I really appreciate the warmth and care you bring to things. I've so enjoyed getting to team up with you. I completely agree that at the core of websites are people and their communities. It's that connection and care that creates memorable experiences and inspires people who visit the site to act. May 2020

Testimonial from Dave Hansmann, Hansmann Construction (client since 2012, just moved over to Squarespace)
Working with Jenn over these past few weeks on our new site has been a real pleasure. She is on top of her game and really cares about the end product and the success of her clients. Her enthusiasm and mindfulness makes the creative process enjoyable and fun. It has been less than a week since our new site went live and I’ve already received a very nice compliment from a potential client interested in using our services saying, “she was very impressed with our website”. So big thanks to Jenn for all her help in taking our business’s appearance on the web to the next level. - May 2019
Testimonial from Dee Blaylock, Dementia Home Care Consultants (my first Squarespace client)
Jennifer at Snapdragon was exceptional. She is friendly, knowledgeable and cares about perfection! Her work was impeccable. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to come along and build my website for me! She listened to my needs. I not only have an awesome website for my new business I made a new friend! She’s an overall special person and I give her 5 stars! Highly recommended! - April 2019

Testimonial from Charolotte Wood, Family Giving Tree
Thank you for all the hard work and heavy lifting you did in getting our revamped website up and running! You are a gem! The Holiday Wish Drive as a huge success and as I mentioned I my email, the website was so much easier to use and update. Thank you for teaching me so much and for being patient as I advance along the learning curve. All the best to you in 2018! - January 2018
Testimonial from David Haedtler, Productive Teamwork
Jennifer took my existing (stale and out-of-date) web site and in no time at all made it much more visually pleasing and dynamic. She also familiarized me with how the Joomla interface works, taught me how to make simple changes myself, and is instantly available to help me whenever I forget how to do something or do something stupid. Working with Jennifer is seamless and simple. I can't recommend her highly enough! - August 2014
Testimonial from Annie Gleason, Get A Love Life
Jenn transformed my slow, obsolete website into a wonderful, user friendly and fun website. Not only that, she maintains it for a very reasonable fee.
I came to Jenn because my site had been hacked--you never want to experience this!!--partly because my former webmaster wasn't on top of the updates needed to maintain security on my website.
Jenn really understands the structure and functionality of the back end of a website. She's a fantastic teacher--great at translating web language into English, and very patient. She has great tools and is super quick at what she does, so if you don't have time to do something, she'll take care of it in a flash.
She will tell you whether something is possible--and will warn you if it's going to cost too much, and give you great alternatives.
She stays within budget--when she created my website, we actually got in under budget and used the rest for future security updates, etc. She is super-creative and efficient. Not to mention fun to work with.
I've recommended her fantastic work to lots of people and will continue to do so. August 2014
Testimonial from Karen Anderson, California Jump$tart
"Jenn has managed our website for almost two years now, and we're (or we at California Jump$tart are) very happy. She has migrated it, redesigned it, and kept it current with Joomla releases. She has all the technical expertise, plus is very patient working with busy people who don't understand the web world and gently reminding us of things we need to do. We've come to trust that she'll keep us informed, and if we need something done she's right on it. She's also a pleasant, friendly person to work with, which is a nice bonus." July 2014
Testimonial from Cynthia Glinka, Dance with Glinka
"When it comes to websites (a entrepreneur's window to the world) one needs a presence with perfection.
That's Jennifer Gress of Snapdragon Services. I was introduced to her services via my long-time website designer who chose a different path. Like finding a new hairdresser, I was in the wind on which direction to take.
After connecting with Jenn - I felt comfortable and confident that she was the one to manage my website. Joomla genius! I never wanted to go the way of WordPress which looks the same on every site I visit. Having to migrate and update with Joomla, with some concern, it was a breeze. Easy to understand, quick turn-around, and guidance on how to initiate changes myself. She takes care of the 'backend' and I'm assured that my site is gaining momentum with the increase I've noticed in my business.
Jennifer Gress is a Joomla master!" July 2014
Testimonial from Rachel Silver Charon, Ph.D.
"I have had the great pleasure of having Jenn maintain my website these past two years. I consider myself "tech-challenged," and very much appreciate Jenn's professionalism, kindness, and her efficiency in answering questions, explaining needed website maintenance, and continuing to help me expand and grow my online presence. I am so grateful I found her and pray she never retires! As a busy professional myself, Jenn's work on my behalf allows me to focus on my work instead of worrying about website problems or how to upload a new article to my website. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have if you are considering working with Jenn. She is wonderful to work with, reliable, affordable and an all-around good person." July 2014
Testimonial from Zeena Janowsky
"Jennifer took over my site maintenance shortly after it was built and has kept my website working ever since. She responds quickly to security and update needs. Jennifer is always friendly and professional." July 2014
