Katy Trice (me!) is the ABC’s Media Coordinator, which means she is in charge of sharing ABC’s story. Currently, she maintains our WordPress blog with the help of our Historian and posts to our Instagram. Katy has been a Graphic Designer since high school, and even though she did not pursue Digital Media in college she still loves to create in any way possible. Her major actually is English with a Secondary Teaching Certificate. To her, English and Media are intertwined. To be a good designer you also have to communicate through the art, whether that art is digital, text, photo, graphic, etc.
She became a part of ABC when Dani and her became friends in a college class, and Dani mentioned that she needed a logo for this internship. Katy chimed in that she could make one, and did Dani have any idea what she wanted. Dani suggested a butterfly because life is always changing and needs small miracles like butterflies. Some designs in the works include logos and slogans for each of our locations, and clothing designs.
ABC is a way for Katy pursue and share her love of art through sharing ABC’s story. She has a passion for children–hence the Teaching Certificate. And not only is she contributing to ABC, but ABC is contributing to her growth as a Teaching professional by learning education styles and philosophies from her creative peers within the program.
