Thank you for taking the time to view my online portfolio. To introduce myself, my name is Mandy Matzek. I have lived here in Prescott, Wisconsin my whole life. If you ask "what is the meaning of life?" I would tell you that it is my two sons and husband. We are blessed to live near our parents/grandparents, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and many lifelong friends. I love the community I live in and am an active member of my town, schools, and church. I truly believe that “it takes a village”. The honest and hard-working values of a farming family and my little village of citizens has taught me responsibility, respect, honesty, and integrity. And yes, as a true Wisconsinite, I love my Packers, Brewers, and Badgers.
I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a degree in Marketing Communications. I worked at Target Corporation in Minneapolis, Minnesota for almost six years. This was an opportunity of a lifetime! I was able to learn and work on direct and e-mail marketing programs, from beginning to end, at one of the world’s top retailers. I learned a plethora of analytical skills and standards on what it takes to execute a smart and financially responsible campaign. Target is known for its extraordinary marketing programs and I am proud to have had the opportunity to work on many successful projects.
It was shortly after my first son was born that I realized that my new blessing took precedence in my life over my corporate career. Yet, I still felt that there was a way that I could balance motherhood and the desire to find fulfillment in personal ambitions. With prayer, a supportive husband, and a few friends who took the plunge with me, M-Vision Web Design was born. Over the years, web design has grown to be only a portion of my work. With experience, growing skills, and client collaboration my work has evolved to assist in cohesive messaging and branding for my clients’ marketing. I find myself spending equal amounts of time developing branding through graphics, marketing elements, web design, photography, social media, and e-commerce.
When I am not working my passion and time is spent with my family, friends, and community. Now that my boys are in school, I thoroughly enjoy watching their success in academics and making new friendships with kids and families along the way! We take great pleasure and pride in watching our boys begin their adventure in playing competitive sports and in learning the value of discipline, hard work, and sportsmanship. My husband and I both are active in our school district and serve in various capacities within the district and our community recreation programs as coaches. I also am an active member in my church and community - most recently was appointed as the president of the Prescott Foundation. The four of us have simple travels with trips to games (kids leagues and professional when we are lucky!) and to the cabin a few times in the summer. Family competition in who-can-catch-the-most-fish is always our highlight.
Thank you for riding along this journey with me.
All the best,
