Alison Van Hoy

Creative Designer

I'm a driven, creative professional with a proven track record of success. I have a unique background with experience in graphic design, marketing, and interior design.

At my current position I do everything from project management, design, to administrative work. With over 8 years of experience, and working for smaller companies I’ve been able to take on a larger role. I’ve had to execute tasks under tight deadlines, complete multiple projects with a high level of professionalism and little or no supervision. I am a self-starter, team player, and know I’ll make a difference at the next position I step into.

MY TESTIMONIALS

What people are saying about me

"Alison has been a huge asset to my company. She has always been more than willing to dive in and learn, help, and contribute in any way possible to the success of my company. Her technical skills, reliability and dependability, positive attitude, and ability to successfully work and interface with everyone during the design process has been outstanding. Alison has done an excellent job and I would highly recommend her for employment."

Eric Jensen

CEO, Timbercraft Homes Eric Jensen

"I have known Alison for a number of years now, and have worked with her in a variety of capacities. From the very moment I met her, I have always been thoroughly impressed with her professionalism, her dedication, and her creativity. Alison possesses such a unique skill set that is a blend of her professional skills and her unparalleled vision, that she would be a true asset to any company or organization she works for. Alison, is just realizing her full potential which is scary because she already has done things with interior and graphic design that would “WOW” anyone. It is truly exciting to consider her bright future, and is an absolute privilege to be able to strongly recommend her!"
