While growing up, I was surrounded by what I now find to be two of my best qualities: creativity and focus. While the creativity allowed me to freely explore my mind and interests, I came to understand that focus is a driving force behind success. I was able to use these qualities in my first business as a graphic designer, where I got my first taste of owning and running my own business. Always keeping my eye on the next big thing, I began dabbling in website design and very quickly realized, however, that I was not able to ride the "internet wagon" on my own. Yes, I had the creative eye to design a compelling website - but I had absolutely no knowledge of how to build the functionalities that make a website useful.
Eventually teaming up with a start-up web company, I sharpened my skills as a project manager, overcame the "learning curve" of designing websites (graphic design and web design are very much two different things) and met Craig, now my business partner and husband!
We ventured off on our own, and in March of 2012 began the RI Web Gurus.
As we've grown together, my creative design, along with his extensive computer science skills, have come to serve many businesses. We've refined our approach over time, and found that our combined efforts provide something essential to every business -- a solutions-based website. All businesses have unique needs and are looking for ways to save time, money, and effort. By working with us, we cater to your specific needs and build around that, keeping in mind user experience, functionality and design. With a background in marketing as well, I work with you to find your most unique selling attributes to maximize your efforts online.
"We work with businesses (large and small) who need a website that will help them better run their business and sell their products or services."
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening, traveling, and spending time with the people that matter to me, most importantly our daughter!
