Tingalls Graphic Design Staff
Tara Ingalls, Owner
A Virginia native, but true Wisconsin Badger, Tara is actually a self-taught graphic designer. She began offering freelance graphic design services in 1999 and quickly developed a niche in Madison offering high end, eye-catching designs with unheard of turnaround. Over a decade later, the company continues to grow specializing in marketing solutions for companies and nonprofits of all sizes and industries. Tara enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 daughters, going to the movies and driving open-wheeled Indy racecars. While her favorite cup of coffee is from Panera, no one dares try to bring her a cup. Her concoction of half-n-half plus 3 different flavors of coffee is hard to master.
Jess Scholz, Account Manager
A graduate of the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, Jess has her bachelor's in graphic design and a minor in journalism and mass communication. Her natural skills in communication, organization and time management make her a great asset to the Tingalls team. Outside of Tingalls, Jess enjoys spending time with her husband, going for runs with her Siberian husky Nakita, playing ultimate frisbee and hanging out with friends. While at home she can often be found cooking and baking and dreaming of vacation destinations. She also looks amazing in the color green.
Sierra Lewis, Account Manager
A West Coast native, Sierra graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Consumer Science. She takes great pride in the motto "clients always come first" which makes her an excellent fit at Tingalls. When Sierra is not working she loves to travel, spend time with her dog Teddie, fiancé Glenroy and grilling out with friends. She is also a coach for the YMCA swim team, loves training for full marathons and is the main source of a lot of laughter in the Tingalls office. The way to Sierra's heart is through candy and you'll be her best friend if you get your hands on Nerd Jelly Beans or Watermelon Sour Patch Wedges.
JoAnna Niven, Office Manager

From a farm kid living in the northwoods of Wisconsin to teaching in the Chicago public school system, she enjoys new experiences and challenges. JoAnna brings many skills to the office setting including her love of organization (we are all thankful for that!). Outside work, JoAnna can be found with her daughter Arianna in one hand and a camera in the other. She has photographed many spectacular sights while traveling the states and abroad and is also an amazing pregnancy and birth photographer.
Whitney Hein, Graphic Designer
Whitney graduated from UW-Stout with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Digital Photography. Her skills include extensive experience with print and identity design as well as photography. When Whitney's not designing at Tingalls she can be found whipping up a loaf of her delicious banana bread, taking a bike ride to the Farmer's Market, or relaxing at the Union with friends. While she loves Madison and everything it has to offer, she also enjoys traveling and most recently ventured to Costa Rica where she went zip-lining for the first time. Sometimes appearing as the silent-type here at Tingalls, don't discount her witty one-liners and hilarious phone accents.
