Gennifer Richie

President & Creative Director

Gennifer Richie founded Odessa Design in 1997 with a vision of creating a design studio that was built on trust, integrity, and a passion for doing it right. With more than 23 years of experience partnering with small businesses, corporate entities, and everything in between, she still thrives on working directly with clients to hone in on their essence and develop a plan for creating visually striking, meaningful communication tools that help their businesses grow.

Gennifer is deeply invested in her community and believes it is a great way to honor her roots and give back to those who have supported her journey. She is currently a member of the New Cumberland Borough Council, Board member and secretary of the New Cumberland Public Library, and an active member and the Marketing Chair of the New Cumberland Business & Professional Group.

Gennifer is happily married to Paul, has two active sons, Ethan and Ben, and a dog, Jake.
