Hi, I’m Emily. I have been providing website management services to businesses and nonprofit organizations since 2012. I also provide virtual and in-person WordPress training throughout the United States. When I first started learning WordPress, I did it the way many of you have tried: without help. After almost two years of persistent effort, I had a solid handle on the platform. Finally, I felt confident about building a website for someone else! I am the author of Unlocking WordPress, a guide filled with practical tips for WordPress beginners. My path to mastering WordPress led me down a road of trial and error, a bad experience with an affordable website designer, launching my own web design agency, and meeting all kinds of business owners. I love helping business owners leverage technology to increase sales and social impact. I write, speak, and coach full-time.
Hi, I’m Rachel. I lead the Website Management team at Emily Journey & Associates. Shortly after graduating from The Ohio State University in 2012 with a BA in geography, I began working with EJ&A. I work with small businesses to improve marketing strategy and provide WordPress support. I enjoy having a creative, diverse role that helps small businesses and nonprofits grow. I love living in Columbus, Ohio with my husband Matt.
