I’m listing projects here. I like to keep in touch with the nonprofit organizations I work with and in several instances I’ve continued to offer support after completing a website project. For instance, I helped Uptown Stories with their Uptown Stories website from November 2019 to June 2022 and from August 2021 to June 2022, supported their Uptown Ink website. For both websites I assisted with site improvements, created weekly backups, monitored site security and updated plugins and themes. In late December 2021 and early 2022, I assisted Copper City Community Connection with updates and improvements to their website.
