I “met” and became friends with Jes Singletary, founder of The Parker Reese Foundation, through an ad I had placed on a blog.  Her story was and is so moving to me.  Jes lost her beautiful young daughter, Parker Reese, to congenital diaphragmatic hernia at two days old.  She and her husband formed the foundation through their love for their daughter.  The Parker Reese Foundation helps in the fight against this disease by funding medical research, advocating public awareness campaigns and by supporting all who have been affected by the congenital diaphragmatic hernia birth defect.

Parker’s House was opened in May 2008 for families delivering babies with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) or coming back for follow up appointments and/or surgeries at Duke University Medical Center or University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill (UNC).  This house is free of charge to families and provides them the opportunity to stay overnight or for months at a time.  It is a home away from home for them, a place where they and their extended families can stay with absolutely no worries.

I have worked as a web and graphic designer for the past eight years.  In addition to Purple Lemon Designs, I am Director of the Main Street Association in Corinth, MS.  I have lived in Mississippi most of my life, and I am definitely a Mississippi girl at heart.  I graduated twice from Mississippi State University (Go Bulldogs!).  I take inspiration from nature and things I find in my surroundings.

  2. Thank you for this feature about Kelly from Purple Lemon Designs. I find her work very appealing and it’s exciting to know more about what drives her as well. Also, I knew nothing about the Parker Reese Foundation before this so that’s also eye-opening.
