I’m a web designer and digital marketer with 16 years of experience. I built my first website in 2000 and have been working in the industry ever since.
Today I’m the Director of Digital Marketing for Flexible Systems in Hauppauge, New York. I work remotely from Vermont with a team of programmers, graphic designers, search engine optimization specialists and PPC marketers. We use technology to coordinate our work from four states: Vermont, Montana, Tennessee and New York.
One of the things I love most about web design & digital marketing is how the technology used in these industries is constantly changing. I strongly believe in having a growth mindset and am always on the lookout for new learning opportunities.
Some of my current skills include:
These are a few of my favorite web projects. They include B2B and B2C clients, representing projects that ranged from straightforward website design to in-depth overhauls that included market research, copywriting, design and search engine optimization. Sites designed for Flexible Systems were worked on collectively with Flexible’s digital marketing team.
In my spare time I enjoy using original photos, stock photography, textures and digital painting to create art. I also dabble a bit in photography when I get the chance.
When I’m not at my desk, I volunteer as a Cub Scouts den leader and as a science teacher for the Four Winds Nature Institute of Vermont. I also love spending time in nature and learning new outdoor skills.
Ariela excels at keeping our Digital Marketing team focused and motivated, and her positive attitude promotes a creative environment where everyone feels valued. Ariela’s insight and knowledge inspire me to keep striving to learn more, and I am very fortunate to be working with her.
I have worked with Ariela at Flexible Systems for the past 4 years. Not only is she one of the most reliable people I have ever worked with, but she is also the most organized. She’s kept our team on track and on time with numerous, tight-deadline web projects. She’s extremely knowledgeable about WordPress, website design and online marketing, and creates amazing websites. On top of that, she’s a great teacher and always makes herself available to help with tough client issues.
I have partnered with Ariela on several projects ranging from small to large and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is well organized, detail oriented and very focused on customer satisfaction. I was extremely impressed with her ability to listen to a client’s vision and turn that vision into reality. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
I recently worked with Ari on a blog ‘tweak’. I had some *very specific* ideas that I wanted implemented and not only did she go above and beyond my expectations, she did it quickly and with much patience! I have worked with designers in the past and this was the most pleasant and effective experience I have ever had! Ari also took my ideas and added her creativity making the whole design so much better.
Ari provides exceptional support for my Wordpress website. She responds quickly to my needs and has never failed to respond to an email in a timely manner. She keeps my site running efficiently and smoothly, and is extremely knowledgeable in her line of work. My site is in good hands and I truly couldn’t ask for better service.
We were extremely pleased, not only with the final product that Flexible’s Digital Marketing team put together, but also with the process of working with them. From our first conversations with Ariela & Linda, we saw that they were professional and capable… we really felt as if they cared about our specific needs…When Ariela showed us what the design team had come up with, we were amazed at how little tweaking the design needed…Ariela didn’t let a single detail fall by the wayside. She and Anthony worked diligently to make the site work for our specific needs….We were very blessed to work with this fine company, and we look forward to our continuing relationship.
Flexible Systems has been a joy to work with, from the moment we decided to redo our site, all the way through to the end of the process, Ariela, Linda and Anthony have been professional, patient and quick to respond. They made a process that seemed so overwhelming and daunting seem so smooth and almost effortless. It seemed like anything we asked for – poof- it was done! We had a dream and a hope and a vision of what we wanted our website to be and Flexible brought it to life for us! I am so pleased with the results!
The team of Ariela, Linda, and Kerri at Flexible Systems did an incredible job transforming our old website into a modern, visually stunning, and user friendly site. We immediately received positive feedback from visitors upon launch. Moreover, our volunteer organization which provides youth athletic programs to many under privileged children and families has limited resources, and the talented Flexible team was extremely supportive and responsive to our needs displaying attentiveness, patience, creativity, and attention to detail. We look forward to working with them on future projects.
