My name is Sara Bouchard and I’m Roundpeg’s new WordPress designer. I graduated high school in Fishers, Indiana and then moved on to get my degree at IUPUI. After changing majors six times, I finally landed on Computer Graphics Technology which was the right mix of art and technology. Specializing in Interactive Multimedia Development, I learned to create and design websites. There I also took classes in design, motion graphics and video production. I also completed internships in the Office of Student Involvement, Cyberlab at IUPUI and Q7 Associates. I also had the opportunity to study abroad in Poland where I helped teach introductory classes to students at universities throughout the country.
As a recent grad, one of my goals was to find a company and team where I would have the opportunity to learn new things and get into the industry. I knew Roundpeg was a great option for me because I would be able to grow my web design skill set in a tight-knit group of professionals who love marketing. I was attracted to Roundpeg’s approach to marketing, social media and design. I also loved that there would be cats.
In the coming months, I hope to gain more skill working with clients and helping them achieve their goals. I’d like to gain more skill with WordPress and become a more proficient, experienced web designer. Along the same lines, I’d like to dive into creating more customized CSS for websites and becoming more skilled at development.
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my nine pound rescue poodle, Zooey (don’t tell her I’m giving attention to cats all day), reading anything and everything, listening to podcasts and antiquing.
I am excited to to see what I learn throughout the next couple months and grow as a designer at Roundpeg.
