Aloha friends! I'm Taylor

Mother | Web Designer | Educator | Lover of Pineapples

I was born and raised in the wild & wonderful West Virginia. I was raised up around horses, 4-wheelers, hunting, river-swimming, and anything you can imagine when it comes to outdoors. When people hear my accent, it doesn't take them long to guess that I'm pure country at heart. 

MY Story

Don't let the accent and background fool you. I've explored a lot of the world, including living life in the city and spending time in one of my most cherished places: Hawaii. Starting to see the whole love of pineapples thing come together? 

I graduated from Shepherd University (WV) with a B.S. Degree in Communication & New Media (with a minor in Art) in 2015. My plunge into adult-life was the launch of my photography business in Kailua, Hawaii. When I came back to the mainland, I decided to tap into my degree more, which led to my web design & marketing passion. For years, I have studied digital marketing, social media trends, and what keeps businesses alive & thriving. I love what I do and offering marketing that is "Sweet & Spiky" is true to my brand and my character.

One thing that sets me apart from large agencies is my 100% undivided, client focus. I'm the partner you can confide in with your business needs. I value your trust & truly care about your online presence & marketing plans. When my clients goals are met, I enjoy celebrating in their success!

When you work with a web designer, it should be a true partnership of trust and determination to achieve your goals. I love my clients and think of many of them as my friends. Many have been with me from the very beginning...and many continued to trust me through my own life adventures. 

My little Sawyer was born June 7, 2021. Neil and I are so in love with her. She is slowly becoming a pineapple-lover like her mama. We live a relatively quiet life in West Virginia. Neil works as a funeral director, while I balance two jobs: High School English Teacher & Web Designer. We enjoy playing with our little one, walking with our dogs (Khaleesi & Annie), cuddling our cats (Fergie & Pickles), horseback riding, going to the beach, and just any adventure we can find, really. It's a beautiful life and we are so blessed.

teamwork makes the dream work
