I have been working with websites since 2013. But I’ve been designing stuff since I was small. I grew up in theatre, learning how to collaborate with others, work toward a common goal, and create something that is larger than the sum of its parts. In 2013, I started teaching myself web design and coding out of books. My first job as a junior designer introduced me to WordPress, one of my favorite things ever. I also learned about SEO, social media marketing, website security, and just how to run a business well. I struck out and started my own business (Allie Nimmons Creative) in 2016. I’ve been a speaker at WordCamp Miami where I spoke on how I train my clients. I have a second business called BEAM that focuses on web design for non-profits. And I also proudly serve on the board for the non-profit Always Mothers Luncheon as the Internet Marketing Manager. I live with my novelist boyfriend in North Miami and I love coffee, creepy podcasts, RPG video games, and stray cats.
