“We recently relaunched our website with a highly customized WordPress site and needed someone to help us fast track our training on how to use and maintain it ourselves. Alison has been wonderful in teaching us what we needed to know and then some! She helped us understand why things were done certain ways and how to change them if need be. She has offered suggestions for hosting and how it may solve some of our other issues. We love how she took the time to learn our new site before starting to train us. When the time comes, we’ll be calling on her again!”

“We contracted Alison to provide one-on-one, in-house WordPress training for our office staff. She began by thoroughly examining our site and creating a customized training curriculum. Using her vast knowledge and can-do attitude, Alison made the learning process relevant and fun and she also produced customized training videos to reinforce learning and ensure a training succession plan. We are so impressed with her organization, knowledge, and attitude that we are continuing to utilize her expertise to guide our staff as we make specific improvements to our website.”

Hannah testimonialI reached out to Alison because I was getting frustrated with editing WordPress content. Within a few screenshots we were able to determine that I needed to edit back-end code. With her help the site was up, running, and doing what I wanted.
