Web Developer

I am an enthusiastic web developer who would love to help build or improve your website. My background as a small-business owner for 5 years provides me with a unique skill-set covering everything from online marketing and UI/UX design to customer service and human resources. When I'm not obsessing over a project, I am painting, reading, or enjoying a good, old-fashioned walk. I look forward to helping your company provide your users with a simple, exceptional experience.

Apton Biosystems

I converted XD designs into a functioning website for this biosystems company, including video backgrounds on the homepage, entrance animations, and other custom CSS work. I also did quite a bit of back-end work troubleshooting DNS records to point their domain from their old site to the new site.

The Millionaire Next Door

I was tasked with modernizing and speeding up this Wordpress site for the bestselling book The Millionaire Next Door and their other publications. I built a staging site and then migrated it over to the live site once everything was completed.

Holistic Chef

This client had an old Wix site that just didn't have the flexibility that she wanted, so I converted the site to Wordpress, added features such as a booking calendar and a WooCommerce shop, and made further optimizations to the site.

Lindberg Auto

I built this auto repair shop Wordpress site from very specific XD designs. The slideshow and overlapping diagonal boxes on several pages were a challenge to make responsive, but I got as close as I could to the original designs.

Alchemco

This waterproofing chemical company needed to restructure their Wordpress site from several separate subdomains to one unified site, so I was tasked with rebuilding the pages and sub-pages with Elementor, linking the new structure together, then optimizing for speed.

Kids Card Club

I was brought on to create a Wordpress site for this card collecting membership startup. I started with some pictures and a general idea of the pages we'd need, and I built it from there. I used MemberPress to create three plan tiers.

Asheboro Traffic Law

This law firm had an existing site that hadn't been redesigned in years, so I was brought on to transform the new XD designs into a functioning website. I did that completely from scratch, only using the designs and the text content from the previous website.

My task was to give the homepage of this mental health initiative a quick makeover before they launched their yearly event. The colors they wanted were a challenge to work with, but I think the result matched their desires.

Masterminds Tutoring

The website I designed for my tutoring company, which I ran for 5 years. It was originally on Wordpress, but I wanted more customization, so I recreated the site using HTML/CSS/PHP/Javascript. I was constantly tweaking the flow of the site based on customer feedback so it was as easy to use as possible.

Hunter Johnson Inc.

A real estate investor wanted me to build a website for him on Wix from scratch. He didn't give me much specific direction, just that he wanted it to look professional, clean, and feature a large picture slideshow of houses.
