Objective:

To assist clients in increasing their business through the development of attractive, engaging, and informative websites.

Journey:

Creating websites has been a hobby for over 14 years: including sites for a diving committee in Bahrain, a Bridal Store in Texas, an Elk Ranch in South Dakota, and my classroom. Teaching abroad has been a fantastic experience where I have delighted in using my resourcefulness and creativity to captivate my students. Excellent communication skills as well as an ability to engage, and enthuse are central to my success both in my classroom and on the web. The dual emphasis of design and marketing in my education has given me the foundation for my work in both teaching and web development.
