Bio

I am a tenured digital marketer with experience in helping small-to-midsize businesses and enterprise organizations. I began using WordPress for developing websites in 2010 and have never looked back. From the plug-ins to the variety of themes available and being able to develop on an SEO-friendly framework, I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to use WordPress.

In 2019, I left a company of 7 years to start my own agency where I help local businesses get found online through SEO, pay-per-click and product listing ads. If clients are not already using WordPress as their content management system, I work to migrate them over to the platform.

Interests

Anything outdoors, dogs, movies, live music.

WordPress Origin Story

I built my first WordPress site for an auto insurance agent working for Farmer’s Insurance. The client wanted a custom built site where he could showcase his work, testimonials and the services he offered. Farmer’s corporate site was limited on exposing independent agents, so having a custom-built site was a must-have.

I developed his site using WordPress on one of the earlier themes available from Theme Forest, added a handful of useful plug-ins for SEO, contact forms and Google Maps, and the client was thrilled with the site. He was able to appropriately direct traffic to his site instead of the main Farmer’s corporate site and was proud to let me know business was great.

Developing his site started me down the path of working on WordPress for over 10 years and I still recommended the platform to this day.
