Frustrated trying to learn WordPress on your own?

Frustrated WordPress

You’re not alone. Many people who just want to get a website up and running, or make a few tweaks can be overwhelmed by WordPress’ backend. Though the internet is great for so many things, it can be overwhelming. It’s much easier–costing less gray hairs–and more efficient with Local WordPress training one-on-one from a local WordPress expert.

That’s where I come in! I’ve successfully worked as a WordPress designer (and coder) since 2006 in Oakland, San Francisco Bay Area, California. I am your local WordPress expert. I learned WordPress back in 2004 on my own by messing with the dashboard and the code (theme files). So, I know WordPress intimately and can train you to get what you need from WordPress for your next online project.

Let me help you with your self-hosted WordPress or your hosted website, today!

Kemi built us an incredible, responsive, sophisticated website. I recommend her for anyone who wants incredible multi platform usability and intuitive back end. She worked with me through several painstaking iterations because my design sensibility is so picky, and then she made sure it was super functional. She’s a great project manager, and made sure to note when I was making requests or decisions that would impact the timeline. We love Kemi!
