Mild-mannered designer by day…
For each project I take on, I invest fully. Meaning I’m part of your team and communicate heavily with you. So you’ll never wonder what I’m doing or if we’re on target to complete the project. And because it’s just me, you don’t have to worry about if the whole team gets you and what you represent.
If nothing else, I hope you appreciate my direct and honest communication. I won’t see you something you don’t need and I’ll tell you if you’re being bamboozled.
I don’t actually think I’m a superhero.
I mean, many people have this notion that superheroes have genetic mutations and superpowers. Neither of which I have. Unless you count being a triplet as a genetic mutation 😉
What’s it like working with me?
Some things you’ll notice as we work together, I don’t sugarcoat anything for you. If there’s a concern, you’ll know about it and we, as a team, will find a solution.
I value diverse points of view and I expect the same from those whom I work with. If you’re a business that supports women, BIPOC, Trans and/or Gender Non-Conforming, and values diverse points of view, we’ll work very well together. If you cannot accept this, I cannot accept your money.
Additionally, my hope is that one day, web accessibility will be the rule, not the exception.
… Community builder by night
When not spending time with my husband and kiddo, you can usually find me in various communities across Portland, Oregon.
PDX Shopify Meetup
It was pretty surprising that Portland didn’t already have a Shopify meetup. So I created one. The goal is to meet like-minded e-commerce businesses that currently use or want to use Shopify as their platform.
All events are inclusive and free to attendees.
Portland Women In Technology
I frequent Portland Women in Technology meetups and volunteer with them regularly as their Director of Technology. I highly suggest you check them out. Their meetups are inclusive and open to all who support their mission.
About three times a year, I host Get Hired Up! An event that focuses on helping the community with resumes and interview prep for all types of jobs, not just technical in nature.
