No obligations, no fine print & no hard feelings.

Like you, I love what I do. More importantly, I want my customers to love what I do. If you aren't happy with my services for whatever reason, we settle up, shake hands and walk away from the table.

Working with Lori has been a pleasure. When we first began looking into initiating an overhaul of our website, we didn’t know where to begin. Lori helped talk us through the entire process and was very helpful, taking time to understand exactly what we wanted from our new website. Her professionalism, advice and assistance throughout the process were invaluable.

Website Maintenance and Updates

Website maintenance is like any other maintenance you do, weeding your garden, cleaning those gutter spouts, polishing the golf clubs . . well, you get the idea!

Maintaining and updating your site with Sparrowsart is easy. Once we set up your account, all you have to do is send an email with the updated content. I will update your site within a day or two, depending on the complexity.


Too busy to worry about your hosting and domain? Sparrowsart has you covered! Get it all in one place with a handy monthly plan that includes hosting, one annual domain renewal and light maintenance of 15 minutes or less for $15 per month.


$120 for up to 6 hours per month or $30 per hour, whichever fits your needs best. Anything up to half hour is $15.00 and anything over half hour is $30.00. For example, 10 minutes would be $15.00 and 45 minutes would be $30.00.
The $120 monthly maintenance service requires a 12 month commitment and includes optional annual hosting and one domain renewal.

Updating your website is a little like gardening, except you don't get to play in the dirt!

Museum of Nursing History

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The Museum of Nursing History is committed to the preservation and exhibition of historical nursing memorabilia and to educate the nursing community as well as the general public about nursings' past.

The Project:

The museum was interested in a site that they could easily update and showcase their collections of nursing artifacts. We decided on a wordpress site with the Genesis framework and child theme.
Ongoing Services: Maintenance as needed.

What Jane said:

I am a board member of the Museum of Nursing History and have had my RN since 1957. I became active with the museum in 2004. The web site for the museum consisted of several broken links, misinformation, and three different addresses. Need I go on?
This situation, in my opinion, was intolerable. Getting the web site fixed presented its own set of problems with the board. With perseverance, 5 proposals and the recommendation of a satisfied customer, Lori was selected to fix our website. Not an easy task I must say.
In addition, several retired and close to retirement nurses wished to be the content managers. She had to walk us through; do a lot of handholding, furnish some anti-anxiety reassurance (You get the picture). It is hard to believe; here we are working on our web site, adding content and so forth. I invite you to visit the web site Museum of Nursing and see for yourself!
