  • Bachelors, Early Childhood Education, Wright State University

  • Founded SIOD in 2009 to help small & medium-sized businesses fix their digital presence


Nearly 15 years after I built my first website for Young’s Jersey Dairy, I started Shout it Out Design to help other small business owners solve their digital marketing problems. With a focus on truly listening to our customers, we’ve grown this company from one client to over 100 small businesses and organizations all over the world. These people trust us year in and out to do the right thing for them, all the time.

I want our clients to focus their time and resources into their business, not worrying about whether their website is mobile-optimized or if their social media marketing is connecting with the right audience. The more our clients can spend time making their business better for their customers, the more successful we will both be in the long run.

We want to form long-term partnerships with our clients – constantly evolving our marketing plans to suit the ever-evolving digital marketplace and the constant evolution of a small business.
