About Cheryl V.

I'm a graphic designer and I teach WordPress in a way that incorporates SEO, my background in digital marketing, social media as well as my artistic and design strategies.

Teaching since 2009.
My clients are typically small business owners and that's great because as a driven entrepreneur myself, we speak the same language. I share all the goodies I've learned over the years as well as teach you what you need to know about WordPress.

I have startup, corporate, association and small business experience.

IMPORTANT - When getting in touch
Please give me an idea of where you need help. Plugins, installation, navigating a theme, getting started, etc.
If there is a website you need help with, please provide URL.

Absolutely Amazing!!! She was very helpful and provided great information and knowledge. If she did not know the answer directly, she would provide resources and assistance that helped during the session to resolve the question and resources for future questions. I would definitely recommend her and also use her services again.

Very helpful! Cheryl provided several SEO tips regarding my images which helped me decrease my load times on my pages and we also added keyword image titles to help search engines find me, along with several other tips and adjustments along the way to take away some of the WordPress mystery. Excellent :-}

Cheryl provided me a great Introductory lesson. I had some limited experience with WordPress and she helped fill in big gaps for me. She is an easy going person with a friendly no pressure approach to teaching. Her recommendations for me to consider for my site were on point and appreciated. I will be scheduling more time with Cheryl.

Cheryl provided a great learning experience about WordPress. I was not familiar with the program at all until I went to a workshop she presented at. Cheryl did not present the information in terms that were overly technical, making it easy to understand. Cheryl is definitely well versed in this topic and was very helpful in answering questions after the workshop. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to learn more about WordPress

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 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.
