I’ve worked with Deb on several Digital Analytics and Web Development projects. It’s an absolute pleasure working with her. Her attention to detail and time management is fantastic.

Stephen Barnett

Front-End Developer

I worked with Deb on a rebuild of the WordPress-powered web site for a local NGO, Rape Crisis. She was in charge of the PHP side of things for the Theme template files, and setting up the data structure for areas of the site that use Custom Fields to extend the core functionality. She was eager to learn the things that she didn’t already know, and quick to implement the things that she did. The end result of the project was a much faster and lighter site for their users, and a more flexible, but robust, way of updating the site for Rape Crisis staff.

Thank you for all your hard work and patience  – for understanding, and producing, exactly what I knew I wanted but didn’t know yet.

I am thrilled with the final product, and look forward to working with you on future projects.
