About Me


and thank you for visiting my website!

My name is Laura Mihelich. I am a marketer, designer, and writer from the Chicago, IL area.

My passion lies in spreading awareness, reducing stigma, and storytelling.

From 2014-2019, I worked at an ad technology company, where I focused on retailer weekly ad websites and banner ads. Before discovering the world of web design, I pursued in journalism, graduating from the University of Iowa with a BA in journalism and psychology and going on to receive a Master’s of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University.

I have experience in supporting company re-design efforts, building websites and advertisements within national retailer brand guidelines, enhancing journalistic storytelling through layout, and writing compelling narratives for media publications.

Most recently, I completed a professional marketing certificate from the University of California San Diego Extension, as well as a certificate in nonprofit management from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I also spend time volunteering for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Northern Illinois chapter, where I assist with social media, website updates, and act as a NAMI representative at local events.

In my spare time I love traveling, binge watching all the TV shows, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
