Hi, I'm Karen

Nice to meet you!

I’ve been making websites for 18 years.
It all started with a website for my wedding. After more than a few people asked who I’d hired to do it, Brightgirl Designs was born!

If I’m going to do something, I like to do it right.
I already had degrees in education and counseling, but went back to school to earn an Advanced Certificate in Website Graphic Design from Washtenaw Community College (Ann Arbor, Michigan). I also taught web coding/design classes there for several years after. In 2012, I met WordPress and never looked back! (And, yep, I still use my coding chops every. single. day.)

Some clients call me their “technology therapist.”
I love working with websites, but I also love working with people! I’m privileged to be a valued partner in helping my clients reach their goals.

Whether you have an existing WordPress website in need of attention, or you’re starting from scratch, I can’t wait to help!
