I’m Kara and I make websites, websites for women just like you. For people who want to build a life on their own terms, who follow their hearts to build businesses that allow them to live the life they dream of. I’m just like you, that’s what I want too. I want to help you succeed. I want to give you the website you always wanted, but could never quite explain. The one that you look at and go, “Yeah, that’s totally it.” So you can build your online business and live that dream life.
Geek. Hippie. Vermonter. Me.
I grew up in the idyllic setting of rural Vermont. From an early age I was creating with anything I could get my hands on. Drawing? Yes. Arts and Crafts? Yes. Salvaging raw clay from the stream to create works of art? Yes. I never really knew what I wanted to do with my life, but three things stood out to me:
- That I had to create.
- That it had to be on my own terms.
- It should involve horses, preferably. Oh, and computers, I love those too.
Throughout school I continued to create, taking every art class I could, but ultimately my love of horses won out. I found myself pursuing my BS in Animal Science at the University of Vermont. While in college I discovered my love of creating websites. It’s almost magical, turning nearly incomprehensible code into something that does things, that looks good, that has a form and function of its own. It’s this act of creation that I fell in love with.
It was in college I also fell in love with something else, well someone else. Someone who would go on to years later, become my husband. As it has a way of doing, love turned my world on its head. After graduation, struggling to find a job in my field I worked whatever I could find. Including retail, which I hated. It was during this time that my husband decided to enlist in the Marine Corps. I didn’t know much, but I knew enough about military life to know it would be hard.
In those first years I gave up everything I never thought I would. I left my beloved Green Mountain state, my friends, my family, and everything I had ever known. Yes, those dreams of owning a boarding stable? Yes, I gave that up too (at least for a time). If I couldn’t work with horses what would I do? Websites. That was something I could do anywhere. So I returned to school. I got my professional certificate in web design and started my journey in earnest.
I found myself in a small town in North Carolina. A thousand miles from home and my beloved Green Mountains. I got my first clients, faced my new husband’s first deployment, lived away from my home state for the first time, weathered my first hurricane, and yes, got my first horse. You see, some dreams do come true.
It’s been two duty stations since I first started out on this journey. I’m now living in Seoul, South Korea and am pursing my Masters in IT while helping my clients build their businesses online. I’ve worked with successful women around the world to help them bring their dreams, and build their businesses online. That’s why I make websites, after-all. To help you, create your dream business. To help you create your dream life.
To help women just like me, who have a dream, a vision, they need to share with the world.
Your dreams need hard work and a little help to become real, and I want to help you do that. A site is made of pixels and code, but it’s so much more. It’s someone’s heart and soul; their dreams, and goals.
