Just supply the design and I’ll take it from there, keeping you in the loop every step of the way! Let’s build something together.

What I Can Do for You:

Are you looking for a reliable WordPress website developer to bring your custom WordPress design to life? Are you a WordPress development agency with overwhelmed in-house resources and you’re looking for a freelance developer to handle overflow work and lighten the load? Are you a web designer who wants a web development partner so you can offer your clients both design & development services? Do you know exactly what you want your WordPress website to look like but you need development help to make it happen?

If you said yes to any of the above, let’s talk! I work with agencies & individuals across the U.S. & internationally to deliver high quality WordPress work on time and in budget. I can help agencies scale their operations to easily handle more work or relieve overburdened in-house teams, allow designers to add to their offerings by being a trusted partner on the development side, and overall deliver quality WordPress development work on-demand.

I know how much effort goes into creating the perfect look & feel for a site. That’s why I work together with every client to ensure the website I’m building reflects that vision in appearance & behavior. I also know how frustrating it can be to have a developer who leaves you out of the loop during the process, left wondering where your project stands and what’s going on, missing deadlines, not delivering and causing you unnecessary stress. Maybe your past bad experiences have even made you hesitant to try to use an outside resource again. I promise you: you won’t find anything like that here. Project transparency is emphasized throughout the project with constant client communication. You’ll get frequent status updates with visible progress so you can see any custom WordPress site as it comes together. You’ll rest easy knowing your development timeline is staying on track and the website project will be launching on time.

My attention to detail shines when delivering pixel-perfect matching of provided designs, built with best WordPress practices at the forefront.

Client Testimonials


I’ve hired Kristin to work on multiple sites for my clients and each time she has executed a flawless project start to finish. I am a designer and I’m extremely detailed oriented. I was so pleased to find that Kristin is as well! Her communication and adherence to our timeline were impeccable. My favorite thing about her process is that she sent many checkins per week to let me know the status of the project and keep me posted on how things were going. When an issue arose, she was on it offering me multiple solutions. I will hire her again for sure!


Kristin was incredibly accommodating and flexible. She always met deadlines and clearly communicated with both myself and the client. She is very organized and most importantly, she doesn’t gloss over the details. Certain aspects of our project were very detail-oriented and Kristin took the time to understand the requirements and the details in the visual design. I would hire her again and definitely recommend her as a WordPress developer.


I’ve worked with a lot of developers in the past and I have never ever come across one that is as professional and talented as Kristin. Through our initial email to the launch of the project, Kristin displayed so much knowledge of WordPress. She walked me through her entire process and had the patience of a saint every time I asked her a question – and there were many! I couldn’t have asked for better communication, either; it was beyond excellent. Every step of the project, I knew EXACTLY what was going on and what was going to happen next.
