The Presenter

Christy Kiltz, workshop presenter


I started taking care of business owners online with web design, hosting & maintenance in 2001. From the beginning, full service and empowering clients were the focus of my work. Today, with my team, I coordinate the solutions needed to help your business grow. Unlike most agencies, my focus is on a partnership with you so that you have a team at your side to help you accomplish your online goals. Simply put - we are truly there "taking care of you online"!

Although my days are spent at a computer, I'm not really a true geek- girl. I love the outdoors—camping, hiking, and water of any kind. I can even enjoy a weekend without a computer or tech gadget. My favorite things include gardening, getting away into the beautiful mountains of Southern Oregon with my hubby, or taking a drive out to the coast.
