Melanie Wilson

Website Designer/Developer

Melanie Wilson started designing and developing websites in 1999 during her last year of college, and by 2005 she was working full time as a web developer. Since then, she has created websites for schools, financial institutions, artists, non-profits, local businesses and many other.
What she enjoys most about building websites is creating online success stories! Her continued passion about web development is driven by the positive energy and opportunities that the right solutions can bring for people. These days she finds herself pairing many clients with WordPress, Elementor and Crocoblock. With this combination of tools, a developer has the ability to easily, inexpensively, and quickly produce highly functional websites with fully customizable designs. Most importantly; with a little training, the end user often finds the editor very easy to use for their own ongoing content updates.

 Melanie’s background includes extensive work with responsive design & development, HTML (all flavors), JS, JQuery, CSS, PHP, SEO, ADA accessibility, and User Interface design & development. Her favorite way to work is with a team of other enthusiastic specialists (like those here at Lagos), so that the entire flow of a client’s online presence is accurately and consistently presented across all platforms, and we can accomplish those success stories together!
