What drew you to O’Toole Design? The tight knit group of coworkers and the various opportunities that came along with working for a small firm.

What has been your most creatively fulfilling and challenging project so far at O’Toole Design? Hogan Trucking has challenged me in the best way possible, because I have been exposed to many new facets of the design industry.

What things do you like most about working at O’Toole Design? Fun group of coworkers who always keep things exciting, the amount of experience I am getting at such a quick pace, and the numerous opportunities to get involved in the design field.

If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be? A chef. I love food and I love to cook so that would make me a happy girl!

Who inspires you? My mom because she has such a strong work ethic and that is something I try to work on every day.

Where is your favorite place in the world? My lake house in Wisconsin. I have gone there ever since I was a baby and it is my happy place. Food, relaxing and boating…can’t get much better than that!

Any additional comments for our 25th? I am very proud of our company’s 25th anniversary. This is an awesome achievement for a small business, and it wouldn’t have been made possible without a driven principal and staff!
