Hi, I’m Anne!
As an experienced developer with a business background, I build websites and features that help grow businesses like yours.
Visit my site to get to know me better and see samples of my work: https://www.anneschmidt.co.
A development partner for your business.
I’ve been coding for 20 years, focusing on Wordpress as a full-time developer for the last eight. Prior to starting my own business, I worked in finance and corporate strategy for Citi, Disney, Hanes and Boston Scientific. I have a business degree from the University of Virginia.
My business background gives me a unique perspective on web development. With every project, I like to start with the end business goal in mind. This allows me to maintain the project’s focus, suggest potential approaches and ensure the end outcome meets your needs.
With every project, my priorities are to:
- Ensure you are happy with my work and with the end result.
- Maintain and/or enhance ease of use of your site, so you can offer a smooth experience for yourself and for end users.
- Provide well-structured code and a process that’s easy to follow, so you can continue to manage your site to build your business.
- Leave you with a site that meets your business goals — whether that be conversions, e-commerce sales, lead generation, etc. I want to help you build a site that helps you achieve your dreams.
Being a web developer allows me to grow my company and my young family, and is an extension of my favorite childhood summer pastime: learning Excel formulas on my dad’s PC (yes, really!).
Projects I like to focus on include:
- PSD to WordPress conversions
- Custom form building, especially using Gravity Forms
- Advanced plugin creation and modification
- Video, email, and ecommerce integration
- Custom themes and custom child themes
- Anything utilizing the Genesis Framework
Some of my recent projects:
Here are a few of my favorite sites that I have developed and supported:
To help Link-able build a white-hat marketplace for SEO content, I converted Photoshop designs to a custom child theme with advanced Gravity Forms, user registration and FacetWP search capabilities.
To help EduChange grow its educational resources and impact, I converted their site to a modern theme with an integrated page builder, allowing their team to easily update and add content to their site.
To help Smithey Ironware get its premium skillets in the hands of more gourmands, I’ve provided ongoing custom support to augment their site — from ecommerce to a dynamic retail locator.
Here’s what some of my clients have said about working with me:
“Anne is fabulous! Work was completed quickly and exactly as requested.”
“She clearly is skilled in both developer language and issues and has people skills—a great combination.”
“Very professional and responsive, will hire again.”
How can I help you build a site that helps grow your business?
Anne has been consistent and patience with our testing, feedback and changes. She has been a delight to work with and carries a professional approach born from extensive experience.
Anne was easy to work with and knew what she was doing. She responded to my questions in a timely manner and was very helpful. I am very pleased with her work.
Anne was great to work for. Got me the research and recommendations I was seeking and for that I'm grateful! Thanks, Greg
Anne did a great job for us. She was quick, knowledgeable, and responsive. She was able to teach WP new tricks specific to our project.
She was great, We had a direction in mind, it wasn't the best fit for us in the future. Anne offered advice and guidance and has laid out a plan for a future site build. The best thing is she fixed our current site so we can operate while we move forward with the permanent solution.
Anne was great to work with. She was clear in communication. Helpful in answering our questions and suggesting solutions. And the final product worked as intended. Would highly recommend.
Anne has been an absolutely PERFECT development partner - her expertise and responsiveness have allowed me to continue to focus on other activities for my client while she has masterfully continued site development in parallel. Anne is a delightful, skilled professional and I look forward to working with her again.
Anne is very kind, professional, and willing to educate and allow you the time you need to be confident the job has been done to your satisfaction.
Anne really went above and beyond on my project. There was a plugin issue that required a lot of back and forth and troubleshooting with the plugin creator (not her fault) and she handled it for several days. She's very responsive and helpful and I will definitely use her again.
Anne was absolutely fantastic to work with. Wonderful communications, excellent quality of work and so quick. We look forward to our next project with Anne!
Swift delivery :)
She was amazing she handled issue efficiently and extremely fast. Thank you
