Hi, I'm Helen. Thanks for visiting my site! Rural Route MN isn't just my brand name, it's more than that -- it's my life. I'm a small-town girl with big ideas. I believe inspiration can be found anywhere, from a prairie drive to an evening with my kids. Along my route, I’ve developed a unique style and embraced emerging trends in design. I'm a passionate story teller who will use my expertise to bring your vision to life.

My insatiable love of art began at a young age. I pursued visual arts in high school at Perpich Center for Arts Education in Golden Valley, Minnesota. I studied photography after graduation at College of Visual Arts (CoVA) in Saint Paul and Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). I graduated from Mankato State with a BFA in Graphic Design and minor in Illustration.

Professionally, I'm the Marketing Director for Mom’s Design Build. I wear many hats including designer, stylist, illustrator and strategist. I am currently taking on a select number of freelance clients. Services I can provide include: re-branding, consulting and art directing. I invite you to explore my work and I look forward to collaborating with you.
