I’m here to help you effortlessly maintain a healthier website, and to showcase the value in your offering.
I provide Care Plans to ensure your peace of mind by keeping your WordPress site safe, secure, up-to-date, and performing optimally. Regular backups, security scans, and uptime monitoring all contribute to a more robust site, and a better visitor experience.
I use my Much Ado About You!® methodology in collaboration with small business owners and solopreneurs to craft a compelling narrative that increases their engagement and sales through relevance, trust, and likability. I’m a fanatic about unearthing precisely the right words to tell your story.

In the mid-90’s, I was the lone female web designer surrounded by male “Webmasters.” I laughingly called myself the Web Diva®. It stuck.
Since 1998, the Web Diva® gig has provided a wealth of experience in helping clients tell compelling stories. Designing and launching 700+ websites offered abundant ghost-writing opportunities, and the understanding of what makes for a “safe and secure” system in which to manage websites. My book, Web Diva® Wisdom: How to Find, Hire, and Partner With the Right Web Designer for You, provides the inside scoop on working with a web pro. I regularly write articles for the GoDaddy Blog, illuminating the processes of the web-o-sphere for both web pros and their clients. I’ve been interviewed on both the Women in WP and Hallway Chats podcasts.
A B.S. in Electrical Engineering from UC San Diego, and an M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford provided a solid foundation for a high-tech career of nearly 20 years. My corporate life included positions at Hewlett-Packard, Logitech, Quantum, 4Charity, and Jamcracker, with Director-level responsibilities in Engineering, Quality Systems, and IT. These experiences yielded a solid base in business understanding and client focus, which I can put to work assisting folks just like you.

I’m a member of both the Fremont and Mission San Jose Chambers of Commerce. I enjoy working with students, especially speaking at Career Day events. I designed the curriculum for a semester-long seminar course, Women in Science and Technology, which I taught at Ohlone College in Fremont, California for 10 years. Favorite hands-off-the-keyboard projects include designing costumes for a fabulous local musical theatre company, crafting items for sale or auction at fundraising events, and baking cookies for any (or no) occasion.
Recognition of which I am most proud includes a Leadership Award from Hewlett-Packard, an Outstanding Faculty Commendation from Ohlone College and the Don Gercich and People with Purpose awards, both for service and volunteer activities.
