How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

2 years

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was born and raised on Prince Edward Island Canada. Came to the USA in the late 90's to be a part of the dot com scene!

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I have a background and education in PR and journalism. I love to write, but realized that writing was not my calling. I started designing websites in the early 90s and found my calling. I've worked for various companies in my younger days, such as CBS Interactive, but I've had my own agency Ladybugz.com for almost 20 years. This was a perfect career for having a family and while I worked full-time I grew my business enough to make it a full-time gig. About 5 years ago I decided to scale my agency and soon became a 5 person operation specializing in web design + digital marketing. Two years ago my company merged with 3 Media Web Solutions which is the company we now operate under.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

Our clients would say we are the best agency they have ever worked with! We are organized and launch large-scale projects on time and on budget. This is not a typical testimonial for an agency! We hear what our clients have to say regularly about their past agency experiences. Agencies are great, you just have to choose the right agency with the right services for your business. We have differentiated ourselves from other agencies by offering three core services, the types of clients we handle and having stronger technical expertise for the types of projects we handle. We work and partner with other agencies and vice-versa. Agencies working together? Would would have thought! But these partnerships are highly valuable to our business. Our support business has doubled in the last year. We support all the sites we build along with providing services for the marketing professionals who manage them. We also get digital marketing results! We have seen significant growth in data-backed digital marketing strategies we've implemented for clients. When you can prove the ROI clients have no problems spending money.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Stop focusing on what you can't do and focus on what you can do!

What’s your favorite book?

Anything Brene Brown

What’s your secret weapon?

I live by all things Google, Google Apps, Google Calendar, Google Docs

What advice would you give to your younger self?

My advice would be to embrace your failures and look at them as an opportunity to improve yourself personally and professionally

What is something that not many people know about you?

I'm born and bred from Prince Edward Island, Canada, the home of Anne of Green Gables. Like many people, I came to the US to live the American dream.
