How has receiving the Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Award positively impacted you, personally and professionally?
When you have your own business and are working for yourself, it is an honor to be recognized within your industry. Personally, it has given me confidence and I even have it proudly displayed on my self-description in my “About Me” on our website 🙂
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Is it weird that in five years I hope I am still working and designing for Ginger P. Designs because I love it?
What advice can you share with others in this industry about growing a career, business, or network?
