Hey everyone, my name is Jazmin Decker and I am currently a student at Brenau University who is striving to obtain a degree in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Studio Art. This upcoming semester I will be in my third year at Brenau. I am very involved on campus through the Brenau Fashion Network, the plethora of arts classes I take each semester, and the incredible softball team that I have had the pleasure of playing on these past few years. I have a passion for photography and ultimately leaving an impact on the world through art and fashion. As a shy and inverted person, I love to leave my mark on other people through the pieces I create and the articles that I write. When I was asked to assist with this magazine, I saw this as an incredible opportunity to expand my experience and create an amazing opening into the insight of all things Missouri!

My passion has always been photography. I received a point and shoot camera at 10 years old and haven't set a camera down since. I took three years of film photography in high school and fell in love with watching my photography physically appear before my eyes. I love walking into a photo shoot with an idea in my head and leaving with the idea physically in my camera. I get to show everyone how I view the world through my own eyes.
I graduated from Webster University in St. Louis with a BA in photography with an emphasis in commercial photography. I also completed two minors in Marketing & Advertising Communications and Graphic Design. I am someone who is very motivated and always needs something to do.
My husband and I live in Springfield, Missouri. As a recent college graduate, I am very excited to be joining this team. I am excited to be on this journey and get to share my love of the Ozarks with all of our viewers.
Graphic Design...it’s what I do, it’s what I love. I love all aspects of design. I love to tackle the challenge of coming up with the best design concept to get your message across. I love finding the right font, the right colors, and the right layout.
I graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta with a degree in Graphic Design in 2009. As a wife of 17 years at the time and a mother to two kids who were in the 3rd and 5th grade at the time, it was a great accomplishment to finish college and be an example to my kids to follow your dreams and do what you love.
Fast forward to now. I am celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary this year, my daughter is a sophmore in college and my son is a senior in high school. When I was approached to help kick off this magazine I was really stoked. It’s exciting and refreshing to get to learn all the things about Missouri and see why every one LOVE’S Missouri so much!
