My name is Shawna, and I'm the Website Designer and Developer behind Paradise West Websites. I live in beautiful Qualicum Beach, BC, with my husband and two energetic, fun, and crazy little boys.
My goal is to create a unique, custom-designed website for your company to help you stand out in the big world of small business.
I like to say I went from being a lab geek to a computer nerd, because my first career was as a Medical Laboratory Technologist working at Vancouver General Hospital for 9 years. It is there where I discovered my love for coding after being assigned to assist with the development of our lab information system.
After moving to Qualicum Beach in 2013 (and never looking back, I must add), I started to explore other career opportunities which would allow me to display both my creative and my technical side while being able to stay at home with my young boys. I started dipping my toes into Website Design and Development and immediately fell in love with it. I feel that my perfectionist trait, along with my strong technical skills and eye for design make me a great pick as your Website Designer and Developer.
After taking several courses at BCIT for Website Development, I officially started my Qualicum Beach Website Design company in 2018 to cater to small, local businesses that are in need of a simple, yet eye-catching and functional, website. I look forward to working with you to create the website you've been dreaming of!
