I have been designing websites since I first logged on to the internet in 1995. Like others, I started with Microsoft FrontPage (yikes!). It wasn’t long before I felt the need to actually learn how to code rather than using a WYSIWYG editor so I began downloading everything I could find on the Internet with regard to HTML.
In 2000, I designed a website for my ecommerce business. Being introduced to PHP and MySQL for the first time was quite difficult but I managed to teach myself along the way. In the years that followed, I gained extensive knowledge with XHTML and CSS. In 2008, I stumbled upon WordPress. And I’ve been in love ever since.
I have worked on several websites since 1995, some for myself and others for friends. I have taught myself practically everything I know on web design and have a library of books to prove it! In December 2005, while being a stay at home mom, I decided to enroll at the University of Phoenix. In April of 2008, just after the birth of my second child, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and Visual Communication. Completing a degree in an online setting forced me to focus on deadlines, be highly organized and self-motivated, and work with no supervision.
Fast forward to today. You’ve stumbled across my latest adventure in web design. I’m glad you’re here.
