Dhamma Patapa

In May 2017, the board of the SN Goenka’s retreat center in Jesup, GA – Dhamma Patapa – decided to update the previous HTML based hard-coded website to WordPress. I was asked to lead the transition as I had provided technical assistance as a volunteer since 2014. Previous content was carried over, edited, and formatted with updated Bootstrap styles. Ease of interactivity was emphasized to make frequently updated content more accessible for edits by the center staff.


Mariya Shiyko PhD, holistic life & business coach, asked me to assist with building a personal website for her coaching practice. I assisted with the theme selection process and provided counsel for the content creation. I worked collaboratively with Dr. Shiyko to integrate existing branding, graphics, and media into a consistent style and layout for the website
