Raenali Publications

"Karla and her team of professionals are exceptional in providing a thorough assessment and on target strategies to insure your success. Outstanding in every way including project management, creativity and problem solving, they are the dream team that every company wishes to have.

"Karla helped me on two recent website projects. Both had unforgivingly tight deadlines, and she hit every milestone on time and on budget. One thing I found exceptional about working with Karla is the scope of her skills. "On paper" I hired her to perform the role of WordPress developer (and she is top-notch in that specific role). But as we got into the nitty-gritty details of the projects, she made so many valuable suggestions on a range of disciplines: graphic design, UX, navigation, content organization, writing, you name it. I look forward to working with Karla in the future."

They are knowledgeable and up-to-date on all things digital. They are collaborative and communicative and deliver an excellent product on-time and on-budget. Karla and her team approach their work with integrity, professionalism and smart thinking. And bonus, they are genuinely nice people and a pleasure to work with."

“Since we’ve made the switch to WordPress, we’ve been able to grow our website faster and it’s much easier to use. We’re able to support more families and provide them quicker access to resources in their time of need, which is so important to us.”

"Karla and her team have been a tremendous help to us over the past few years. She started by helping to complete a totally new website and has continued to be a resource we can count on when we need to refresh and update. She is very responsive when we have a problem that needs a quick resolution. We really appreciate that she cares about our organization and it’s mission as well. Karla and her team are great to work with!"
