Brandy joined the PayneWest team in 2016. She has made the most of her creative talents and interest in advertising by earning a BA in visual communications at the Northwest College of Art in Poulsbo, Washington. Upon graduation in 2001, she returned to her home town with a position at the Billings Gazette. Starting out in retail advertising, after a few years she ventured into online ad development, producing animated ads and some web programming. In 2009, Brandy began freelancing graphic design from a home office, fulfilling a personal goal to run her own business while staying close to her two young children. Brandy relished the opportunity to work for a spectrum of clients to master brand management and marketing strategies while polishing her personal professionalism. Brandy shares her skills to support various community development efforts, a passion second only to enjoying Montana with her children, Brody and Paisley.
