WordCamp Session Title
WordPress Beginner Track
Why Is This Important?
As Gregg Franklin is leading the charge, I love helping beginners get up and running. It’s a way to give back from all those who helped me when I started.
How Did You Discover WordPress?
I started using WordPress as I was a photographer in need of a new website. Old site was flash (yep!) and after spending a week with Joomla, I found WordPress. The rest is history!
How Do You Use WordPress?
I provide a range of services for small and medium sized business with a focus on maintenance and security through my site at ConciergeWP.com. I also teach a WordPress Essentials course to beginners.
How Has WordPress Impacted You?
After attending my first WordCamp in Orange County, I knew I had found my tribe. The amount of sharing without expectation was amazing to me.
What Do You Do When Not Working?
Standard things: Run, movies and reading actual physical books. I also listen to a bunch of podcasts. Lately I’ve also been fostering dogs.
What Is Your Favorite Candy?
Though I try to stay healthy, I’m a sucker for chocolate and digging Trader Joes PB Cups these days.
