My story begins…
My love of web development started back in college. While pursuing a Graphic Design degree, I had one class for web design that taught us how to slice photoshop layouts up, and then making them functional by using a WYSIWYG to manually drop sections of the photos into tables… and that is as far as we got.
Where was the code? I knew there had to be more control. So as a hobby I taught myself the basics of HTML and CSS, and joined some of the first coding forums on the internet where I found whole communities of people doing awesome things on the web. They became my first mentors. When I graduated with my design degree I worked in several print design jobs by day, and freelanced doing web design at night and on weekends. I loved it so much that I decided to combine my eye for design and new found love of coding, and pursue a career as a web designer and developer.
Wasting no time, I moved my husband and I across the country and landed my first job in web development.
Over the course of my career, I have helped numerous small businesses, government agencies and individuals with their website needs!
Today, I offer my affordable web design and web development services to creative marketing agencies, existing in-house web development teams and others who are in need of an extra hand. My love of design and code has never wavered, and I am happy to say that I made the right decision all those years ago!
When I’m not busy designing, coding or thinking up the next big thing: I like to be creative offline as well. I do some watercolor painting whenever I can get the chance. I’ve also converted my designer husband into a fellow web developer, and you should go check him out after you are done here. He’s pretty cool!
