What I Do

Web consulting —

  • Design your custom website — reflect your small business, organization, or personal needs for an Internet presence.

  • Develop your website — create new pages with your content, upgrade or convert your code (for example, from FrontPage to Expression Web), and implement changes for search engine optimization (SEO).

  • Maintain your content — get fast (usually within a day or two) updates to your text and pictures.

  • Train / teach / coach — learn to update your Web pages yourself.

If you want to manage your website by yourself, I can help you learn how. If you'd rather have someone else do it, I am happy to assist. I'm an independent Web consultant — responsive, helpful, and willing to collaborate on your website. If you need a website designer, website developer, or website coach, contact me to discuss your situation or read more about the Services I offer.

Upcoming Classes

In addition to individual coaching for clients, I teach web-focused, not-for-credit classes through Sierra College Community Education. These are short classes (3-6 hours) intended to give students enough familiarity to facilitate further learning on their own.

Fall 2014 classes are:

Wanting to improve the look and usability of her website, this client contacted me to see what we could do. After discussing options, we agreed on using WordPress.org as a platform. We worked together on a custom design and added the appropriate plugins to allow for static information such as services, and for dynamic information such as recipes that take advantage of WordPress blogging capabilities.

Once the site was designed and some of the pages built out, I coached my client on how to use WordPress to maintain the content on her site in the future. With some additional instruction and practice, she is self-sufficient now.
