WordPress Website Development
Fast. Efficient. Beautiful.
I’m Joy. I deliver stylish WordPress websites for clients ready to share their message with the world. I’m fast and fun to work with! Here’s the deal…
A focused female entrepreneur* who knows the power of an online presence. You need a brand new website, a landing page or want to update your existing website. You are not afraid of technology but know that your best bet is to get support for this. You want to save yourself hours of frustration and don’t want a “duct-taped” finished product.
*Bonus points if your business also has a social purpose 🙂
What I Do
I take solid, branded content and create custom websites on the Divi Theme. Here’s what makes me awesome:
♦ I’m a Toronto-based native english speaker. I also speak “entreprener”, “designer” and some HTML & CSS.
♦ I work fast and have an eye for design. Been using Divi for years and can hack this theme like nobody’s business 😉
♦ I bring almost 10 years of WordPress & 14 years of marketing experience to the table. Not all web devs do.
♦ I reply. I don’t leave my clients hanging for days on end without returning calls or emails. I’m on it. You will hear from me.
♦ Friendly is my middle name. Well, not literally, but I’m known for being professional and “a joy” to work with.

WordPress hosting preferred
Divi is one of the most flexible and powerful WordPress themes available today. Since it’s initial release it has evolved into a full fledged marketing tool. Here are a few key reasons why I use it extensively:
1. Extensive customization options out-of-the-box with additional CSS styling available.
2. Prototyping is a snap. Drag-and-drop modules let you build & test multiple layout options, fast.
3. It is a very teachable theme with a short learning curve for non-techies.
4. Dedicated developers & support team are constantly making improvements to the theme.

I need a custom website design. Are you a coder?
My coding skills extend to basic HTML and CSS. Fortunately, highly customized website designs are very easy to create with Divi. Unlimited colour options and over 600 fonts are available. I can add custom CSS styling wherever it is required in the design.
Do you build on other WordPress Themes?
Working with Divi allows me to guarantee a custom design with an incredibly fast turnaround time – typically 10 days or less. For this reason, I do not usually work with other WordPress themes. I am able to use the Divi Builder with some other themes, so get in touch if your project has special needs.
Can you build e-commerce websites?
Yes. I can create everything from simple sales pages with Paypal integration for digital products to full physical product e-stores. The specifics of your project requirements will determine the length of time needed and the final price. Get in touch for an estimate.
Now the site is built, how can I maintain it?
Maintaining your new site is very important. I provide add-on training sessions for clients who want to get to know their backend better. I also offer monthly maintenance packages to ensure your site stays updated and bug free. Get in touch to learn more.
