As Go’s Communications and Marketing Manager, Eileen draws upon over 20 years in the creative arts to lead company-wide integrated communications, marketing, and design. She works closely with the project teams to create clear visuals that engage, inform, and communicate big ideas and complex data through visual storytelling and infographics. Her experience as a graphic designer and her collaborative approach allows Go to innovate and to bridge the understanding gap between our team and our clients, so our clients can make informed choices.
After getting her Bachelor of Arts in Archaeology from the University of Washington, she worked for the US Forest Service in Oregon, at a state park in Arkansas and as a technical illustrator for Eachtra Archaeological Projects in Ireland. It was her time in Ireland, drawing artifacts, creating maps, retouching photos, and laying out reports that led her back to school to study design through an intensive certificate program at The Bradford School where she graduated as valedictorian.
Eileen has been fortunate to work on a lot of different projects; producing large corporate advertising campaigns, developing small business branding, designing retail packaging, creating wedding invitations, painting murals, laying out books and manuals, organizing fundraising campaigns, writing grant proposals, and designing visuals from technical data. She loves connecting and collaborating with people, solving problems, and learning!
When not creating and communicating, Eileen spends her time outside with her family - hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, or paddling a canoe. Eileen is a graphic designer, illustrator, visual storyteller, spreadsheet enthusiast, crocheter & sewist, and a small-time adventurer.
