Cathy Zhang 张凯茜 WordPress Designer.

I used to be a Marketing Specialist before coming to Canada. I had 6 years’ experience in planning, scheduling and supervising comprehensive marketing programs involving a wide range of distribution, business partners, technical support, media and sales channels.
After immigration to Canada, I focus my strength on Data Management while working as a Database Administrator. I hold certificates in Microsoft SQL Server – Database Development and SAS Base Program, specializing in data collection, cleaning, analysis and reporting. Besides focusing on back-end database, I began to invest more time on front-end application. So I become a WordPress designer.

A good application should have an user-friendly interface with built-in validation and logic in order to enable DBA to do analysis and reporting easily without putting much effort on cleaning the incomplete and illogical data. I finished the Interactive Media Management program in Algonquin College and graduated as being in the Dean’s Honors List for outstanding academic achievement.

I began to build WordPress websites using Bootstrap, PHP and JavaScript. Database knowledge has helped me dig more into the correlation between front-end design and back-end database, both of which are equally important in the web development process. Becoming a full stack developer and WordPress designer seems an exciting path.

My husband is an economist in Global Affairs. My daughter is in Grade 6 and my son is in Grade 3.  View my website Cathy Zhang 张凯茜 Portfolio website for more details or go to Portfolio section on this website to view my works.

I love to use WordPress and Bootstrap to build website and found it convenient to use Bootstrap as the styling framework for a WordPress theme. Bootstrap provides me effective tools to do theme development. Thousands of JavaScript/jQuery plugins are already integrated with Bootstrap. There are huge amounts of online tutorials, demos, forums, etc. on explaining how to integrate Bootstrap with WordPress. I am always able to find answers on the internet when I have issue doing web design and development. It is important that WordPress designers have their own well-designed and thoroughly-thought template for use as a starting point for their projects.
