Working with Colleen McCarthy to introduce me to social media and get me up and running with mail chimp has been a terrific experience. She embodies a wonderful hybrid of passion and patience, and at every step of the way, she gently and skillfully ushered me into the new (and sometimes daunting) territory with unfailing enthusiasm.

Colleen truly loves what she does, and even better, she loves sharing what she knows, so that the rest of us are let in on the secret. I wouldn’t hesitate to call upon her for help with any of my web/social media needs.

As you can see by my title I wear many hats – creating a website that serves them all is a challenge.

Colleen McCarthy was able not only to give me what I asked for but also was able to show me what I needed. What I asked for was a solid architecture that I could work from. She built that quickly and easily and helped me flush out the areas that I was not clear on, making the organization of the website easier for my clients.

Visually, she created a logo and look that reflects me as a whole not just the different things that I do – I feel that her design reflects the essences of who I am.

The third thing is her ability to teach – she has made it very easy for me to understand my website and how to navigate through it.

I would whole heartily recommend her.

I have personally known Colleen for many years and recently had the opportunity to use her services to rebuild the website for Canadian Outrigger Racing Association.

Her professional approach and communication style made working with her a very pleasant experience.

Not only was her work performed as promised, on time and on budget, she spent some extra time to help the people using the website to get up to speed.

The website is very functional and meets the needs of the Association. I would fully recommend Colleen for work of a similar nature. Her professional approach and communication style made working with her a very pleasant experience.

Colleen does much more than design websites. If it hadn’t been for her calm, skilled efficiency I would still not be even close to having a site.

I could not be more pleased with the results.

She was able to accomplish getting me painlessly over a major technology hurdle and I could not be more pleased with the results. And, now I am keen that this be just the beginning!
