Website Design & Development
I am not accepting new clients at this time.

Wanting to improve the look and usability of her website, Darla (a personal trainer) contacted me in 2014 to see what we could do. After discussing options, we agreed on using WordPress.org as a platform because she has an active blog. 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 Darla on how to use WordPress to maintain the content on her site in the future. In 2020, Darla updated the look and feel of her blog (hosted on Blogger) to better match the website.
We keep in touch when questions arise, such as how to improve search-engine rankings (SEO) or how to update her WordPress website.
