After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Winthrop University, Keira spent her career planning and managing a wide variety of events from gallery receptions and galas to conventions and festivals. She has managed events for youth development, animal welfare, and the food industry, but her heart is in the arts.

Jeannie handles marketing and graphic design for the City of Mauldin. Born and raised in Greenville, she moved away from the Upstate to attend Winthrop University, where she earned a BFA in Illustration. She enjoys finding ways to communicate ideas visually, whether through realistic drawings or abstract design.
Jeannie likes to spend time with her friends, family, and cats. She writes and draws her own webcomic and when she isn’t making comics, she’s reading them. She also loves supporting the performing arts in the Upstate, from local theatre to indie musicians and more.
