I am interested in working with local businesses and non-profits. Additionally, I enjoy contract work for large corporations, marketing firms and local web developers.

One of my greatest strengths is project management. I understand how to move through the website development process to deliver a completed project. Visit the Web Design and Online Marketing pages to learn more about the design and development process.

My local clients enjoy that we can meet in person to work on their projects. Those out of the area know that I work well remotely as I am readily available via email and phone.

Thanks for visiting LaLa Projects to learn about the services that I offer. Check out my Portfolio page to see a selection of projects that I have been involved with. Please contact me if you would like to work on a project together.

Core Values

Make work fun

Enjoy what you do

You spend most of your life working, you might as well enjoy what you are doing.  In 2014 I shifted my career path slightly and started LaLa Projects.  I have never enjoyed my work life more.  To me, the work I do at LaLa Projects is interesting, challenging and fun.


Remote working for all

As the owner and founder of LaLa Projects I have been working remotely for more than 10 years.  This may be a new idea to some, but I fully embrace the remote lifestyle and as my firm grows I want to maintain this for myself and other staff members.

Aim for Greatness

Always do your best

I love having happy clients.  It is my goal to make my clients feel like they have had the best website design, development and service experience with LaLa Projects.  I think this is achieved through good communication, availability and delivering completed work.

Find the Good

Build strong partnerships

Finding good clients, partners and staff is imperative to maintaining a happy work life.  A good fit is more important than money.  

Empowering Others

You get what you give

As LaLa Projects grows we have started to build a network of freelance staffers.  It is my goal to lift people up, support them in the work they do and empower them to follow their passion.
