DoctorGeek had the knowledge and creativity to present some wonderful ideas for my new website. I wanted a professional, clean site with a unique personalized look. She really listened AND understood MY needs while offering suggestions I would never have imagined. After just a couple of conversations with Susan, everything just clicked into place and I have a website I am proud of. Now clients are really clear on who I am and exactly what I do. They not only call me for my services but to ‘high 5’ me on my new, beautiful website!

DoctorGeek is the go to person when your website is not aligning or, as in our case, was non-existing. As a small business we decided it was time to catch up with the times & thought we could set-up a website on our own. Needless to say we soon discovered that would not be the case. After admiring one of my favorite site’s design & the ease of navigating it, I noticed who they recommended & decided to contact Susan - which turned out to be the right choice. So if you want a professional looking website, work with someone who is knowledgeable, listens to your needs, and can explain things simply to those of us who are computer challenged. We recommend DoctorGeek.

Coordinating Council for Women in History

Coordinating Council for Women in History logo

The CCWH “seeks to broaden both the organization of women historians and the study of women's history to represent as fully as possible the diversity of women in the United States and internationally.” The 17-member Executive Board wanted to update the CCWH's online presence, email communications, social media integration and online credit card capabilities. A 2013 site redesign met these goals with a secure, easy-to-edit WordPress site. Google Docs for Nonprofits offers archived, transferable, position-based email accounts, shared cloud storage, collaborative online editing, video conferencing, and more for no cost. I redesigned the site again in 2017.

Susan recently completely redesigned our organization's website. Throughout the process, Susan was professional and attentive to the needs of the organization and very patient with those of us who have little technical expertise. Susan spent a considerable amount of time making sure that I was comfortable and knowledgeable about the way the website worked and always listened when I felt frustrated or misunderstood. I would highly recommend Susan and her work without hesitation to any organization or individual who needs a little more hands on care than others provide.

Western Association of Women Historians

WAWH logo with Western Association of Women Historians written in a symbol of the Roman goddess Venus is often used to represent the women over a map of the western United States

The WAWH “promotes the interests of women historians both in academic settings and in the field of history generally. It is the the largest of the regional women's historical association in the U.S.” A 2006 site redesign struck a balance between reaching out to scholars comfortable with web technology & members adapting to technology who were turned off by flashy, complicated web sites. Adobe Contribute software simplified in-house editing for the Executive Director. The current redesign uses WordPress to offer a modern look and feel — plus easy in-house editing for a new board member, the Digital Communications Coordinator.

Susan Kullman designed and redesigned the website for the Western Association of Women Historians. She first learned about what the organization wanted to accomplish with a website and then offered suggestions. She sent a contract with a schedule of creation and costs. She met each of the benchmarks and completed the websites on time. When the organization redesigned the website, Susan integrated social media into the new site as well as updating the look and function. I strongly recommend Susan Kullmann.

DoctorGeek really helped us by listening to our needs and understanding who we are. Susan worked closely with our staff, studied our old website, and showed us what was working and what needed a new vision. She helped us understand why we wanted to make changes and then showed us how to get better results. She gave us a design that did what we needed, and that reflected our own individual character. Also, DoctorGeek taught our staff very quickly how to make changes and updates to our website, so that we add new content easily at any time - without risking damage to our overall site. When we have needed new features or customer service, her response has been amazing.

The experience I had with DoctorGeek was gratifying because, finally, I knew that I had found someone who was professional and knowledgeable about the subject after having inquired with numerous other web site designers about their abilities and products. In this age of looking for a quick buck and an absence of loyalty to the customer, it is gratifying to know that there are businesses that still have high standards for quality and workmanship like DoctorGeek.

What do early 21st-century American women hold sacred? Blessed Are These Hands show photographs and tell stories of women from infancy to 80, each holding something that represents her deepest values — along with their reflections about their photo. Featuring Jean Shinoda Bolen, Z Budapest, Pat Fish, Ava Park, Diana Paxson, Susun Weed, and 55 other extraordinary women, the book illustrates women’s spiritual views and practices that center on nature, art, work, hobbies, family bonds, as well as religion.

I am a Realtor and needed to get a Web presence fast. I initially interviewed Susan because I liked the design of her website, and was impressed with her veteran experience as an Internet wizard and web designer. The decision to hire her was an easy one after our interview. We found that she asks a lot of questions and also listens very well. She provided helpful feedback on our ideas for what we wanted on our site. After a short time and a bit of work on our part, to come up with our content, she produced a great starter website for me. All of this was done at a very affordable price!

She took the time to meet with me personally and go over all the details. Susan explained things to me clearly and professionally.

Sometimes it is difficult to articulate the vision one has of what they want in their website. Strange as it may seem, a website really gives a living identity to an organization that has a personality and communicates to the world about what it is your organization does. DoctorGeek's step by step process of web design really helps sharpen the focus of what you want your website to convey to the community and the tone with which that is expressed. Susan really helped me to turn the website I envisioned into a functional reality.

DoctorGeek has helped me tremendously. I started out thinking I could do it myself with one of the ‘build your own’ sites! I kept loading information on it and after awhile I recognized it was not good. In fact, it was terrible. DoctorGeek helped me to focus, ‘sift and winnow’ the content and make it all work. Within a week I had a number of new clients! I was amazed. Her computer knowledge coupled with her business sense made it seem easy. She is above all understandable, patient and willing to persevere until it is something you are content with. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to build a website.
