Maple Moon Web Design Inc. is owned and run by me, Lorraine McNulty. I moved from England with my family to Port Perry, Ontario in July 2004. I've been developing websites since 1992, yes really that long!
I have a background in science with an Honours Degree in Applied Chemistry from the University of Portsmouth in the UK. So not your typical web design background, well let's face it in 1992 the internet was a baby in diapers! My career started with R&D laboratory roles in the Pharmaceutical & Water Treatment industries. and then I moved into Technical Sales & Support for a major analytical instrument manufacturer. After that, I took on the role of Recruitment Consultant in the Scientific Industry prior to starting my own Web Design company in 1992. I'm a scientist at heart and science got me into web design and I'm happy that it did. My brain is wired to find solutions for problems and that's a great skill to have when working with small businesses.
I've been told I have a knack for explaining things in non-geek talk. I'm not sure about that but we've all experienced that tech person that's tried to waffle on in what seems like a foreign language and it only goes to make us feel overwhelmed and out of our depth. (There's a reason the expression 'mansplain' came about - sorry gentlemen - I know you're not all guilty! ) If needed, I'll hold your hand as much as you need it through our process, but if you want to learn, I'll teach you too! If you just want it done-for-you rather than done-with-you then we've got that covered too!
I've worked with many small businesses and entrepreneurs in the last 29 years and helped them grow their businesses as a result of having a great looking website that works for them and by 'works' I mean makes them money.
I'm proud to say as Maple Moon Web Design Inc we've won the Readers Choice Award for Best Web Design Company for the last 16 years here locally in Ontario but we work with companies all over the world.
But more about me...
In my spare time, I play the saxophone and hockey in the local ladies’ league (obviously not at the same time!). I'm slightly better with the sax than the hockey (I'm an ex-pat Brit remember, not born on skates like most of Canadians) I also compete in a Dragon Boat Festival every year to raise funds for breast cancer research.
I'm married and have two sons who are both avid golfers and who attended school in the USA on NCAA Division 1 golf scholarships. My youngest son graduated in Economics and Finance and is working in the investment sector, whilst my eldest graduated with a Communications Major and is now a Professional Golfer. I couldn't be prouder of them!
My husband has over 30 years experience as a software developer, consultant and business analyst. And yes I am the boss of him!
We also recently added a Bernewfiedoodle puppy called Tank - who is the boss of both of us!
