Hi, I’m Deb, the author behind The Lovely Ferns.

I’m a designer who collaborates mainly with photographers designing websites, books and marketing pieces. On occasion, I get to work with other creative types, too. My background is in editorial design and I started my career as a Design Editor at The Globe and Mail (I love Toronto). Since then, I’ve worked at a few newspapers and magazines including this newspaper, this travel magazine and this travel magazine.

The Lovely Ferns is my newest space. I decided I would use this space to write more (practice!) and share some of my personal health journeys, experiences, creations, and lessons as I make my way through what feels like a massive transition. When I started this blog, I was starting classes at the Maryland University for Integrative Health.

I had hoped to graduate with an M.S. in Nutrition and Integrative Health; take the CNS exam and become a licensed Clinical Nutrition Specialist.

But, plans change.

This Fall 2018, I will be a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the University of Miami where I will focus on interaction design and UX research to continue to hone my design skills and fill in some gaps. My goal is to be part of a team passionate about design and technology and how they can be used to help seniors and people with disabilities. You know, make a positive impact on the world for individuals and populations.

You can find me on Twitter, and Instagram.

My home is in Upstate New York. I’m married to this amazing man and “mom” to a Blue Russian Tabby mix and a Beagle.

Please, say hello.
