About

ABOUT MY WORK

I’m a digital strategist with two decades of experience designing and coding for the web. I’m focused on guiding purpose-driven personality brands in creating flourishing lives and online spaces. My strengths are intuitive design, responsive development, and kindly telling you how you’re getting in your own way.

I’m not an MBA, a social media guru, or a buzzword-anything. But I do know a thing or two about making a living with an online business. And I believe that a strategic web needs a little — no, a lot more heart.

I’m not that into business as usual. I want more than that for myself — and for you, too. I genuinely believe that we can have it all – flourishing businesses, work-life balance, and a life that makes us excited to get up in the morning.

I founded my first WordPress design business on July 16th, 2009, and that business has evolved into the one you see now.

In the past twelve years, I’ve helped more than 250 small business owners up-level their online spaces.

I’ve worked with clients like NBC Sports, The National Society for Collegiate Scholars, and Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation — but my true love is personal brand identity & digital strategy. These days I work almost exclusively with creative professionals, and woman-owned personality brands and small businesses.

ABOUT ME

I like to say I have a scientist’s mind and an artist’s heart.

I am a solo mama to a little boy called Day, who was born in March of 2020. We live in a tiny, Stars Hollow-esque town in Maine, with a french bulldog puppy named Audio, two mischievous cats, Colleen and Greta, a foster bunny named Blix, and two chinchillas, Specter and Spirit.

My passions (outside of making the internet gorgeous and effective) include mixed media + textile art, writing, reading, powerlifting, and photography. I take photos with a Fujifilm XT-20, Canon 60D, or (most often) my iPhone.

I’m an outgoing but highly-sensitive INFJ. I enjoy yoga and green smoothies, but you’ll rarely see me turn down a french fry or a glass of red wine. I like my home to be filled with people, plants, and animals, and I’ll do anything I possibly can to brighten your day, even if I barely know you.

In Memoriam

For nine years, R.T. was my partner-in-all-things. He helped run both of my former businesses, SixteenJuly and Website Refinery. Many of you worked with him directly, so know how helpful, kind, and conscientious he was.

R.T. passed away unexpectedly the morning of July 16th, 2020, due to a previously undiagnosed heart condition.

He was a dedicated friend, a talented musician, a wonderful husband, and the sweetest papa to our little one in the first months of his life. He was loyal, loving, charmingly ornery, and hilarious. He was my best friend, my greatest love, my steadiest companion. I am endlessly grateful for the time we had together, though it could never have been enough.

We'll miss you forever.
