People call me a “Website Goddess” or “Website Therapist” and more recently, “Web Mama.” As the main pixel pusher and code tinkerer at Amy Susan Design, I accept these names with honor.
I’m passionate about design, teaching, parenting, American Sign Language, yoga and technology, but not necessarily in that order. I’ve dabbled in various forms of art, photography, greeting cards, handmade books, delicious and yummy cold processed soap and graphic design. In need of my own website way back when, I armed myself with Macromedia Dreamweaver (now Adobe) and the then-current version of “Idiot’s Guide to HTML” to produce many sites.
I take my yoga seriously. I take designing websites seriously too. They both require focus, dedication and exploration and for me, they both provide opportunities for playful experiences. Yes, I get joy from trying to do crazy inversions and arm balances. And yes, I find bliss pushing pixels and tinkering with code.
Call me a “Yogini Geek” or a “Geeky Yogini.” Either way, I’ll bring my thoughtful dedication to your website needs!
what else do you need to know?
I’m a part-time Educator of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and a strong advocate for my students. When I’m not at my schools, working on website projects, or at yoga, you’ll probably find me hanging out with my awesome husband (my true companion, Gary), chilling with two dogs (Brody & Lily) and two cats (Gigi & Gizmo) and “dealing with” our two ferociously independent and amazing teenagers.
I’m your local pixel pusher…
And I do WordPress customization. I love WordPress because it’s great for small businesses, organizations or individuals alike. There are so many great features, which make it easier to focus on creating your content without worrying about all the funky back-end coding that gets people’s heads spinning! I offer HTML or WordPress based website (re)design, maintenance and WordPress support (I can speed up your learning curve). If you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you!
In a nutshell, Amy Susan Design is a small, intimate design shop that offers affordable, stylish and professional websites for individuals, small businesses and non-profit organizations.
I am a fan…
I’m a fan of WordPress. Seriously, it’s awesome. After years of working with various coders to create custom WordPress sites, I stumbled upon StudioPress. The sturdy, yet flexible Genesis Framework is pretty amazing with solid code, which makes my job easier to build great looking websites.
Check out this 44 page manual, “The Introductory Guide to the Genesis Design Framework for WordPress.” This manual may be enough to get you cruising with your site all by yourself! Or maybe it’s a reminder of what goes on behind the scenes is just not your thing! If that’s the case, talk to me and I’ll create a site all rocked out, just for you!
