My husband and I moved from the Lower Mainland to the beautiful Harbour City of Nanaimo in 1995. Shortly after, I began dabbling in web design hoping that a family homepage might make staying in touch with friends and family across Canada a little easier.
Well, this hobby has since become a passion.
In September 2005, when the youngest of my two children was at school full time, I took the opportunity to also go back to school full time. I completed and thoroughly enjoyed the two year Internet Production (iPro) diploma program offered through Malaspina University-College, now Vancouver Island University.
Part of the curriculum was a class contest to create a working mock-up website for the Media Studies Department. The winning team would receive the opportunity to design and build a website for the Media Studies Department. My partner and I won this opportunity and I headed up a group of three students who designed and built the Department’s website. The site was hand coded using PHP and a MYSQL database.
Unfortunately, the department has since had its website redesigned (many times over) by students, so our site is no longer available for viewing.
I work from home with very little overhead thus enabling me to keep my fees very competitive.
If you have further questions, and I hope you do, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
