I feel very fortunate to have met Joana and have her work on my site. It was hard to trust someone with it but after talking to her and seeing that she was very knowledgeable, had a keen interest in helping my website be the best it could be, and being very business-like in her approach, I was almost convinced to give her the reins. What eventually sold me was that I could see she was someone I could work closely with. I’m confident in recommending Joana for any web design project mainly because she made me feel we were on the same side.

I’d like to give a big thanks to Joana. I like the fact that she took the time to interview me, understand what my goals were and transcribed into a beautiful 4-page document. I highly recommend that you use Joana for any writing/blog/wikipedia pages that you may need.
