Born in Poland, grew up in Canada, but I've also lived in Greece and the Cayman Islands. Website designer, turned photographer, turned back to website design when I got tired of being away from my family every weekend. I'm obsessed with travel, Disneyland, red wine and paddle boarding (only in the summer months). Being my own boss since 2009.

NEXT FAVORITE

There is nothing I love more than a lazy weekend morning where I can just hang with the boys. A good cup of coffee, warm fireplace and PJs till after lunch!

travel

I FILL MY CUP WITH...

I have a travel itch that comes on every 6 months. I need to get away from my town, whether for a weekend alone or a couple of weeks with the family. 

NEXT FAVORITE

cocktails in the backyard

I FILL MY CUP WITH...

Typically I'm a red wine kinda gal but I also love trying new cocktails recipes. I love adding fresh fruits and herbs to my drinks to add freshness.

coaching entrepreneurs

I FILL MY CUP WITH...

My favourite service is coaching calls with entrepreneurs trying to improve their business and understand how to show their services more consistently.

my favourite things

There are somethings that I just could not live without. Having a family with two boys that play sports, means a lot of schedules, and I'm not so great with the meal planning. Running a business is no joke, so I like the things that simplify my life and give me balance. Here are a few of my must haves for work and life.

Things I can't live without

I love it when clients contact me to finish up and fix the DIY website they’ve been trying to work on for months. They’ve usually feeling overwhelmed with the amount of work they didn’t realize would go into creating a website. After a short call, they feel like I’ve lifted a ton of weight off their shoulders. I am able to log into their Showit website, fix all of the edits they need to be done, and with a coaching call show them how to make future edits on their own.

Fixing up unfinished websites

Not every client project will be full of creative opportunities, this is why I love designing Showit website templates. When I have a new idea for a template I add it into my design book, so when I have time to just sit and create I know exactly where to start. In the design shop, you will find a few different varieties of templates, from full websites to add-on pages, guides and mini-courses to help you with your DIY project.

Designing templates & guides

You’ll hear me saying all the time that I always thought I’d be a math teacher when I grew up. Well, that didn’t happen, but there is an analytical part of my brain that feels the need to educate and make complicated topics simple. This is why I love SEO and the strategies of driving traffic to websites and converting that traffic to leads.

Educating creatives about SEO

Those ah-ha moments during coaching calls are my favourite. Letting clients take the lead on what they want to learn about Showit, their website, or SEO so that they can continue working on it on their own. It’s like I’m their personal in-house website designer that they can connect with any time.

website coaching calls

I love it when clients see my website and know what they want to add to it to make it their own. The templates that I design are vessels, great starting points for bigger and greater designs if that’s what your business calls for. Customizing websites for businesses that know exactly what they’re looking for is truly a creative’s dream come true.
