Hi, I’m Rosie! I’m a front-end web developer specializing in WordPress. Before I started freelancing, I worked as a full-time developer for a marketing and web design company with hundreds of clients. This gave me experience building and maintaining a wide variety of websites, ranging from personal blogs to online stores to large corporate sites.

I rode a bicycle 1900 miles from Vancouver, Canada down the coast to San Diego.


I hiked 745 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, beginning at the Mexican border and ending abruptly at the start of the Sierra Nevada when I fell on hard-packed snow and could barely walk for five months.


I hiked the Hayduke Trail, which meanders 800+ miles across the Colorado Plateau, passing through all five of Utah's national parks and the Grand Canyon. Then I hiked the northernmost 1150 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail and wrapped up the summer by hiking the 486-mile Colorado Trail.


I rode a bicycle 5400 miles across the country and then hiked 800 miles down the length of Arizona from Utah to Mexico.
