  • Heather Christo (Development)
    https://heatherchristo.com/

    Heather is a blogger whose website needed to be revamped. When I first met with Heather, her website didn't at all reflect the positive energy she exuded in person and what came out in her blog posts. We iterated over the site 2 times before arriving at a site that captures her enthusiasm for health, wellness, and cooking.

    We also worked together to establish her email list. We implemented a few small things that helped people know that they could get updates from Heather via email and we grew her list to over 12 times the size as when we started.
