Hey there, I'm Eden Conrad
(née Carlsen-Rousselle).

I'm a multi-disciplined workaholic graphic designer & operations manager.

Energetic, passionate, and always doing something big. That’s me.

I’ve been building web sites since I was nine. I’ve been designing logos since I was 14. I was a youth ambassador at 15. I took my first corporate leadership position at 24, and I have no plans on slowing down any time soon. I’m career-focused, passionate and always looking for the next ‘big project’ to get me inspired.

My formal education is as a graphic designer, but my trade is operations management. Whether it’s day-to-day operations for small teams, sales forecasting, content generation for multiple channels, AR/AP accounting, or developing e-commerce web sites, I’ve done it. I’ve thrived on it. And I’m always ready for the next challenge.

When I’m not in the office — and let’s be honest, it isn’t that often — you’ll find me volunteering with girls’ leadership groups like Job’s Daughters International, or non-profit organizations like KidSport, staying active (obstacle courses like Tough Mudder are a favorite), or checking out the newest craft brewery.

As a designer…

Beyond personal design projects and the occasional freelance contract in high school, I started my career with an internship with the award-winning Powell River Peak.

I graduated from the Art Institute of Vancouver (now LaSalle College) in 2009, with a focus on print & graphic design, where I was able to marry my skills on the screen to my skills with ink and paper. 

After graduation, I expended my web development skills by working more with server side languages, search engine optimization and copy writing. Understanding these elements have been critical in my career in ecommerce.

As a leader…

If energetic is the first word that comes to mind to describe me, then dedicated has to be the second word.

I’ve worked with the same clients for more than a decade. I’ve been with the same group of companies since 2010. I volunteer with the same youth organizations I was a member of as a teenager.

Moreover, I’ve been in leadership roles going back to middle school. I’ve ran student councils. I’ve been a chairperson and a Keynote speaker. Taking a step further, I have been recognized as one brand’s trusted educator since 2015. I’ve been involved in training employees for ten years, and onboarding for seven.
