I'm a graphic designer and a Wordpress site builder who loves to create beautiful things.
I believe every entrepreneur should have a beautiful website.
Beautiful websites are expensive.
So build your own, with me.

I've been building wordpress websites since 2009. My clients are entrepreneurs. My students benefit from my design, corporate, association and small business experiences.

If you want a website that is going to convert visitors into actual sales for your service or product based business, let's talk about how I can help you with that.

If you want to build a website for yourself that looks professional rather than homemade, I can help you with that.

Get help with selecting the right keywords to draw people to your site.

Maybe you're missing information that is relevant to your customers' decision making process, let me take you through a site audit.

Perhaps people are not finding what they're looking for on your site or you need help with photos, design or layout, I can help with that as well.

If you're trying to figure out Woocommerce, calendars, plugins, backups or analytics, then definitely get in touch.

Just complete a brief needs assessment questionnaire to ensure you learn what you need. I offer an easy to follow, customized WordPress guide upon completion of our time together.

I hesitated for only a moment before giving Cheryl a "Best Instructor Ever" rating because I taught computer applications for over 20 years ;-)
However, Cheryl's knowledge and enthusiasm are infectious and I had to be honest. She is tirelessly devoted to providing her clients with the best service she has to offer (which is the best!) and uniquely insightful and creative when it comes to not only meeting, but surpassing their wildest expectations.

Cheryl makes learning fun! She is knowledgeable, professional, and engaging. From beginners to advance learners, Cheryl will help you design the website that you never knew you could build yourself. Cheryl loves what she does and you will, too.

Cheryl really knows her stuff when it comes to not only Wordpress but web design itself. Nowadays anyone can pop up a quick (not very good) website but if you want to know how to do it RIGHT then Cheryl will show you how.
