For over a decade I have been using SquareSpace, Weebly, Wix and Wordpress to build user-friendly websites. I work closely with clients to produce sites that are easy to manage, mobile optimized and match their business strategy. I train my clients how to maintain their own site and give them the confidence to continue it on their own. Once an organizational system and web design is in place, managing it is a breeze.

We also transitioned the email and donor management systems to more user-friendly tools integrated with the new site.
