In a nutshell, I'm a creative human being and a multi-passionate entrepreneur.

When I couldn’t decide on a single niche, I decided to work on more than one. (Shh… don’t tell my business coach 😉)

I love to work with smart, creative, inspiring people to build an online presence that helps them shine.

You’ll often hear me talk about business strategy because above all, I live for the freedom to live on my own terms, finding success in doing what I love.

When I’m not at my desk creating fab websites, I can be found outside exploring the world and taking photos. I am truly passionate about photography because it allows me to express my creativity and… pretty pictures make people happy!

I also love travel, nature, yoga and slow + healthy living. My favourite adventures are the ones taken alongside my hubby, James. ❤

 
 

My favourite quote of all time:

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

On Squarespace…

 
 

When I first tried Squarespace, it was love at first sight.

 

During my 7 years of running an online business, I experimented with a few different drag and drop type website builders. They were usually easy to learn, but it didn’t take long before I felt limited by what I could do with them. At one point, I wanted more options, so I switched to WordPress. 

There was a huge learning curve involved in mastering WordPress, but I was determined. I studied it relentlessly so I could use it comfortably and be able to update my website as often as needed. 

Until finally, I just couldn't take it anymore. I started to realize that being on WordPress was way too frustrating. First of all, it was very difficult to learn in the first place. And even after I learned a ton, there was still the issue of speed and difficulty of maintenance. My website was ridiculously slow no matter what I did to try to speed it up. Anytime I needed to make a simple update, it would take me forever to get it done because either it was difficult or took way too long to finalize. Did I mention your website can easily get hacked on WordPress if you don't constantly update those millions of plugins? Yup, scary + annoying! 

I came to a point where I said, there has got to be a better way! And that's when a lovely friend of mine said, "I love Squarespace, why don't you try it?" I was desperate, so I said, "I will!"

And just like that, my first love for a website building platform began. I fell in love head over heels with Squarespace. I mean, who wouldn't love an easy, uncomplicated, co-operative, flexible, secure and beautiful tool like this? Plus, I was wonderfully surprised to find out that it was a lot more customizable that I had expected! (And no, they don't pay me to say that!)

I enjoyed the process of using Squarespace so much that I decided to make it my designated platform for creating websites for all my clients.

Nowadays, I get to work with amazing business owners and make their lives easier too!
