When I was going to school for web design, I wasn’t sure where exactly it would go. I changed my major about 5 times in the course of my college career and didn’t have much direction. I love so many different things, how could I choose?! Deciding on web design was clearly the best choice, and since that time I’ve loved everything about it.
My first official web design job was interning for a company that was 20 years old and still stuck in the 1990s world of web design. Not only that, but it was owned by a man that I didn’t quite see eye-to-eye with. I had all these great ideas for modernizing the business…but they were all ignored. Every. Single. One.
Luckily my next job in web design was with a great company that’s owned and operated by amazing women! (With the exception of the owner’s husband and son.) I loved the atmosphere and the example that the owner of the business was to me of what a powerful female entrepreneur should be. I wanted to be like that.
Once I was finished there, I decided to start my own web design business. I followed the example of her and many others and that has gotten me where I am today. I’ve worked with many different types of people and companies over the years, but what I love most is working with amazing women and helping them live their dreams.
Now I focus on website designs for fellow female business owners, photographers, and bloggers. It’s amazing and I love what I do so much! I still create websites for all types of people and businesses through my husband’s company Macklin Media, but here at The Creative Ruby I focus on empowering women to reach their goals.
So welcome to TCR, where I design websites for women who run the world.
