About Me

Hi! I’m Rachel, and this is my blog. I’m a 33-year-old wife, mother, blogger, web designer, wordpress developer, and social media marketing specialist living in lovely Salt Lake City, Utah, with two growing boys (ages 10 & 12), two fur babies, and a wonderful husband who puts up with all of us.  I’m still a recent transplant to Utah, originally from Peoria, Arizona.  I moved here here in 2010 to get a fresh start.  

I was lucky enough to get an early introduction to the internet.  Arizona State University offered teachers access to the gopher network, and I eagerly searched the resources provided to me, learning to use Telnet to chat and reading classic novels on the computer.  I found the “handshake” of the modem exhilarating and I’ve been hooked ever since.

When Netscape 1.0 was installed on my computer and actual websites began to appear, I knew right away that I needed to learn how to make my own.  I taught myself HTML and soon had my first website on Geocities.com.  The web became my artistic playground and I found deep fulfillment in writing code in a text editor.  I soon made friends who also were into web design and we learned from one another.  I created the website for both high schools I attended and continued to self-educate myself on the latest and greatest techniques.

Here it is, nearly twenty years later, and I’m still working on websites, enjoying the process now as much as I did so long ago.  I’ve expanded my knowledge to include HTML 5, CSS 3, PHP, WordPress, Javascript & Jquery.  I’m proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, & Dreamweaver.  And I’m still learning, always looking to expand my skills and learn a new language.  I’m also  a mother to two wonderful boys, married to a great guy who encourages me and helps me to be the best, with the best dogs in the world.  My hobbies include writing, novels, being a gourmet cook, and I’m an avid reader.  I kick some butt at karaoke too, or at least I try to.
