Tandra is the Sr. Creative Director for Oxygen Advertising, Inc. She is your standard teenager…. stuck in an adult body. She’s fun, energetic and very spontaneous. Although at first glance she seems a bit girly, it’s just a facade for her tomboy heart. The beach, camping, horseback riding…. they are no match for this outdoorsy gal.
Tandy, as those closest to her have always known her, has the reputation as a straight shooter. She’ll always tell it like it is and is as social as they come. If she’s not hanging out with one of her friends – most of whom she’s had since high school – she’s out on the town, most likely meeting new and interesting people.
When all is said and done at the end of the day, she most looks forward to seeing her daughter, Sea, and her 21 year old son, Casey. Truly best friends, these three are like peas in a pod. We’re just not sure who’s antics have rubbed off on who!
Tandra was recruited to work in a design studio right out of high school in Orlando, Florida and has been a graphic designer ever since. She has worked as Senior Art Director for a large firm in downtown Orlando and was the Senior Creative Director for large marketing firm in Ocala that had a studio for shooting TV commercials, cutting radio spots in-house, a media-buying department, and a graphics division that Tandra was brought on to expand. The firm went from having a small graphics department to having the largest one in Central Florida in a few short months after Tandra became Creative Director.
Most of the clients who work with Tandra today have worked with her for decades. She is very loyal and works very hard for her clients – who have become her friends – over the years.
She has won more awards than she can count for Creative Excellence, including Best of Show multiple times, Judge’s Choice multiple times and hundreds of Gold and Silver Addy Awards. She was named Small Business Person of the Year in Marion County in 2006 and her business was garnered one of the Top 10 Best Places to Work.
