RoAnna serves as the Director of Marketing & Creative Services for Sunrise Daisy, helping make sure the non-profit puts its best foot forward in a smart and engaging way. RoAnna has her B.S. in Graphic Design and is a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Coming from creative roots where the family business was an advertising agency, RoAnna has always lived design, art, photography and all things creative. She has a strong background in marketing and design, holding positions or executing contract work over the last 20 years with both small and large companies focusing on branding, logos, marketing, print, digital, web, environmental and packaging design.
RoAnna has completed design work for small businesses just starting out, and also large companies such as Kroger, Western Family Foods, and Storables. While working in the commercial real estate industry, she branded and marketed large commercial properties in the Portland area such as the US Bancorp Tower, The Commonwealth Building, Fremont Place, and Airport Business Park. She is currently the Senior Designer for a medical device company called Acumed, where she is in charge of the visual direction for the company’s brand, mainly handling photography, projects that support product marketing, trade shows, medical education events, and their digital presence. She also stretches her interior design skills as the Design Director for RD Development, a local company that renovates homes and reintroduces them into the community better than they were. RD Development hopes to raise the value of neighborhoods that were potentially on the downward turn and provide a superior product.
RoAnna also stays involved in supporting her community with volunteer work and supporting causes that touch her. She taught Art Literacy in the Hillsboro School District for 9 years, supplies creative work to charities such as Givetokens.org and Sanctity of Hope, and serves as a School to Career Mentor for the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. As a mentor, she coaches, teaches and guides high school students interested in a design career path for a term of school, making sure they get practical knowledge about what it takes to be a designer in the real world.
