Hi, I’m Licia!

I fell in love with web development back in 1996, when the internet was just finding its footing and loading times alone limited what we thought was possible [- insert dial-up connection buzz here -].

I started out as a self-taught web designer, and I was excited by the challenge of keeping up with fast-changing HTML, CSS, .PHP, and JavaScript languages.

As my skillset expanded and I built a reputation in the freelance world, comments and criticisms poured in – stick to the cute stuff, leave the real work to the guys, girls can’t code. I fought back and proved that I can do anything I set my mind to by earning a diploma in digital media and information technology with a specialization in WordPress web development, and taking my freelance business internationally.

As a confident business owner and busy mother of two, I prove that women have a big role to play in digital media and technology. With every project, collaboration, and team connection, I strive to uplift and support other talented women.

Through The Creative Website, I’m also committed to supporting women in technology by donating a portion of my profits to the Girls Learning Code and Ladies Learning Code non-profit programs.

I believe spreading prosperity, hope, and positive vibes are powerful side effects of purpose-driven, heart-centred business.

constant communication with me and even sent me tutorials so that I could make changes on my own
