Who I am

Kari Marie White

Graphic Designer & Project Manager

Passionate about helping small to mid-size companies grow, I have over 12 years of experience working as an in-house designer to build up and enhance visual brands while using my organizational skills to keep everything running smoothly.

I'm also a wife, dog lover, INFJ, Disney-enthusiast, Walking Dead fan, cheese popcorn addict, and aspiring young adult writer. But not necessarily in that order. I'm also a writer seeking more opportunities to write. For more information about my writing and my love of all things YA, visit my blog: www.karimariewhite.com
