Expertise You Can Count On
Two years ago I had no prior experience in coding or web development, so I decided to teach myself through online courses, in-person workshops, YouTube videos, and blogs. Through this process I started my own online store on Shopify. The first store I launched failed with no sales, but my second store exploded within two weeks of launch. In the past two years, I have developed a passion for ecommerce and supporting other like-minded entrepreneurs and small businesses succeed. With a Bachelor's degree from University of Waterloo and progress in the Bachelor of Education program at Western University, I have the added experience to help your business thrive. My ultimate goal is to get your online store off the ground and give you the tools to become an expert in managing the online portion of your business.
