The About Page

So they say the about page is one of the most visited pages on a website. It’s the page where people go to see if you’re a good fit for them.

Can I connect with this person, will they be able to help me, will I like this person? (Ok this intro paragraph is starting to sound like this is a blog post about the about page.)

I’m Adrianne and when I’m not designing packages, image cropping, and retouching photos during the day…

…. I’m teaching small businesses and entrepreneurs how to build their online business.

Adrianne is approachable, you can talk to her about your website issues.

Adrianne is our investigator of all problems that arise with our website, she knows exactly how and where the problem happened. I swear if her chosen career was with the FBI she would have found Jimmy Hoffa by now.

A Little More About Adrianne

Adrianne is a self-taught graphic/web designer. About 12 years ago, she started working at a small printing company a few blocks from her house as a graphic designer. There she would design brochures, postcards, catalogs and annual reports. She was also the prepress manager (manager of 1, herself) , project manager and customer support for the sales reps accounts. Oh and the exterminator.

She then became fascinated with the online world. She registered for a web design course at her local community college and has been in the online space for the past 6 years. She has coded small websites from scratch and then discovered WordPress.

A helper by nature, in one of her previous contracting positions she taught colleagues how to build pages in the company’s CMS. Teaching them basic HTML, CSS and troubleshooting broken pages. Now she is in love with teaching.

She lives in a small suburb just outside of Chicago surrounded by cemeteries (there’s more dead people in her town than live). She’s been stuck on her computer, nights and weekends for the past 3 years taking courses, learning and building her side hustle (her adult kids keep saying, “Mom you’re going to die in your chair”).
