Designs by Christine Otten
About this pro
In short, Chris is amazing. Her designs are cutting edge, professional, and client specific. Chris designed my first website in 2009. And through the years, she has let me know when a design update was needed to keep up with the times. My website never has that dated feel. It always looks new and fresh. Her assistance with SEOs has grown our client base from the USA to include the entire world. Honestly, this is just the tip of the iceberg concerning the accolades that I would like to list for Chris. There isn't any other person I trust more to help me maintain the gateway of my livelihood. Thank-you Chris for all you do.Jul 16, 2013
Extremely helpful & patient with all of my needs & wants. Took the time to really sit down with me & made sure I was completely satisfied with my website. Not only does she continue to help me with everything I throw at her, but the website is exactly what I wanted and more!Jun 14, 2013
