Description:Ann Karpinski is passionate about all forms of communication: written, verbal, and visual. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in mass communications and natural resources science from the University of Minnesota, she was a communications intern at several nonprofit organizations, including Minnesota Alliance for Arts in Education, Minnesotans for an Energy-Efficient Economy, and the National Park Foundation. During her internships, she whetted her interest in copywriting and graphic design. She then worked over eight years at Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), where she started out as an administrative assistant and quickly moved into roles as a publications manager and graphic designer. During her tenure at EDF, she studied graphic design at the Art Institute of Colorado, Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, Boulder Digital Arts, and Graduate School USA in Washington, DC. She also had the unique opportunity as a product manager and verse writer at Leanin' Tree, Inc. to write everything from sentimental Mother's Day greeting cards to bathroom humor cowboy cards. Her latest professional focus is learning web development and coding so she can make her ideas come alive on the web and mobile devices. Ann served as Co-Director of Sustainability on the AIGA Colorado Board of Directors from 2008-2010 and is the current Public Relations Chairperson for Boulder Writers Alliance. She is available for freelance and full-time employment opportunities.
