My mission is to create beautiful online experiences for passionate business owners. I build websites and provide email marketing for local businesses who want to level up their online presence. I then educate and empower business owners with the tools they need to maintain and grow their online presence to further their business goals.

I became interested in web design as a teen and taught myself to code. Back then there weren’t as many opportunities to learn coding skills so it required a lot of patience and trial-and-error. I not only learned how to code, but I learned how to teach myself and solve problems, two key skills that would come in mighty handy later as a freelancer.

Originally from Chapel Hill, NC, I’m a UNC Asheville graduate with a degree in Multimedia. From 2014-2016 I served as lead organizer of WordCamp Asheville and continue to be involved in the planning each year with an amazing group of fellow web geeks. I love meeting other web professionals in the area and giving back to the community. You might find me at our local WordPress meetup group or volunteering with the Literacy Council.

I believe it’s important to experience what the world has to offer, which means peeling away from the computer now and then. I enjoy hiking and traveling with my husband, working in my garden, reading science fiction, and the good eats of Asheville, North Carolina.
