Me1985croppedHi, I’m Babs and this is me, aged 12, with my very first computer – an Amstrad 6128 with colour monitor and built-in 3.5″ floppy disc drive. That computer was my pride and joy for many years!

Ever since receiving that first computer for Christmas 1985, I’ve been a bit of a geek! Between Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve I’d taught myself to code and wrote my first program to welcome in 1986 on the stroke of midnight.

Since 2001 I have been developing websites for my own interests; and for family, friends and on personal recommendation. I started initially by developing sites using FrontPage with custom HTML coding, but things have moved on quite a bit since then! I now develop my sites using WordPress CMS which is hugely flexible and customisable, yet robust enough to meet the needs of most businesses. However, don’t worry … although I still have my old Amstrad 6128, I now use my new pride and joy – my 27″ iMac – for work!

IMG_6957I also have over a decade experience as a business consultant. I started as (what else?!) a professional coder, then worked my way up the ranks to a senior consultant, working for some of the world’s largest organisations on projects that took me around the globe. This means that I can bring more to your website development and social media management than many other consultants. I can help drive your business strategy at every turn and also ensure your business needs are met alongside your technical ones!

In March 2015 I was approached by the wonderful people at Elegant Themes and asked to write a piece for their “Customer Spotlight” blog about my career path and my WordPress career. The article – “My Wonderful WordPress Life” – was published on the 29th March 2015 and gives a good overview of my past and present careers, work ethic, and why I love what I do.

If you want to find out more about me , why not have a look at my portfolio which showcases a sample of my recent work, or contact me to discuss how I can add value to your business.
