“By working with us closely and helping us communicate our strategic goals and message, Joyce and her associates have achieved everything we were hoping for in a website and more. It tells our story powerfully in the design, tone, custom photos and text. We are thrilled by the site’s functionality, practicality and beauty. The site gives a great first impression that has attracted new donors, volunteers and board members and has kept our staff and regulars engaged.”
