You are looking at my dream. Yes, right here on your screen 🙂 When I was a little girl I would spend hours drawing and drafting designs and organizing them in binders for my “clients”. I loved designing and dreamt of having my own design studio one day. As I got older, I had a hard time believing having my own studio was the “sensible” thing to do so I started college to become a teacher. On a whim, I took a painting class as an elective. After that painting class, I was hooked on creating as much art as possible. Three years later, I finished my bachelors degree in Graphic Design. After college, I went into business to business sales and used my design skills to help create killer presentations that won sales.
In 2008, I married a dreamy Worship Pastor, Daniel Goulet, and we immediately started our family. Soon after, I stepped out and started my first business, a fitness boot camp for early risers. For this business, I created my first website design and fell in love with a web design platform called WordPress. I used my sales experience, and my graphic design skills together to launch that business. I quickly realized that having a great business website was going to be required for any business in the future. My family and friends started to realize that they needed great looking websites also and started hiring me to design for their businesses and organizations. Those referrals continued and my website design business was born.
After working halftime creating websites and halftime for a church for four years, I took the “creative leap” in 2016 and began designing websites and graphics full time. This is more fun, challenging, and rewarding than I ever imagined. This is the dream that I had as a pre-teen and I am grateful every day to see it become a reality.
In June 2018, I launched a digital marketing company to complement my website development services. Fresh Light Digital provides fresh looking, conversion-focused websites for service-based businesses and provides the digital marketing support to drive traffic to them. Learn more at freshlight.co.
On a personal note, I currently live in Champaign, IL with my husband and our three young sons. We bought a fixer-upper house a few years ago, and we are currently in the throughs of making it our dream home.
