My Journey to Becoming a Website Designer

I thought I would share a bit about my journey to becoming a website designer and how I strive to help my clients shine online.

My Start

My journey began in 2001 while I was traveling abroad in London. I wanted to share information with my family about my travels, but there wasn’t an easy way to do that. At the time, WordPress wasn’t even available, so I decided to build a website. This was my introduction to coding and building websites and my first foray into the world of blogging.

My Nonprofit Experience

When I got my job working with a nonprofit, they needed a website. I decided to take it on and do it myself, digging into WordPress and learning the best practices for what should appear on a website to secure clients and donations. During this time I had to wear a lot of different hats, and I liken this to my journey in entrepreneurship.

Transition to Entrepreneur

When my son was born in 2014, I didn’t want to work full time for a nonprofit anymore, so I decided to take my website design experience and turn it into a business. I began working with nonprofits, small businesses and women entrepreneurs, helping them build websites that showcase their business and make them money.

My Philosophy

I strive to make the website design process as simple as possible, helping my clients simplify everything. My goal is to make sure the website is strategic, but also beautiful. I like to infuse personality into my client’s websites to help them reach their ideal client.


That’s a little bit about my backstory and how I got to where I am today. I hope this helps you understand a bit more about why I do what I do. If you have any questions, please drop them in the comments and I look forward to continuing the conversation with you.
