Wanna Web Design - Cindy McQueen
Wanna Web Design is owned and operated by Cindy (DeVogel) McQueen. Cindy saw a need in the community for an HTML programmer to help local businesses update their websites. In 2008, Cindy started her own business and called it Wanna Web Design.
But we need to go back to the beginning…. to Toronto where Cindy started her career:
Senior Programmer / Analyst
Cindy started working at Royal (Sun Alliance) Insurance Company as a Junior Programmer. Over the next 6 years she worked her way up to Senior Programmer/Analyst. She worked on the Auto/Claims team, maintaining programs and systems as well as developing new programs.
Cindy left Royal Insurance and went to Guardian Insurance in Mississauga. Cindy continued working as a Senior Programmer/Analyst. She worked on the Claims team implementing a new IBM HUON system. Sadly, Guardian Insurance was purchased by ING (now known as Tangerine), the project was suspended and the company laid off most of the Systems Department.
While on maternity leave, ING Insurance laid Cindy off. Cindy started working contract for Drew Morey Productions programming Flash scripts for a children’s website (colouring pages and a game.)
Cindy started her business, Wanna Web Design in early 2008 after studying HTML programming through Durham College, online.
Cindy taught herself how to install and use Joomla! Content Management Systems (CMS) and designed her first website with it. She created and maintained several websites over the next year using Joomla!
Cindy discovered WordPress Content Management Systems and has never looked back! Cindy specializes in WordPress websites, she has a vast knowledge of themes and plugins that enable functionality such as E Commerce, chatrooms, product listings, events, networking and security.
Cindy can also work with other website development programs such as Kajabi, Squarespace, Six, Godaddy Tonight and many other Content Management Systems. She is fluent in HTML and CSS.
