Testimonials

Greg Wilson

During her time at BlueRidge Interactive, Niki worked on numerous projects as a Front End Developer and was always a great asset to the team. In her role with the team she honed skills not only in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, but also LESS and Sass CSS preprocessors, various CMS’s in a variety of back end languages, JavaScript libraries, and more. She often stretched herself by accepting challenging assignments, and offered to contribute wherever she could.

In addition to her technical skills, Niki has a great design eye and ability to articulate in ways everyone could understand.

Aimee Custis

I worked with Niki in 2012 to redesign and relaunch our website at the Coalition for Smarter Growth. While I have a design background myself, Niki was invaluable with helping me understand what we were looking for for our web design, realizing it, and then taking my design ideas to the next level.

I found Niki incredibly responsive and easy to work with, and have recommended her team many times to others looking for web design work. I wouldn't want to work with anyone else!

Jenny Lawhorn

I worked closely with Niki last year to build, design, and launch a site for my business from scratch. Niki was highly recommended to me by another designer who said she was creative and super responsive, which all turned out to be true. Niki always brought me great choices, and did so on time or early. Likewise, she delivered designs when she promised them or early. She is intuitive about what you need and takes time to understand what you are trying to do. Conversations were productive and fun but also efficient.

She is a great listener and applies her design talents to help make you look great online. She is also flexible and behind you all the way. When I had to rush and get my site live in September she was on top of it and enabled me meet my deadline.

She was great about pointing out opportunities for SEO and giving pro tips on how to refresh content. She has also taught me to use Wordpress by myself and when I am not able to do something she sends a video of her doing it as a demo. I still refer to these from time to time. Niki is a rare combination of super creative and responsible/ on time with her work. I highly recommend Niki.

Seba Renfroe

As I finally got around to filing last year away, it struck me that we totally re-vamped our website with little more than a phone call to Niki. We gave Niki just a vague idea of what we wanted and she took it from there. The whole process was so simple and easy for us non-geeks. And we love the results! Our site began getting more 'hits' right away and all of the comments on the new design have been very positive.

Kristin Miller

Niki takes the time to learn her clients’ needs, brainstorming with the client on how her design will help with their business.  She designs easy to use websites and offers outstanding teaching sessions on how to use it.  Niki is quick to answer questions and make tweaks to meet changing needs.  I would definitely use her service again.

Niki has a proactive approach to her work. She is very responsive and does a great job of problem solving issues. I always knew if I asked her a question, she would respond in a timely manner and provide a solution. She's also very creative and has a good eye for what works well on websites. I enjoyed working with her and learning from her.

Leslie Saunderlin

I have worked with Niki for several years on a multitude of projects. She is a talented programmer able to combine the technical and detail oriented side of code, with the conceptual and creative demands of design. She is wonderful at educating her clients all the way through the process, turning something like code (often scary to the mainstream) into something accessible. She is funny, warm, and can manage a deadline while staying on, and often under, budget. I highly recommend her services and look forward to the opportunity to work with her on future projects
