About Emily

I grew up in Granbury, Texas – the seventh generation of my family to live in Hood County. I attended public school in Granbury through graduation. Upon graduation, I enrolled in Texas Woman’s University in Denton. After two years, I decided I was just too far from home. I moved back that summer and transferred to Tarleton State University, my Dad’s alma mater. I graduated with a B.A. in English. I worked for non-profits for 10 years before deciding to start my own web design business.

My husband and I met in 2008 in Leadership Granbury. We have been married for 6 years and have 3 dogs and 1 cat. We are new parents to a baby boy.

My Web Design Background

I created my first website using crude, self-taught HTML during my freshman year of college. I was majoring in English, but had quite a crush on the center fielder for the Texas Rangers, Laynce Nix. I created a fan page for Laynce, staying up way too late in my dorm.

When I started my first “real job” at age 22, I was given the task of creating a website for my employer – the Hood County Senior Center. There wasn’t a website at all, so I started from scratch. I had used WordPress as a blog, but never as a fully-fledged website creation tool. I taught myself with lots of Googling and got the site up and running.

In the years since, I have used the WordPress platform to create and/or maintain websites for an entertainer, association, retail store, artist, church, and summer camp. The websites are as varied as my clients, and are customized to their wants and needs.
