My Story:
From Flight Attendant to Web Designer

 

For most of my life I've been called a gipsy. Born and raised in Cologne, Germany, I spent my 20s living in Vancouver, Toronto and Miami before making London and England my home for nearly 16 years. Which, consequently, added a touch of British to my German accent! In 2003 I met my American husband through an online dating site and in 2014, after many more moves across the U.S. and Europe, we finally settled down in Bellingham, WA, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Professionally I am a bit of a Jill-Of-All-Trades and have flown around the world as a flight attendant for Lufthansa, managed IT projects in southern England, did corporate sales in the airline finance industry, ran my own online dating site and personal growth workshops in London, worked as a hotel manager in the Pacific Northwest, college secretary in Massachusetts and the registrar of an international school in Germany. 

Web design has been my creative outlet since 1999 and after many years in the Wordpress zone I discovered Squarespace in 2008 and instantly fell in love with its stylish templates and easy drag & drop editor. When we relocated from the UK to the US in 2014 a friend of mine asked me to redesign her business website and it was such a success that, instead of looking for a new job, I decided to start my own business as a Squarespace web designer and educator!

Since then I have designed more than 70 websites for small businesses and creative entrepreneurs, and my Squarespace courses have attracted hundreds of students. 

 
 

After all these years of wandering I finally created my dream job!

A heart-centered Business

As an empath and HSP it is very important to me to act from a place of integrity, substance and caring.

I am not a hustler, my approach is more gentle and personable. Above anything, I believe in great service and delivering high quality work, and my business has grown very organically, and steadily, as a result. 

As my client or student you will always be seen and heard.
