Education & Web History

  • 2012
    I spent my entire Winter break in college building a portfolio.
    While my other TV broadcast classmates used a free blog, I went out and purchased my own website host,
    and edited a WordPress theme. I was offered by the professor to present my website in front of the class the first week of the semester.
  • 2013
    The portfolio I built, spawned a volunteer opportunity for a film fest.
    A friend introduced me to someone who frantically needed a website for a non-profit local film fest.
    I garnered my new skills and had a website up and running before the screening.
  • 2013
    I graduated from UNF and started a job just two weeks later.
    In college, I took on three internships, one was required and you were allowed a maximum of three more. I considered doing one more internship until I heard
    the words, “you got the job!” My first job dealt with uploading files and photoshop work which landed me at Web.com
  • 2015
    My custom-built WordPress site and Photoshop skills landed me a job at Web.com
    After working in video production, I yearned to work in web design and development. One of my jobs involved placing videos on the site and using FTP.
    I also learned Javascript own my own because I wanted to build web apps to increase productivity, I joined Web that fall to work on websites full time.
  • 2017
    Became the Digital Director for The JOMM
    The JOMM is Jacksonville’s Marketing Association. When I became the Digital Director, I revamped that site and I’m in charge of making sure we have attendees for our monthly events. My secret sauce is Email marketing conversions (yes, I believe in the email list too), social media presence, Meetup.com and increasing the website’s clickthrough rate.

Web.com | October 2015 – Present | Jacksonville, Florida

Wrote a company-wide proposal that circumvents an error I found in the phone systems. As of Aug 7th, the proposal is in the final review stages.
When commenced, it will change the company’s phone systems internationally. Build and maintain portfolio-grade websites using HTML, CSS, and Javascript for clients. Consult clients on what steps to take to maximize their success in the digital marketplace. Match the client’s request by hacking the disjointed WYSIWYG web editor but also using a method that a less knowledgeable agent could change.

Ensure that every site is mobile responsive by setting and adjusting breakpoints.

Save the company money by redesigning escalated client’s websites in a fraction of allotted time.

Cross-trained in E-commerce and help clients add products with ease.

Help customers maximize traction on Google by bringing their SEO score up to 100% in the company’s proprietary software.

Upsell clients on products that better suit their individual needs.

Awards:

Earned a WOW Wizard website design and kept a Quality Control score of 100% in March 2016.
