Hi there 👋 I'm Heather!

A year ago, I was working for a Non-Profit, and our website needed to be re-created, I took on the challenge without any knowledge of web design or development. None. Nada. Zilch. Was it easy? Sometimes. It would have been easier had I known what I did at the end of the project though…lol. Was it worth it? Absolutely yes!

So, I know what it feels like to spend hours researching and learning the ins and outs of a new tool that you may not end up not using. I don't want anyone else to go through this struggle, which is why with my free website, I am going help people get ahead faster! Plus when building this site, it was also an opportunity for me to push myself creatively by creating content and trying to design!

Good luck!
