I am so pleased with the A+ service that I received from Susan during the recent implementation of a major online project.

She was timely, attentive, creative, and flexible. I never had to wonder if things would get done right. And in fact, my expectations were repeatedly surpassed. (And I didn't have to break the bank in the process!) I highly recommend Susan for your next online project.

Susan has redesigned my website twice, and now I'm spoiled for anyone else.

She is creative, personable, smart, and has an eye for the small details that make the whole sing. Every time we work together, she goes above and beyond. Trust me, Susan is the one you've been looking for.

Not only is she efficient, she is able to help find solutions that work. I’m so grateful for her ideas and quick implementations. She’s a delight to work with.

Jolene Underwood

Founder, Rise Up Writers

Susan was able to quickly evaluate my situation and brainstormed with me to create tangible and realistic "to-do's" ...

all the while honoring my personal style in growing a ministry. While the practical ideas she provided proved valuable the time in prayer together was life giving. 

Carey Bailey

Susan brought her eye for detail and design to my website update.

She listened to my vision and ideas and matched it with her own expertise. I love the final result because it reflects me. Susan was a delight to work with every step of the way.

Susan took my website and transformed it into a place that was inviting and appealing to visitors.

She went above and beyond merely design elements, and helped me craft the wording of individual pages so that I could optimize a visitor's experience. I am deeply grateful for her expertise and help.

Susan is exceptional at identifying the unique needs of her clients,

and then designing a beautiful, thoughtful site that is mobile responsive and with effective SEO. Because of Susan’s dedication and attention to detail our site is, “…immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine.”

Pamela Piquette

President, Chronic Joy Ministries

Working on a website project team headed by Susan is any creative's dream.

Susan is a confident two-heads are better than one team leader, and this girl GETS IT DONE. She lays a great framework in which the artistic is streamlined to the web to produce a beautiful finished product. She is a pro at creative interaction and brainstorming and a breath of fresh air.

Amber Weigand-Buckley

Graphic artist, editor and art director for Leading Hearts magazine., Barefaced Journals

I couldn’t be happier with my website!

It is a wonderful reflection and representation of who I am and what I care about. Susan not only created a finished project I can be proud of in a much shorter time than I thought possible, but she walked me through the process as my partner — breaking things down into manageable chunks and small assignments I could complete.

Susan is patient, efficient, kind, intuitive, incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. My new website is so much more than a website to me — it’s a launching pad as I enter with new confidence into this season of my vocation. I will tell everyone I know about my wonderful experience with Susan!

Writer & Speaker ~ The Power of Story

Susan is amazing!

I'm not sure how she does it... First she reads your mind, then she makes improvements to what you were vaguely thinking you wanted, then she makes a few clicks and POW! There it is.

I love every little thing she added to my site. Thanks so much, Susan!

Shannon Popkin

Writer & Speaker ~ Control Girl

Susan's skill as a designer is matched only by her intuitive sense of what her client is trying to accomplish.

Patiently walking me toward the look and functionality I wanted on my website, Susan was willing to try many options and make thoughtful suggestions to get me to my end goal. She's personable and engaging, making the whole process more fun than I expected.

Ingrid Lochamire

Susan has the amazing gift of hearing my thoughts and ideas and turning them into a tight, cohesive plan of action.

With a sincere desire to see my platform grow, she takes the time to understand my vision with the skills and insight needed to accomplish it through web design and social media marketing. Whether we are brainstorming or working through a technical process, I appreciate how she speaks to me like a friend and patiently educates me along the way.

Susan listens to her clients and helps create a site that matches their vision.

She redesigned my site and was a wealth of knowledge when it came to ideas and things we could do. Her sense of style, color and fonts was very accurate in regards to my taste and desires.  In addition, she has been a valuable source of ideas, information and inspiration in regards to ways I can build my VA business.

God knew I would need a team that would help me connect all the moving parts of ministry, and Susan heard my heart.

She listened to my story and gave my dreams a beautiful place to land. She is a great coach and cheerleader, always excited to hear my ideas and execute them no matter how many times I might change them. She is a creative hand-holder that takes on the overwhelming and frustrating parts of web design and transforms them to tell your story.

Janice Broyles



Christian Women's Events
Susan has a clear understanding of the Scriptures 

and is a spiritually gifted Bible teacher.  She is able to address real-life issues from a biblical perspective both directly and transparently. Her Bible studies and personal devotions, which she has written for our church, have always been fresh, practical, timely and from the heart.  I am grateful for her commitment and contribution to the fellowship of First Baptist Church of Roanoke.

Bryan Smith

Senior Pastor, First Roanoke

Susan has a passion for the Word of God that is contagious! 

Her presentations provided both information and inspiration;  she  draws from the wellspring of both  a strong foundation of bible study and an intimate walk with the Lord. Our women thoroughly enjoyed her time among us at our Women’s Retreat; she was truly a full participant in the event and engaged our women on many levels throughout the weekend.  I strongly recommend her as a retreat speaker!

Kim Worrell

Women’s Ministry Director, Church of the Holy Spirit

Words come alive on a page when they’re prompted by the Spirit of God

and personalized by a gifted writer and speaker/teacher. That’s the blend that communicates so effectively in Susan’s ministry.

Knowing her passion for the Word of God and the expressed word for mankind, I can confidently say she “Hears It, Lives It, Writes It, Speaks It”, and that’s a combo that hits the mark!

Martha Barger

Director of Women’s Enrichment, First Roanoke

We could not have picked anyone better! Susan was inspirational, encouraging and knowledgeable as she delivered the Word from The Lord to our group. Her way of speaking and teaching was easily understood. The quality that stood out to me the most about Susan was her warmth! She made immediate connections with our group and participated with all the activities! She was “One of the Gang”. I highly recommend Susan to anyone wanting a messager from God that is delivered with His Love.

Sheron Smith, Women of Worth Conference Coordinator
Journey Church, Roanoke, VA

Susan has such a beautiful spirit and was an inspiration to the ladies at our spring banquet. The message was so uplifting and encouraging, and Susan was a wonderful blessing to all of us. I know God is truly working and speaking through her.  The next morning the church was a buzz of excitement as to how she had blessed each of us. I had not seen this kind of excitement in our women or our church family in long time.

Linda Thomas, Director of Women’s Ministry
Diamond Hill Baptist Church, Moneta VA

Susan was recommended to me as a first-class speaker for our annual church Women’s Retreat. She, indeed, was nothing short of inspiring and uplifting. Susan captured the audience with her energy and her passion for Jesus Christ. I believe that every woman walked away with special instruction on how to hear God’s word and apply it to her life. Everyone loved her and we hope to have her back.

Anne C. Hoge, Women’s Retreat Committee chairman
Covenant Presbyterian Church, Roanoke VA

Being in Bible Study with Susan is a blessing. Her walk of faith is secured by a foundation of biblical knowledge. She builds her life on this foundation, and her roles as a wife, mother, friend and teacher are solidified and personified as she lives out her faith.  She challenges us to take our study of the Word to the next level, balancing her passion with patience and understanding. Over the years we’ve studied, laughed and cried together. Most of all we’ve learned to love the Lord while loving each other.

Juli Murden, Bible study participant
