowledge by listening to her in meetings.
During this time I developed an understanding of ROI, KPI's, Features VS Benefits, color psychology, and other key marketing knowledge.
I developed a solid understanding of traditional media: newspaper, printing presses, radio, and TV at this time.
I started my design journey in the 2000's when I began designing graphics and "custom coding" my own Neopets pages.
This is "JustADoodle"
the JubJub I adopted
