I have many smaller clients for whom I provide UX consulting services, WordPress development, or end-to-end website design and development. However, if you’re looking to finish a bigger project that requires skill sets outside my area of expertise, I work with an assortment of incredible partners and project manage the team to ensure the final product matches your goals, budget, and timeline.
