You can have a website you're confident in and proud of.
Hi, my name is Jenn. I'm a web developer and user experience designer with a passion for helping people achieve their goals. I'm dedicated to helping mission-driven business owners like you build a website that shares your message, showcases your work, and reflects your brand.
I make the process of building a website easy for you.
If you need a new website or custom-built application, then you already know it’s vital to partner with somebody who has the technical skills to build it. But those technical skills are only half the equation. I have a decade of experience developing websites and apps, but before that I was a high school teacher. I’ve found that the “soft” skills I cultivated from my years of experience teaching play a vital role in building effective websites.
You can expect me to:
Ask smart questions to get to know you and your business
Listen thoughtfully to your answers
Come prepared to every meeting with a clear, well-communicated agenda
Be knowledgeable and proficient in the technical skills that go into building a website
Follow best practices connected to UX, ADA accessibility, SEO and web development standards
Communicate clearly throughout the process of building your site, with a reliable timeline and checkpoints along the way
“Jenn recently built our new website from the ground up. She is not only talented, but is also extremely organized, communicates in a timely manner, and is down to earth. Building a website can be stressful, but she made the process smooth. Out of the 4 website redesigns I have been part of over the years, our website we built with her has been the most fun and enjoyable. I would highly recommend working with Jenn!”
“I was so relieved to be able to work with Jenn. Jenn was professional, quick, and responsive. She had industry insights that wouldn’t have occurred to me, even though I consider myself pretty tech-savvy. She heard and incorporated my feedback and answered my questions about behind-the-scenes stuff. I’ve gotten so many compliments about my new site. Highly recommend working with Jenn!”
“For two years, making my website nagged at me on my to-do list. I didn’t know where to start and felt overwhelmed, so I kept putting it off. Jenn offered the structure and support I needed to finally get the project done. Her expert guidance on how to present my material and on the technical aspects of launching and maintaining a website were exactly what I needed!”
What makes a website great?
Before we talk about the technical side of building a website, let’s focus on the human-centered aspects of an excellent website.
An effective website needs to meet the following human-centered needs:
A beautiful design that’s easy to navigate and drives visitors to contact you
Written copy that showcases your expertise and tells your story
Captivating images and layout that draws viewers in and enhance your professionalism
An easy-to-use backend that allows you to efficiently update your content whenever you need to
A great website must also have a solid technical foundation:
Correct meta tags and settings to support great SEO and make it easy for people to find you on Google
ADA compliance so people who rely on screen readers and other assistive technology can easily navigate your website
Responsive design that works on phones, tablets and computers
Fast loading speed
Information architecture that meets modern standards for readability and SEO
