Currently I am maintaining the website for Piper Glen Women's Club. I also happen to be a member, so it was a natural fit.

Website and Blog became one, and suddenly I found myself a blog writer, website designer and maintainer, photographer, marketer and their own personal IT department. While all of that was going on, I also maintained and developed:
