In the summer of 2017, Connie Beecher took a step of faith and after many years of graphic experience in advertising, collectables, wedding and textile design, she ventured into a full time freelance position, which included the launching of her new cottage industry, Old Pine Trading Company.
Having worked as an illustrator, graphic designer and art director for the Advertising firm, DePersico Creative, in addition to her work as a freelancer, Connie developed a broad knowledge of the advertising world.
Connie worked for 18 years as a volunteer in communication arts, and on staff, with Calvary Chapel of Delaware County. For 5 years, she led the Arts Team at CCDC, where it was the team’s responsibility to plan dance, worship and drama for services and events. Later, she freelanced for other churches, all of which provided her with a strong understanding of church communication needs.
Connie is a volunteer board member of the medical missions organization, Touching Lives Ministry – recently accepting the role of Women’s Ministry Leader and assisting with graphics, whenever needed. Connie developed her Old Pine Trading Company Etsy Store, with the aim of using a portion of the profits to help support her work in missions.
