and in that time, I’ve also seen all the amazing websites she’s created. So, when it was time to revamp my website, I knew exactly who I wanted to do it: Natasha! Natasha was so easy to work with; she was able to explain things in a non-techy way, she was patient and went above and beyond for me, and she took the time to understand exactly what I wanted, gave suggestions on what she thought would be helpful for me, and helped me totally recreate my brand. Even after several moths, I am still beyond happy with the website we created together.”
