I love creating custom WordPress websites. I feel blessed to be able to have my own business doing something that doesn’t feel like work.

I particularly enjoy working with other moms and women solopreneurs. As a  solo mompreneur myself, I know the joys and frustrations you experience daily. Our common experiences give me a unique understanding of what you need.

I have a special knack for finding solutions for client’s problems.  Need eCommerce capabilities?  No problem.  Want rotating images on your front page that you can link to any place you choose?  That can be done.  Need a form for visitors to sign up through to receive more information about your products or services? You got it.  Whatever your needs, I will search until I find the answer to your problem.

I am so excited to be a part of the design team for Berries & Cream.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and a Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA). I spent years in the corporate world, doing budget work, software analysis, software training and was the Chief Financial Officer for an organization before I made the decision to leave the corporate world and focus on my growing family.

My dream was to use the degrees and experience that I have to be able to work from home. I am very blessed to have two young children and a wonderful husband and have the opportunity to work and help others from my home along the beautiful Gulf Coast.

It is my passion, to work with people (especially women) and help design an online showcase for their passions and dreams…whether it is a small business, entrepreneurial endeavor or a website to showcase their family or organization. I have a good understanding of how small businesses operate and their design and development needs.

It gives me great joy to be a part of this process and to create beautiful custom blog designs. It is a pleasure to be a part of the Berries & Cream Blog Design team.

As a former corporate graphic designer and marketing coordinator, I know the stress that comes from trying to create an online presence for yourself and your company that stands out from the crowd. And as a blog writer myself, I know how difficult it can be to focus on your content when you’re trying to get the design and layout of your site the way you want it.

I’ve always enjoyed creating, from magazine collages when I was a child to website and print design as an adult. I love taking people’s visions and ideas and transforming it into a completed custom blog design.

I’m thrilled to be working with Berries and Cream Blog Design doing just that.

First, as part of the design team for Berries & Cream, thanks for checking us out!

I enjoy the opportunity to learn about the stories behind a business like yours, how you got started, where you’re looking to take your idea, and how you’re looking to execute it. I also enjoy the chance to point someone like you in the right direction, should that be needed.

When I’m working on a web design project, I’m not looking to have the end result be something that is only all looks. I work to ensure that it also has a definite PURPOSE. Because the last thing I want to do, is give you a website that doesn’t give you results.

What do I bring to the table? A mechanic’s stubbornness, a teacher’s patience & desire to educate, a professional (yet friendly) attitude, and a sense of humor to boot. I also bring my experiences and insights as a small business owner. Because I get that you may be just starting out, and having someone working for you & with you that understands that is quite valuable.

I’m glad to have a part in building your dream, and enabling you to get where you’re looking to go!
