During that time she also enjoyed freelancing for Odwalla Juice in their early years.

During this time she also honed her design skills working for John Muir Publications creating book covers and interiors, and continued her freelance design work for local businesses, when she began a fortuitous partnership as lead designer for the Bioneers that continues to this day.
