Hello, I’m Elle and I live outside of beautiful Wilmington, NC, just 15 minutes from the beach! I have my Bachelors of Fine Arts, specializing in Web Design, and I am in love with Shopify! My favorite thing about web design is the instant gratification both the client and I receive when a unique and beautiful new site goes from an idea to a reality and starts generating sales overnight.
I have been an entrepreneur most of my life and started at a young age trying to find creative ways to make money, whether it was a lemonade stand with my sister or creating and selling a family newsletter. I love working with small business owners because they have such amazing passion for their work. I worked in an ad agency before and while it was a great job, I wanted more freedom/flexibility to make decisions about both my work and my lifestyle. After completing my journey from 9-5 to having my own business, I knew I needed to help others do the same and Curious Themes was born. My goal is to empower you through my guides and ecourses but also to inspire you through my blog, which will give you a behind-the-scenes look at my business and personal successes & struggles with things like the ever-elusive work/life balance.
I also have a huge passion for animals and love being outdoors with my family. I have two big dogs, Riley and Luna, who are convinced they are lap dogs. Cuddling up with the dogs and my husband, Bryan, is my happy place! Although dogs are my favorite animal my spirit animal is a Spider. What is a spirit animal you ask? Find out more in this blog post and learn why we ask all our one-on-one clients about their spirit animal!
