My goal is to help you beautify and improve the function, the flow and the security of your WordPress blog on the Genesis framework. Book your free phone consultation…we’ll chit chat about your short and long term blogging goals and discuss how I can help you optimize your WordPress site!

creativity is Intelligencehaving fun

I’ve been an IT security consultant for many years, and my husband and I ran our own brand identity and web design business, which we later sold. I love to set up new blogs, but can also transfer WordPress themes on the Genesis framework. I have the capability to set up very specialized functions on your site such as:

* Security & Plugin Audits * Speed Optimization * Setting up newsletters & workflows associated w/ Mailchimp * Subscriber Opt-In and Pop Ups * Free Printable Offerings  * Restricting content from RSS feeds * Members-only site access * User generated content (readers uploading projects directly to my site) * Forms with clickable options / menus with $$ tally sheets * eCommerce knowledge * Affiliate Marketing Ideas / Setting up shops * Heat mapping * Site tweaks based on user behavior
Email me if there is a specific function you are looking for. Learn more about my design process & terms of service
