Lisa-Marie Karvonen 

I'm a Scottish female web developer with over 10 years of experience of coding in open source. My particular specialities are bespoke WordPress themes coded from scratch. I have also developed applications in CodeIgniter, MediaWiki, OpenCart and Flynax. In addition to the technical side I can also help customers with their digital marketing and SEO. My technical background means I can get into the nitty gritty of optimising sites for speed and search engine ranking as well as using analytics to hone in on problem areas.

    “It was a pleasure working with Lisa on my project. She went above and beyond the requirements and I am very pleased with her work. If I needed something modified or added she didn't hesitate to implement my changes even though a few were outside the scope of the project. Communication was a breeze, and she provided detailed and frequent updates via Skype and email as we progressed. Highly recommended and will definitely hire again!”
