About Me

I am a passionate full-stack web developer with over 10 years of professional experience and a love for crafting responsive, easy to use and beautiful websites. As a web developer I am constantly communicating with project managers, designers and other developers in order to keep projects updated with new technologies, running smoothly and on budget. The ever growing list of web requirements, including: technical expertise, communication and art, is why I absolutely love what I do.

IBM Southeast Employee's' Credit Union Responsive Website

IBMSECU

Launched: March 2016

Full Responsive Site Build Using Sitefinity CMS with full ADA compliance

This website redesign project began with a discovery session to determine exactly what IBMSECU needed, and how to deliver it. The team's strategists then overhauled the website architecture after reviewing IBMSECU’s analytics, employing SEO and usability best practices and aligning with IBMSECU’s short and long-term vision.

While the old layout of IBMSECU’s website had informative content, promotional offers, and opportunities for members to explore new account options, the site was difficult to navigate and the outdated design wasn’t optimized for the various mobile devices their members used. Clean visuals, welcoming photography and organized content bands were introduced to IBMSECU’s site to engage and inform members throughout their financial journey. The new, responsive design, built in the Sitefinity CMS, allows members to quickly access their account, find a nearby branch or ATM, and read informative financial content no matter where they are and what devices they are on. Additionally, landing pages for each of IBMSECU’s SEGs provided just the information each company needs in an organized, informative manner.

With website ADA compliance regulations changing in 2018, IBMSECU knew that the new site needed to be built to conform to ADA standards. We ensured that the site design met WCAG 2.0 AA level standards so that those with visual disabilities could enjoy the same positive user experience as those without.
