ABOUT AIMEE | DESIGNER
Raised in western NY by entrepreneur parents, it was natural that I find my footing owning a small business that helps other entrepreneurs. According to my dad, a custom home builder, he regularly reminded us 4 kids to “never work for ‘the man’“! So, instead I work for many, many of them while enjoying the freedoms and flexibility of maintaining a small, successful website design business.
I am a quick talker, fast thinker and always looking to solve the problem. So, if you work with me, expect to tell me what’s wrong with your current branding or website and I’ll find a solution within your budget. It’s just how I roll.
My knowledge of WordPress, StudioPress/Genesis Framework, Membership websites, eCommerce solutions, workflow management and email automation has been developed over my 12 year career. There’s nothing more satisfying than using analytics to prove my abilities post-launch.
I love digging into a new project to determine the primary call to action and ideal target audience, then creating an automated workflow. This ensures that you can go back to doing what you do best, while your website works for you.
I am a Jesus-loving, Bible-believing Christian that loves my sweet family, modern farmhouse living, exquisite yet minimalist design and gluten free cooking. I currently live in Northern Virginia with my husband, Lenny and our 3 children.

Why We Are Different
There are three very distinct differences in working with us versus them.
#1: Design and development operates together here at Anchored Design + Development. We never outsource any part of your project. We never share your passwords or rely on service providers to deliver. You are guaranteed to work with our team from beginning to end.
#2: Customer service is priority. Yes, we’re a website design firm, but that is not our primary business. We believe that if customer service wasn’t the #1 priority, we would not still be in business 12 years later. We are thankful for the long-term relationships we’ve created, repeat clients and countless referrals to ensure our business not open stays open, but thriving.
#3: There are NO surprise invoices. Ever. We believe in delivering your project on time and within your budget. During the project, inevitably, clients find new additions that become important to the workflow. If we fail to communicate and get approval for additions, we don’t bill you. It is our job to ensure we delivery what we say while keeping open communication at all times.
