My real name is Gillian Owen (Gigglian is just my favorite nick name). My focus in life is eCommerce Consulting, especially for Magento.
I started designing and coding websites when I was only 12 years old. It began with a little website that I made for my school’s library. Once I realized how easy HTML was I dove into making everything from journal layouts to websites for my friends. Eventually as I got busier with school and work I stopped producing regular work. Oddly enough once I graduated college with my bachelors in Molecular Cellular Developmental Biology, I ended up right back where I had left off. With no decent jobs in MCDB I took a local job working for an online eCommerce/Marketing company. While my primary role was setting up and developing their in house customer service team, I also ended up managing everything from Email Marketing to the Magento based eCommerce stores. It was a great first job to get me back into web design and development. Now I work for Customer Paradigm as a Project Engineer, where I specialize in Project Management, eCommerce Solutions and Marketing.
Everyday at work is another opportunity for me to grow my knowledge base. I have hundreds of Magento clients, and my experiences with them have taught me a great deal about what are the best techniques are for selling products on the web. On an average day I help plan, troubleshoot and discover new resources and solutions for my clients.
That’s why you can trust me to help you with growing your business!
I also offer my skills and experience to non-profit organizations on a volunteer basis. I only work for organizations that I feel are making a positive difference in the world, so please do not contact me if you run a scam or discriminatory organization. If you need help with your non-profit organization’s website or marketing please contact me here.
