Oh, Hello.

Welcome to my digital portfolio. Out of Kansas City, I’m a jane-of-all-trades graphic / web designer, avid painter, & self-admitted WordPress addict with a penchant for spotting typos. I work at a lovely little place called Blue Rivet & enjoy short-legged dogs.

Getting your messages across beautifully & effectively.

WordPress Development


I’ll build your website & teach you how to maintain it 🙂

If you have a business, your website is a vital element; many potential customers first impressions are your website. But running a business is a lot of work- adding website maintenance to your list of tasks can be a burden. I can help with that. Contact me to discuss pricing & details for my help maintaining your company website.

You know the styling you want, but just can’t quite get it. If you’re building your own website, or have an existing site that just needs a few tweaks you can’t figure out- no worries. I can help with that.

In an hour or two, I can add to your WordPress site security. Hackers & malware can turn up anywhere, & I’ve seen just about it all.

WordPress has occasionally gotten a bad wrap over the years concerning page loading time. Sometimes themes or too many plugins can bloat your site & cause long loading times. But have no fear! There are tricks that can be implemented to change that dramatically.
