My name is Shawna Armstrong and I am an Experience Designer located in Atlanta, GA. 
I strive to create environments and experiences that allow people to feel included, safe, uninhibited, and encouraged.

I spend my office hours working with the International Society of Arboriculture. I am not taking on new client work at this time; however, I may be open to collaboration on topics close to my heart: science fiction, education, voting rights, reproductive rights, LBGTQ+, TST, space, local ATL, cats, cocktails and all food in general. 

Let's talk.
