I started Jem Website Design because I wanted exactly what you want: FREEDOM.
I was on maternity leave (although if I’m honest, I don’t think I ever really planned to return to what I was doing before). I wanted the flexibility to spend time with our kids while they’re little, personal fulfilment, and control over my future.
I had worked in marketing in various roles since graduating from Uni and in all these positions, I had somehow ended up working on the businesses websites. Regardless of the technologies or content management systems that they used, I was always able to quickly familiarise myself and adapt my skillset in order to get the task completed.
Fast forward 12+ years, and I’ve helped hundreds of business owners, bloggers, and entrepreneurs build a web presence so they can land their ideal clients, make more money, and reach their goals faster.
So IF YOU WANT;
I’ve always been into computers. My dad was an earlier adapter of any new technology, so when I was little and computers were just becoming a thing, I was always waiting in the wings to see what I could play with next. I remember as a kid always tinkering about and making games using BASIC code, sitting in front of a computer then (as is now) is still my happy place. Studying Marketing at uni and loving all things consumer behaviour, it just seemed like a natural progression to combine the two passions and Website Design does just that!
I live in Wollongong, with three pretty awesome kids and my husband of 20 years. I love chocolate, coffee, wine, walking my sausage dog, long lunches with girlfriends, tramping through Mt Keira and riding pillion (not motivated enough to get my own licence) on a motorcycle.
