Quintin-Gilman-ProfileI was a bit hesitant to design a new website as I didn’t know what I wanted and kept putting it off. Denise got in touch with me and convinced me to just do it and I am glad I did. From the beginning to the end of the whole process she was very professional, courteous, timeous and very patient with me. In the end I had a beautiful website that was exactly how I pictured it and she equipped me with the skills on how to use it effectively to grow my business. I highly recommend her to anyone, you wont be disappointed.

lynne-wright-headerDenise designed my original website in about 2008. She recently assisted me with my online strategy, changing and updating my website and linking it to Facebook and LinkedIn. She also set me up on Mailchimp for an email newsletter. Denise really listens to what you want your website to look like, but also ensures that it is technologically relevant. She is patient, efficient and her pricing structure is very competitive. I highly recommend her work.
