WordPress Origin Story

After using Blogger for a year and wanting something more robust and with more creative control, I switched to WordPress in 2007 and never looked back. I currently have six different websites running on WordPress! (I may have a bit of a website creation obsession.) My husband, Lucas (@karpstrucking), is a WordPress developer.

In July 2015, I attended my first Wordcamp in Columbus, OH. It was inspiring! I was blown away by the WordPress community and inspired by @andrea_r’s keynote about there being a place for everyone in it. With my teaching background, I see myself becoming a member of the WordPress Docs and/or Training community and am ready to get started helping wherever I can!
