About this pro

As a work at home mom who has been making a living on the internet for over 10 years, I know firsthand the importance of putting your best foot forward when it comes to your web presence. I also know that there is an overwhelming amount of choices and solutions for building your web site, getting your name out there and creating advertising media, social networking, blogging and on and on. It’s tempting to choose the option that seems to be the easiest and the fastest, but that usually causes headaches, and subpar or disappointing results. In the end, you may wind up wasting time, money, energy and other precious resources that would be better spent elsewhere.

Our services:

  • Responsive Web Design, Development, Maintenance and SEO
  • Content and Copy Services
  • Media and Graphic Design Services
  • Other Business and Local Services

My Story

I’m going to be real with you here for a minute.  I don’t have a degree in Computer Science.  I do not have a degree in Web Development. I have real world experience, and I’m completely self-taught. in 2006 I was working at a very busy corporate job (I was a Revenue Auditor for Casinos!) and I was miserable.  I really hated my job and hated the 3 hours of commuting I had to do every day from Denver up into the mountains and back. It was awful.

My partner at the time worked for a small GIS Company based out of Northern California; and the business owner wanted a web designer. Having always been artistic and crafty, and a quick learner, I took a risk.  I dropped everything to learn how.  I spent hours and days and weeks learning the ins and outs of HTML, PHP, JavaScript, CSS, layouts and design.  I paid for online training courses. I got some certifications; and I researched from others doing the same thing.

I started to notice some things.  There are a lot of ripoffs out there! People who charge exorbitant fees for outsourced products, proprietary software and graphics, and overpriced marketing and search engine optimization.  I learned that there are a ton of scams!  So I have made it my mission ever since to promote good, honest, web services.  I use as many open source tools as possible. I work from home.  All you pay me for is my time and expertise. I believe that I can still be successful as a web service provider and provide quality work while being respectful to the budgets of small businesses, non-profits and other work at home parents and entrepreneurs.

These days, I live in Eugene, Oregon with my husband Dustin and our daughters. In addition to this business we are working on building a homestead and I’ve just started homeschooling my kiddos!  I look forward to hearing about your projects and working with you.
