I am also a Website Designer; and there is a special place in my heart for assisting my fellow EAL/EAP practitioners. In fact, I designed the Horse Powered Reading site you are browsing right now! Having a clean, organized website immediately boosts your credibility and builds trust with your audience.  Your site can help grow your clientele, allows clients to book and pay for sessions online, is an excellent platform for obtaining donations and grant money, helps increase awareness through social networking, blogging, and email campaigns, allows you to share special events and fundraisers with the public, and more. I am dedicated and determined to bring awareness to our profession. We KNOW horses can change lives! Your site will be clean, easy to navigate, simple to maintain, and ultimately...an authentic reflection of your program and services.

I offer special pricing for certified Equine Specialists and can tailor website packages to fit any budget. Call me to set up a Free Consultation. I'll answer your questions and we can talk horses!
