Welcome to Wendy's Pure Canadian Design Blog

Hello and welcome,

My name is Wendy. I am a single mom of 4 (ages 8, 20, 23, and 26). I am a cat lover and owner of three rescued cats (ages 1, 5 and 11).

Do you have a dream job? I found my niche in Web design. I create websites to sell your products and services. Also, I love creating enhanced photos from pictures I take. The ragdoll cat in the background is one of my favourites that I enhanced.

In July 2016, I completed the Enterprise Web and Mobile Development program at triOS College and an internship with Stiller ADT as a Web Developer. (Sept 2014 - July 2016)

Currently I work from home as a freelance web and graphic designer for my business "Pure Canadian Design". I specialize in creating customized, WordPress e-Commerce websites for small and home-based businesses.

Follow me on my journey in Web and Graphic Design.

Getting ready for LAUNCH...

Time is going so fast... I am almost done my Enterprise Web and Mobile Development program at triOS College. My internship will be complete as of July 1st 2016. Some good things come to an end but it's just the beginning for many other great opportunities.

I am looking forward to growing my KW Code Newbs Meet-up and expanding our horizons in that field. I am looking forward to mentoring more Gr.4 - 8 girls through the HackerGrrlz program. I love sharing what I have learned. I love sharing ideas to motivate others towards web development.

I have a desire to learn more...more coding skills, more business skills, more innovative ways to help brighten the future for businesses including my own that I am almost ready to launch.

I've been working on my business and my portfolio for over a year now. And even though the website is online there are still things to do to officially launch "Pure Canadian Design". I am looking forward
to building this business with the right people.

10 years ago, it was only a dream job to be a freelance Web Designer but I am so much closer to the reality of it today than I've ever been. It will take a lot of hard work to really get it going and maybe even a few transformations along the way. But I believe it will be worth it all.

Meanwhile I will be looking for a web design job to further my knowledge and gain more experience in my field. I am looking forward to finding a great job. I will soon be launching myself back into the workforce where I will once again put all of my enthusiasm for web design into a company that will reap the benefits of my hard work and creativity.

I have a desire to help other single moms/dads to find their passions and work they will love. I want to help them overcome their fears and road blocks. I want to motivate them to do what they love to make the money needed to support their family and get off welfare for good. I need to be an example first so for now I will continue my journey step-by-step.

I am nervous and excited all in one for my future. I have come along way in the last year and a half. I believe the best is yet to come.
