My Journey: From Hobby to Web Designer
Web design wasn’t always my bread and butter! Back in the day, I was all about blogging, photography, and being a mom. I was even knee-deep in a Business Management degree and working in Human Resources. But you know what caught my eye? Web design! Every time I got to update our company’s job board or tinker with my blog’s HTML and CSS, I felt a spark. So, I made a bold move, switched majors to IT/Visual Communications, and never looked back. Sure, it set me back a year, and, being a single mom, it was a hard choice. But let me tell you…it was the best decision ever!
Once I had my Bachelor of Science in IT/Visual Communications in 2008, I took a big jump into the web design world and said goodbye to HR. I polished my web design skills with a financial services company (I probably created a hundred credit union websites in my first 3 years). And then landed back at the UoU HR Department as the department’s web designer! The whole time I was creating WordPress blogs and sites on the side and even worked parttime for a couple of years until Bellano Web Studio was ready to be my full-time gig in 2014! It hasn’t always been easy but it has always been worth it!
My designs have found homes worldwide—from Australia to Europe and all over North America. Whether you’re a budding blogger, a small business owner, or a globe-trotter with a story to tell, chances are, I’ve worked with someone like you. Don’t just take my word for it; check out my client testimonials! I’m also super proud to be a Flywheel Agency Partner and to be featured in the Kadence Marketplace. It’s all about building strong partnerships that add value to what I can offer you.
So there it is a little bit about me and my journey. Now, how about we start on yours? 😊
