Katie Ayres, web developer and owner of 1 Happy Place, LLC

The name, 1 Happy Place, reflects my primary goal of ensuring you feel comfortable and happy with your website. I have been a Software Developer for 30 years and love to take the real world and bring it into the digital space. As a full-stack developer, I work with WordPress, Shopify and other technologies to create features that will best serve your business needs.

I take the time to get to know you and your creative work to build a website that best communicates your career. I create designs that bring the work front and center, so visitors to the website focus only on your work and not the website itself.

Websites should keep pace with the ebb and flow of your creativity. Once the website is launched, I provide you with affordable hosting and support over the long term, ensuring the website is always fresh, reflects your business and runs smoothly.
