About me

My name is Krista Simmons I’m a freelance web developer and web designer based in San Diego. My passions lie within music, snowboarding, technology and basically everything involving the internet. My technical skills include (but not limited to) building custom Wordpress & Shopify websites for small to medium sized businesses. Currently my toolbelt consists of PHP, HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Vue.js and Ruby on Rails. From my time working at digital agencies, I have gained knowledge in User Experience (UX) design, ADA/Web Accessibility best practices and search engine optimization (SEO). My work as a freelance web developer stands apart because of my ability to explain and execute technical concepts simply, while maintaining a friendly & productive relationship with clients. Let’s work together.

Testimonials

Julien Brandt CEO, Organik SEO
Not only is Krista a talented front-end web developer but she is also a great team player with a fantastic attitude. During Krista’s time at Organik SEO she played a key roll in developing and deploying WordPress websites. She worked hand in hand with the rest of the Organik team to develop custom Wordpress themes, create UX audits, and improve existing client websites. She is also very adept and quick to learn anything that isn’t already part of her skillset. Krista would be a great addition to any web design agency or company looking for a talented web designer and developer!

Cameron Hermens Lead Web Developer, Organik SEO
During her time at Organik SEO, Krista demonstrated a passion for web development and a strong desire to continually learn and grow. Despite having modest experience in WordPress development when she arrived, Krista showcased an exemplary ability to learn best practices and new programming techniques with ease. We were able to provide her with minimal project management guidance and she was able to develop elegant solutions for a variety of clients and problem solving challenges.I highly recommend Krista as a full stack web developer, and encourage anyone looking for an individual with a passion for the work she does to strongly consider her.
