Hi, I'm Amy Isaman.
I'm a Web Designer and Website Coach who loves both the techie and design side of the online biz world. But more than that, I love working with inspired women to help make their visions and business ideas a successful reality online.
You're a passionate service provider who wants to smile and breathe a sigh of relief every time you visit your online home.
I'm creative, patient, and strategic with a passion for collaborating with and guiding my clients through the design process and development of their digital strategy.
Together, we'll design a site that visitors can easily navigate and interact with.
Not only will you love how your site looks but also how it functions. And, I'll connect all of the technical pieces for you.
If you want to know how it all works, I can teach you, cuz I'm a teacher too. Really! I've spent over 15 years in the classroom, and if I can teach 9th graders how to write and 12th graders how to pass an AP test, I've got your back in the website department.
Teacher to Web Designer? How did that happen?!?
It's been a crazy journey, so let me start at the beginning (where all good stories start).
As a little girl, I dreamed of doing two things when I grew up:
#1) becoming a writer, and
#2) having a business. Yep, "Office" was my favorite thing to "play" with my bestie.
I didn't do either of those things. Instead, I took the safe route and became a teacher and totally stopped writing after I my confidence in my writing chops was completely blown in a college Creative Writing workshop.
Fast forward 20 years, and I finally got my confidence back. Yeah, it took awhile. I also decided to share my writing. It was terrifying, but I launched a little WordPress.com blog, and off I went.
At the time, I'd wanted to start a Creative Writing program at the high school where I taught, but they somehow "forgot" to put the class in the course catalog and gave me another section of 9th graders. So, I started a website for teen writers called Where Teens Write, where teens could share their writing and get some instruction.
I thought, "Hey, I have a little blog. I know WordPress, so sure I can build massive membership thing where a whole bunch of teenagers can login and post their writing, take courses, and interact with one another." (How hard are you laughing right now?!?)
I spent countless hours trying to create it on my own. Major fail. So, I hired a designer, but the site she delivered...wasn’t the one I wanted or needed. It was a dismal experience. I was SO frustrated.
Finally, I found a program that taught me how to build totally custom WordPress websites, offered one-on-one support, and taught me how to code. I created the website that I’d envisioned, and my students and members loved it. I ran that site for five years and learned a TON about websites, branding, and marketing.
Mostly, I learned that I LOVED building the websites and problem solving the tech. Designing and blogging was my favorite part of my teen writer website adventure. This ultimately led to me to working with clients, building sites and saying "hasta la vista, baby" to the classroom.
And here I am at Entwine Web Design offering custom web design and branding as well as website coaching programs, where I've taken all of my experience as an educator and applied it to teaching entrepreneurs who are DIY’ers at heart and really want to develop their online presence themselves.
I finally have a business, AND I write blog posts, web copy, or chapters for my novels every day. It took awhile, but I'm living my childhood dream.
If you're ready for your website, to live YOUR dream, we’ll collaborate closely to get you there and create your online foundation for your business.
It’s your business. Let’s build it, together.
Like many women, I achieve more and reach my goals when I know someone’s got my back (and maybe giving me a little nudge forward every now and then).
Are you ready to stand out and attract the tribe of people you're meant to serve?
There's so much more to creating a website than installing WordPress, choosing a theme, and pressing the Publish button.
It's about creating a website that clearly and authentically conveys who you are, what you do, and who you serve through vibrant branding and clear content.
Whether your starting out on your online entrepreneurial adventure or you've been out there for awhile, you're a change-maker, ready to be seen, ready to serve. Somebody, somewhere is waiting for you.
Let's help them find you.
