Helping you successfully scale your business by taking on the technical pieces. Focus on connection and not the tech.

Nice to meet you!

I'm Karen, originally from Los Angeles, CA I now reside in the beautiful state of Washington.

After earning my degree in business I went into management focusing on sales and operations for 10 years. In 2009, is when I entered the world of blogging and first came across WordPress. I must admit I broke my site a few times (my first experience with the white screen of death) but I pressed forward. Even though I was new to blogging and WordPress at the time, the world of web design & development wasn't new to me. In fact my first website project was my high schools website back in 2000.

Eventually as my little blog grew and I had my fair share of themes, it was evident that I like playing around and customizing features to make my site my own.  In addition to tweaking my site I fell in love strategy because I was into content marketing. Which is still one of my fav's till this day. Wanting to up my skills I eventually enrolled in some courses to learn Visual & Web design, then it was onto web development. I focused primarily on frontend but also picked up some backend languages such as PHP & Ruby.

Needless to say the rest was history, now I pull my skills from not only operations management background but my tech skills to help business owners create custom websites and business solutions that are reflective of their goals.
