About Aligned

Say hi to Aligned

Intuitive design + next-level code = website magic

Welcome to Aligned Creative! This single-woman digital studio was founded with budding business owners in mind. After completely switching careers from retail merchandising & buying to website design & development, I understand taking a risk & making the leap to pursue what lights you up.

I love partnering with other small business owners who are building new careers themselves or need a site upgrade after trying to DIY it (hey, tech isn’t for everyone).

I’ve always had a knack for both the analytical and the creative, so I’ll take care of every step of the website building process – from planning to design to full development.

Together we’ll create a custom, purpose-driven site that reflects your personality, your brand vision, and your target audience. Because your online space should be uniquely you.

— exploring woo-woo things, but with a grounded approach
— planning our future move to Amsterdam
— saving Instagram posts to collections
— watching my 3 cats (Murphy, Midge, & Finn) do literally anything
