myra alone3Myra's extensive skill set stems from her time spent working in each step of the design process. She started with a home-based business, performing print jobs for a local print shop. She was soon asked to manage the print shop, during which time she learned everything from how to run a press to completing the finish work. This experience taught Myra the necessity of staying current within her constantly growing industry. Myra uses this knowledge base to ensure precision in her unique and innovative design specifications.

She held this position for over 13 years, working collaboratively with the editorial and sales staff to produce a visually appealing and informative final product. While Myra was leading this team, the magazines served as one of the most lucrative ways to advertise in Alamance County.

Even with her proven record of consistently outstanding design and media work, Myra still boasts that her two children, ages 28 (Quinn) and 25 (Darrell), are her greatest accomplishment.

Myra's key to success is being open, honest,
and putting as much passion into her clients' businesses as she does her own.
