Since pre-school I’ve been a voracious reader and an autodidact. I earned a BA in English education (with a minor in physical science) from Western Illinois University, as well as a MA in English literature from the State University of New York at Cortland. For eight years I taught junior high and high school students in the areas of English, chemistry, physics, and physical science. Most days I loved it.
I stopped teaching after my first child was born. Six years into motherhood (of both the biological and adoptive varieties), I began managing my own, and others’, WordPress sites.
Since then, there’s never been a time when I wasn’t elbows-deep in multiple sites per day. My clients range from authors and photographers to inventors, activists, sexworkers, consultants, small-business owners, and attorneys. I’ve collaborated on projects with people from coast to coast as well as in Canada, Europe, Africa, and Australia.1 I also teach classes in WordPress at Heartland Community College. Over the course of four short weeks my students go from nothing to a completely functional website.
When I’m not working on someone’s website (and sometimes also when I am), I attempt to herd three children and two cats, shop for groceries, and keep up with the laundry. My free time is spent reading, lifting weights, cooking delicious plant-based meals, and engaging in a never-ending rewatch cycle of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I truly believe I have the best clients and students in the world. Every day I feel extraordinary gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of making their goals a reality.
Have a question? Need some WordPress help? I’m only an email away.
