I have many years of experience working with websites. I currently primarily use WIX because clients appreciate the user-friendly interface for updates. I'm also familiar with Squarespace, WordPress, Google Sites, and DreamWeaver. Website design combines two of the things I love most... organizing information, and visual puzzle-solving.

Come & Get It On-Farm Food Events
This is the third Wix website I've built for Renewing the Countryside...strengthening rural areas by championing and supporting rural communities through sustainable and innovative initiatives. This particular project is centered in MN and is focused on increasing visibility and community engagement for rural farmers. This is exactly where my interests lie at the moment. Working with the Come & Get It team to organize their message and then craft their look was an absolute joy.
This fabulous community-building organization needed a new website. Soil Sisters has deep roots in collaboration— sharing their experiences and learning with each other to support sustainable agriculture and rural living. Working on this project with them was inspiring and in alignment with my values in many ways. I'm so grateful when my work feels this rewarding!

Farmland Access Hub
The Farmland Access Hub is a large network of agricultural organizations, policymakers, advocates, and service providers who are working together to solve the issue of land access. They serve both land seekers and land owners. Their website holds a complicated body of information needing be presented in a way that is welcoming, clear, and digestible. I love this type of challenge.
Working in support of local folks who raise/grow/forage our food has been my hope for the last ten years or so. I'm grateful to the Hub for being part of making that happen, and the great work they're doing.
Here Now to Help
Ron Welsch, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, needed support with his digital presence. I built him a new website using WIX. The work included editing all of the content and reorganizing it for better flow, providing a portrait photo session, curating thematic photos, and establishing a new email. Facebook accounts were also updated to support the look and feel of the new website and to hold consistent messaging. Ongoing work will include keeping a social media schedule while editing/curating/posting blogs and FB posts.
Taking a mountain of information, and helping to organize it, is some of my favorite work... and Ron helps make the work more fun & interesting!
Deana Downs Healing Arts
I'm a so happy to be working with Deana to help communicate her many talents. I helped to bring her outdated Wix website up-to-speed– a new template and design, incorporating her new logo (which I designed) and her own photography, and honing the copy and site's flow. I'm excited to also look at how Deana can connect more through social media and blogging.
Spring Hill Community Farm
Designed and maintained three iterations of their website. The latest website is in Squarespace, where Mike and Patty felt they'd be best able to manage e-commerce. Previous version was in WordPress, and the first version was in DreamWeaver.
University of Florida Center for Spirituality and Health (UFCSH)
Brought outdated website design into latest Wordpress Apollo 2 theme, which had been customized by UF to meet their needs. Worked alongside a UF support specialist, web services specialists, and two UFCSH advisors. Edited content for relevancy, consistency of tone and presentation. Researched/created additional content for improved relevancy. It was a joy working with this team! I'll be continuing with updates to this site and hope to work on similar projects with other departments at UF.
