  • What makes me a Wix Expert?
    As a Wix Expert, I have spent over a decade building websites using Wix as my preferred platform. I gained extensive experience by creating websites for my entrepreneurial friends and developing my own portfolio site, honing my skills along the way. When the COVID-19 pandemic caused the coffee company I was designing for to shut down, I seized the opportunity to focus on building my own business, which had always been a dream of mine. In 2021, I decided to join the Wix partnership program to further enhance my expertise and help other entrepreneurs bring their dream websites to life. Through my partnership with Wix, I have gained access to valuable resources, training, and support, allowing me to stay up-to-date with the latest developments and advancements in the platform. As a result, I have reached the top partner level within the Wix partnership program as a Legend, showcasing my dedication and proficiency in working with Wix. I am committed to continuous learning and stay updated with Wix's new developments through webinars, ensuring that I am always equipped with the latest knowledge and expertise. With my entrepreneurial mindset, extensive experience, and recognition as a top-level partner, I am well-equipped to provide the best solutions to my clients and deliver exceptional results in building websites with Wix.
