Jessie-Lee Nichols works at Quintain Marketing as a marketing manager (graphic designer!), in Annapolis, MD. She received her BA in art with an emphasis in graphic design from Lynchburg College in 2009. She is fortunate enough to be married to the best guy a girl could ask for and helps to care for a wonderful gray kitty named Woody. When not designing or blogging, you can find her training for her next half marathon, building an extensive Etsy wishlist, spending time with family and friends or simply enjoying a glass of wine around her backyard firepit.
What exactly is “The Hyphen Tantrum” all about?
The truth? You have probably noticed by now that Jessie-Lee’s first name includes a hyphen (-). This was something both of her parents happened to be very proud of when she was growing up, in fact they still haven’t let up on it. That one little character has been an overwhelming obstacle her whole life! Almost no one can ever accept that it is part of her name. Every legal document she has ever had to fill out has been a challenge and she always ends up throwing a full on tantrum about that darn hyphen! There you have it, it’s really nothing more than a personal lifelong battle. When contemplating names for a personal blog, Jessie-Lee could think of nothing more perfect and reflective of who she is then to emphasize that hyphen!
