About

I got my start in building websites when I worked for Squarespace in Portland, OR as a customer care representative. I answered emails all day! It was a great experience and made me decide to go back to school to learn more about web development. I graduated from MCTC in 2017 and soon after started a job at a Minneapolis Ad Agency. While in school and working full time, I always maintained a roster of freelance clients. I loved the flexibility and challenge of taking on side projects and after 14 months working at the agency, I took off and now freelance full time.


I love working on projects of all sizes. I can help you determine what you need to change on your existing website, build you a new one from scratch, or help you simply update what you have going on.


I specialize in WordPress and Squarespace as well as Mailchimp and custom emails. Let’s work together!

Experience

 

Freelance Web Developer

As a web developer, I work with clients to design, redesign and develop websites using content managing systems such as Squarespace and WordPress. I thoroughly enjoy creating web content and working to organize site structure while paying close attention to user experience. My favorite projects are re-platforming old, outdated sites and giving them new life. I always spend time providing clients with the proper training to update and manage their online presence in the most efficient way.

At Squarespace, I worked with users of the platform to troubleshoot issues and answer general how-to questions. I did this with effective and prompt email communication and problem solving. This job also resulted in an extensive knowledge of the Squarespace platform and templates which inspired me to go back to school to learn more about web development and building custom websites.
