Featured Client


After taking my adult education class on website marketing in 2011, this client (a small business owner who produces energy reports for builders seeking compliance with California's Title 24 regulations) asked me to update her website's design and streamline the code.

As needed, I do the maintenance for this client — adding new articles about energy standards and compliance, for example. When a new article is added, I update information about that article to generate the article index page. Because the code was streamlined, I can do these updates quickly and easily.

About a year ago, I updated the website design again to pass Google's "mobile-friendly" test and to make it easier to see the information on smaller devices.
