About Hilltop

How it started

Here’s my first office! It’s in my sunroom. I was a stay at home mom and my kids were taking a 3 hour nap in the afternoon. I decided to make a website for the company my husband works for during that time and check it out – all I needed was a laptop, YouTube and Google. Turns out I loooovvveeedd creating websites! 

2017 WordPress

And I found out that the best platform to build websites on was WordPress. So I knew my next site had to be a WordPress one. I watched this 2.5 hour YouTube video and followed along with the guy every step of the way. And I used what I learned to create a website for my very first client. And I cried. And it was hard. But it was also exhilarating. And I’ve been on team WordPress ever since. 

2018 First WordCamp

So then I started to get a little more business and realized I needed WordPress training, so I attended a WordCamp, which is like a school for WordPressers. I was inspired by the other freelance business owners to grow my business. So I joined networking organizations, put myself out there, and it actually worked. Hilltop Marketing was open for business! 

2022 Thincubator Refinery Program

In the summer of 2022, I completed the thINCubator Refinery program, learning best practices for startups and how to launch my business for success.
