I love web development. These days websites often make the first impression consumers have when they view a business. They provide information like product details, operating hours and store locations that allow consumers to make educated decisions when purchasing goods. They can also have e-commerce capabilities which can level the playing field for small and large businesses alike. Taking my design and marketing background and extending it into web development has allowed me to design websites that do everything mentioned above but also solve problems and position a business for growth. Below are examples of websites I have developed throughout my career.

Updating The Kirby Company website was my number one priority when I first. Their e-commerce presence was lacking, had no distributor search mechanism, and didn’t position the brand properly. I first made sure the host was set up properly.

I synced these distributor’s locations with Google Maps allowing visitors to easily search for their local Kirby distributor. Our team took new product images and redesigned the shopping experience to optimize for mobile. This project pushed my SEO skills to the test as I studied every single headline, alt tag, page title to increase traffic and conversions.

AppEase Producer was a start up company that sold software designed by insurance producers FOR insurance producers. The idea was straight forward with minimal bells or whistles.
