My likes: Space, coffee, kawaii stuff, being crafty, stationery, gold everything (I even have a gold printer), video games, rock concerts, Firefly. Typical outfit: jeans & a t-shirt, with flip flops or Converse…depending on the season.
I became a stay-at-home-mom in 2003 when our son was 1 year old. As if being a new mommy wasn’t enough, I felt like I needed to do more with my time. Since we used cloth diapers for our son, I decided to open an online cloth diaper shop. Having a graphic design background and doing much research and learning about HTML, I created my own online store. Other WAHMs (work-at-home-moms) noticed my work with the website and started asking me to design theirs as well.
Now, over 12 years and two kids later (two girls!), this business has enabled both my husband and myself to stay/work at home with our three children. Our son, now 14 years old, has high-functioning autism and we feel so lucky to be able to be here with him. I find that most of my clients are trying to do the same thing with their kids, which is one of the reasons why I enjoy doing this so much.
Why work with me?
Not only have I been doing web design professionally since April 2004, but I’ve designed websites for a hobby since 2000 and have literally designed hundreds and hundreds sites, the vast majority of them e-commerce sites for work-at-home-moms just like myself. In addition, I have started, operated, and then sold several online stores over the last 10 years so I know what you’re going through.
I have been a work at home mom (WAHM) since 2003. I absolutely love helping others start their businesses and succeed. This business is truly a dream in that it not only enables myself and my husband to stay home with our three children, but enables us to help other families in this same way.
With years of running online stores and a huge desire to find better solutions to make life easier and running a business more efficiently, I have tried and tested literally dozens of different e-commerce systems before deciding what to offer my clients. The shopping cart systems I work with not only have been found to be the best options for my clientele, but are also extremely user friendly.
I know budgets, timelines, and individual needs vary. That’s why I offer multiple options for getting your business off the ground with a clean and professional design. I won’t automatically try to sell you our largest plan or biggest package. I will recommend to you the best option for your needs, even if it’s something that I can’t provide and have to refer you elsewhere.
