WebDevStudios (WDS) is growing, and we have added new talent to our roster of skilled professionals. Get to know the people behind the scenes (including me!). Here are the latest team members to join us.
Ashley Harrison, Project Manager
Ashley became a fan and user of WordPress over eight years ago when she realized that web development and graphic design were great sources of income in college. Coming from a start-up agency, Ashley gained experience in project management, web development, design & branding, marketing, and event management. Always up for a challenge, Ashley is always willing to step out of her comfort zone to execute any idea a client musters up. She has a passion for creating a seamless and outstanding experience for her clients and team.
Ashley is the current President of Riverside.IO, a non-profit tech co-working space. She lives in Southern California and enjoys space exploration, yoga, traveling, painting and caring for her new puppy Marley.
Victoria Land, Project Manager
With a background in design, marketing and tech, Victoria brings a unique blend of creative and analytical skills to the mix.
In addition to project management expertise, Victoria has a background in design, content management and training. Before joining the team at WebDevStudios, Victoria was a project manager for NIC, Inc. and Merck & Co., Inc. Throughout her career, she’s been a problem solver — one who focuses on delivering the best customer experience by balancing client needs and project deadlines.
Victoria has worked with a diverse list of customers and has led redesign efforts on high-profile websites for the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry and most-notably Pennsylvania’s official state website, PA.gov.
While completing her master’s degree, Victoria became enthralled with using WordPress and the open source community it provides. She attends WordCamps as often as possible and always comes away re-energized and inspired.
When she’s not helping her husband renovate their early 1800 house in historic midtown, Harrisburg, PA, she can be found visiting flea markets, thrift stores and junk shops and sharing her adventures on her blog (tourdethrift.com).
Laura Coronado, Communications Specialist
Addicted to shoes, sales, and mascara, I run a fashion blog at LollieShopping.com. I credit WDS Director of Products, John Hawkins, as the inspiration behind my move from Blogger.com to WordPress. I also consider him and WDS WordPress Support Technician, Russell Aaron, among my dearest friends, having volunteered my PR and content management services to both of them, as they have led Las Vegas WordCamp events. When I applied for the position of Communications Specialist, both gentlemen championed my efforts, and I am eternally grateful.
Aside from wearing cute outfits, I am passionate about communications. I love to write blog posts, articles, video scripts, press releases, media pitches, email newsletters, social media and web content, and basically anything that informs and influences. I get excited about producing content that motivates a reader to take action.
When I’m not working, blogging, or shopping, I can be found out and about enjoying openings, tastings, and social events in Las Vegas, where I currently reside, or visiting Central and South Texas to be with my family. I also volunteer my PR and social media skills for Beep Baseball, which is baseball for visually impaired athletes. And, I freelance as a fashion writer for the “Las Vegas Travel Guide” of the Los Angeles Times. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, and consider both Austin and Brownsville, Texas my hometowns. Follow me on Twitter and Instagram.
