"Mari was very helpful for our club website as we had no prior knowledge of WordPress. Thanks to Mari's help we were able to post new info.
Members are pleased that we are once again up to date! Thank you Mari for all your help now and in the future!"
When I volunteered to create a site for my organization, I turned to Mari Kane as I knew she was a Word Press expert. She provided knowledgeable gentle guidance and offered suggestions whenever I asked her opinion. Whatever your Word Press needs are, I highly recommend working with Mari.
I was pleasantly surprised when I found Mari. She showed me the backend of WordPress and helped me work through it. She helped solve all of my issues with her casual, calm demeanour and excellent knowledge. In 3 sessions with Mari I was able to launch my site. Thank you Mari!"
