            Courses to Take

            "Right off the bat, the look matched exactly what I had envisioned. The template was fresh, current, professional and polished. It was also more complete than a lot of the other templates I had looked at. Everything was done instead of just a few pages that I would have then had to build off of. It also offered me "out of the box" branding that was in line with my vision, and the price point for all of that was something that my small business was able to afford."

            Kate, Kate Voda Photography

            "I used Jessica’s design as a launching pad for my author website and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Not only was the template beautifully designed, but it also functioned perfectly. All I had to do was tweak it to match my brand style. And best of all, it will continue to grow with me as my business grows."

            Erin Scoggins, Author

            “As well as talking to my ideal client with beautiful soft colours and fonts, I knew I wanted a template that really focused on customer experience. Jess has really thought out the design of the template and it is easy for my potential brides to funnel through and spend more time on my website."

            Tabatha, Lead Images Photography

            "I was looking for a beautiful, professional, template with an easy-to-understand tutorial on how to edit the template myself. The most important thing for me was a beautiful design and simple tutorial."

            Shannon Pruitt, Bespoken Events

            "When I purchased the template and course, I thought that's all I would receive. I did not expect the personalized assistance when I ran into some issues. I didn't expect you to go above and beyond by helping me solve technical issues/reaching out to Showit Support for me to help encourage it along. I cannot thank you enough for all you've done for me. You are worth your weight in gold!!"

            Shannon Pruitt, Bespoken Events

            "Before hiring Jessica to help me with my brand and website, I was frustrated and confused on how to capture my brand while implementing all of the necessary elements for a converting and beautiful website. One of Jessicas newest templates looked as if it was made for me. I bought it immediately and fell in love. It captured my vision for my brand. Hiring Jessica was one my best investments for my business growth."

            Tracy Wren, Christian Life Coach

            "I’m not very tech friendly with different systems and I don’t have the time to sit down and learn everything so my biggest challenge was just getting started and knowing what to do. It was frustrating because I’ve been trying to get my website going for months until I decided to hire you."

            Jennifer Madigan, Health & Nutrition Coach

            "I looked at a few different designers on the Showit site and I decided to go with your template because it was specifically geared towards health coaching so it made my job of writing all the content a little bit easier. I loved your website and templates. Very clean and professional."

            Jennifer Madigan, Health & Nutrition Coach

            "Through my website and with my new branding, I've booked 8 of my first weddings ever. I'm feeling like I can accomplish anything I want to, and I am confident that I can adjust my website as my business grows and matures - which is the best part!”


            Sam, Samantha Joy Photography

            "Jess was an amazing web designer and I am so glad I chose her to build my website. She was very professional and responded quickly to all of my questions throughout the process. Her website is beautiful and very easy to navigate from choosing an amazing template, to purchasing, and filling out the questionnaire. Everything is well put together and easy to figure out." 

            Jennifer Madigan, Health & Nutrition Coach

            "Prior to the launch of my website, I was only receiving a few queries a month for wedding photography. Since the launch of my new website, I am receiving queries every single day. I couldn't believe it! People tell me all the time how beautiful and easy the website it to use!”

            Tabatha, Lead Images Photography

            "The new website has given me a sense of confidence in my business that I didn't have before. I'm proud to hand out my business card, proud to link my website on my instagram, and proud of the customers I've been attracting because the website is so clear for my target market."

            lauren bongiorno, diabetic health coach & author

            "Jessica was always responsive to any questions that I had along the way, and I was very impressed with how easy it was to create my site once I purchased! I am more than happy with how my website turned out and I'm confident it will be a great addition to my brand and marketing."

            Meghan Mosakowski, Lifestyle Coach

            "She went above and beyond and took my website to a pro level, the parallax looks beautiful. Jessica brought my vision to life and my blog category looks so amazing! I highly recommend her and I can't stop telling my friends and family! Thanks for everything Jessica!" 

            Christie Ku, beauty, fitness & fashion blogger

            "Before my website I was totally lost. I knew exactly what I wanted in terms of website design, but I was stuck because I didn't want to pay thousands to have a site custom made for me, and I also couldn't get what I was wanting out of the cheaper Squarespace templates. I was at a loss! And then I stumbled upon your templates - and as soon as I saw them I thought THIS IS IT! And the cherry on top was that I could afford it. You completely filled this gap for me."

            Sam, Samantha Joy Photography

            "After the new website, I felt legitimate. I had a feeling a website would make a difference for my business - but I had no idea what a game changer an impressive website would actually be! It definitely helped to build my confidence as a business owner and I was absolutely proud to send clients to it for reference. I even had an extremely established photographer mention that she loved my site and how clean it is. Too legit to quit!"

            Sam, Samantha Joy Photography

            "I LOVE my new website, and my sales have increased dramatically due to the stylish and professional layout. Jessica was a dream to work with. Not only is she responsive, but she is professional and fun to communicate with. She went out of her way to go above and beyond for me, and worked quickly to turn around an truly amazing finished product. "

            Dawn Eicher, Dawn Eicher Photography

            "She has such a great eye for design and branding and helped build my site to fit my personality and my business. I would highly recommend Jess to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and professional website and am so grateful that she includes a website course to help manage your site. This is perfect. Thank you!"

            Jennifer Madigan, Health & Nutrition Coach

            "Hi Jess, I just wanted to let you know that since I launched my website with your Westlake template, my wedding inquiries have gone from one every couple of weeks to one every single day! I cannot believe it! I get compliments all the time about how easy and beautiful the website is to use. Thank you so much!"

            Tabatha, Lead Images Photography

            "Jessica's work has increased my client engagement by helping me unlock my full potential online. Her signature style is perfect for any boss babe looking for a fresh brand that truly embodies them! In the end, I got a BEAUTIFUL website and many other goodies. She was very responsive to all the questions I had and still remains an active person in my creative tribe who I will use again and again for as long as she will let me! :)"
