Since 2007, EPIC has provided $4M+ in pro-bono design services to 50+ nonprofit organizations in Chicago and Minneapolis by engaging 1000’s of the most talented creatives in volunteerism. In 2012, she opened the HOW National Design Conference by sharing the EPIC story. She’s been Adjunct Faculty for the IIT Institute of Design and for graduate programs at Northwestern University.
