Meet Jami Howard

Jami Howard used to want to teach Jazzercise, but realized she liked ice cream too much. Instead she became a Facebook wizard, social-media specialist, writer and professional graphic designer. A self-professed techno-nerd, she is also a single mom with a penchant for snark, profanity and mocktacular writing, as evidenced by her extremely popular site Datewrecks. Such qualities have traditionally translated to huge popularity on the internet. She carries her torch on her personal blog, Freak Bacon which is not actually about bacon at all. She likes craft beer and making fun of people (but not you) (okay maybe you) (probably).

As something of a Facebook addict (ask her fiance), Jami knows her craft. She’s also learned WordPress from the inside out and the Suffusion theme has surrendered to her superior abilities. As a talented graphic designer with five years of experience in print media, she’s got an eye for what looks stellar and she’s using that keen ability to create dynamic and engaging web pages using WordPress.

She’s ready to give your business or brand a social media makeover but more importantly, will teach you HOW to manipulate these social media tools to your advantage. Having no interest in being a web designer or a web host, she seeks to guide you to implement your ideas online, show you how to master them and then she wants to watch you ride off into the sunset.

In today’s market of open source everything, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to control and manipulate every single space that you occupy online. Email Jami with questions
