“Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns
in order to look at things in a different way.”

Hi, I'm Tori - the face of VBM Creative! As a child, I expressed my love for creation through
arts and crafts and scrapbooking. As I got older, I developed an interest in interior design/decorating (I loved making floor plans in my middle school Home Economics
class!), photography, and graphic design - shout out to my high yearbook class!  

After high school, I packed my bags and traveled 14 hours west to start my adventure at
the University of Missouri. Majoring in magazine journalism, I had dreams of following in the footsteps of famous female muckrakers. After introductory journalism classes and a semester of reporting for a bi-lingual Latino magazine, I decided journalism was not the path for me.
As I took design and photography classes (some part of my major and some elected), my artistic side began to re-emerge, and my passion for graphic design and photography 
came alive.   

After graduating from Mizzou, with three internships under my belt, I dove headfirst into my first marketing job for a mortgage broker - a position that combined my writing and design skills. Since then, I have worked as an in-house designer in several fields - including education and healthcare. VBM Creative was inspired by my passion to create and make the world around me beautiful. 

​I feel extremely blessed to be able to do what I love for a living! Design is truly my passion. Contact me for your design or writing/editing needs.  I would love to get to
know you and bring your ideas to life!

Jesus. Music.
Sour gummy worms. Frappuccinos. Pepsi. Sunny days. Margaritas. Christmas
...these are
a few of my favorite things.
