About Me

As a graduate of Kings College, I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications & Media Technologies, with a Graphic Design emphasis. I joined the Web Team at Marywood in March of 2010.

Working at Marywood has been a great experience. I really enjoy the group office setting we have, as well as helping all of our hard working content editors. My ultimate goal is to find ways make their lives a little easier. If you haven't had a chance to meet me yet, feel free to give me a call or shoot me an e-mail at amyfedele@marywood.edu. I enjoy a good conversation, jokes, and witty euphemisms.

What I do...

I am a graphic designer, and help web content editors at Marywood with the visual aspects of their department web pages. In Mark's words, I make things "look pretty." Over the years, I've also learned a lot of new skills to help out our content editors and make the website as easy to update as possible.

My Experience...

For the past 10+ years, I’ve worked hands-on in the design industry: within educational and agency environments and as a small business owner. Whew, that's a mouthful.

About Me...

All my kids have [big, white] paws. Roxy Ann is my rescued puppy/mutt, and Quincy is my tabby cat. I enjoy working on my house, DIY projects, landscaping, gardening, and creating art. Check out my blog at www.prettypurpledoor.com
