Web Designer & Brand Strategist
Welcome to my little creative corner.
Hola! I’m Chantilly,
A work-at-home mom, multicultural blogger and one half of a mixed race couple.
I’m also the proud mama of two beautiful bicultural niños.
The truth is, I stumbled into this web design thing.
I started out helping families like ours to design their dream blogs and ended up pursuing a full-time career online.
With zero experience and less than a shoestring budget, I started my online business. It cost me a whopping $119.25. That bought me 12 full months of web hosting. Just enough time to try this out and see if I really had the chops for a web-based career. It took a lot of research and some serious hustle, but I’m here.
I like to joke that I taught myself web design through Google. And it’s true. I knew literally nothing about web design or blogging before I started my online journey, but I was determined to have a beautiful website and had zero budget for professional help…so I learned as I went.
Now, I help ambitious women build their platforms.
Since my humble beginnings, I’ve helped many women to evolve their blogs and businesses into highly successful online platforms. Together, we’ve created powerful social campaigns and fresh, innovative, niche-focused websites.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with some very passionate women, who are ambitious and driven by values. And they aren’t just my clients, they’re my friends.
It’s not just a business relationship for me. I’m invested in their success…and not just their business success, but success in their personal lives too.
Who I work with.
I work with women (and a few men) who I know that I can truly deliver the best experience to. In most cases, my clients fall into these three lifestyle categories:
- Busy moms who want to pursue their passion projects without sacrificing family;
- Bicultural women who don’t want to compromise who they are to reach their vision;
- Bloggers and entrepreneurs who want to build recognizable, high-impact brands;
What I do best.
I’m one of those people who likes to ask lots of questions. I like picking things apart, examining them, and then putting them back together again in a way that’s fresh and new.
That’s one of my super powers, I think. I pay close attention to things that others might not consider and I use those findings to inform my work.
Because of that…and a few other cool personality traits…these are some of the things I do really well…
- Take time to get to know you, your brand and your audience;
- Encourage you to express yourself and embrace your personal story;
- Extract key information about your project to help you simplify your approach;
- Coach you through all your options to help you make smart, informed choices;
- Act as a mediator between your creative ideas and professional goals;
- Help you to maintain focus and stay on track so you can fulfill your true purpose;
- Provide support and encouragement as you move forward on your personal journey;
- Help you create a network of like-minded supporters who keep you motivated and driven;
