Website Development

Beautiful and handcrafted websites for your use and enjoyment

If you're looking for a new Corporate or Personal website and you want it up and running quickly and smoothly without the time and expense of an inhouse IT or web development department, send me a note to discuss your needs. I specialize in Joomla Content Management System (CMS) installation and component / module integration and in most cases can have your website fully operational within a week.

If you just need installation of the Joomla CMS (with or without a template package) I offer same day service.

I operate my own dedicated server, online continuously since 2001 hosting a limited number of sites.

SaaS - Software as a Service packages include hosting and a range of components and tools (CMS, newsletters, chat, ad server, directories, reviews) to get your business online quickly. This is a great option for anyone who wants to test the waters without the upfront software investment.

Promotions

One of my clients - WD-40

What do WD-40, Eureka Tents, Yves Rocher Cosmetics, DrumBum and other companies have in common? They used ME to introduce their products to the disability community. The WD-40 pen dispenser distribution spanned 5 Consumer shows across the USA and got thousands of samples into the hands of thrilled recipients. Eureka Tents followed the same program which included the tent set up in a vignette where people could go inside and touch it. The tent was raffled at each show - tickets were free.

Those are just 2 examples of Promotions I've run. If you have a product or service you'd like in the hands of the largest visible consumer minority group in North America, drop me a note!

Consulting and Connecting

congierge sign

Consider me your tour guide and connection to the disability community. Kind of like a disability concierge. If you need it and it's related to the disability community and it exists, I can probably find it / connect you / make it happen. Things like events, product development and launching, marketing and promotions, and of course, website development.

If you

  • have questions regarding the accessibility of your business
  • have general or specific inquiries about the community
  • want to review the terminology in your marketing materials
  • need a spokesperson
  • are looking for an industry leader introduction
  • have a product to introduce or promote
  • need stock photography
  • need photography or video service referrals
  • are sourcing a marketing vehicle or promotion

I can help with all of that.

My client list is varied and you may even recognize some names. Have a look through my different services pages and if you feel I might be a good fit, or have an idea, concept, question or product to review, drop me a note!

Event Management

Events and projects of all sizes

I got my event management start in the 1980's on the BOD of Ontario Amputee Sports Association in charge of Promotions & Fundraising and Junior Development. From there I expanded into disability consumer and trade shows and high level sports events including the 2nd Soldier Ride and Wounded Warrior Project. Some of my past events include silent and traditional auctions, Balloon Bursts, charity dinners, galas, raffles, cocktail parties, concerts, ski events, award ceremonies, trade show participation events, product launches, new product distribution, and racing time trials.

I have experience planning events ranging from a casual bbq to a multi-day, multi-participant, multi-venue event with out of town guests, I've done it all including transportation, meals, accommodation, venue planning, security, credentialing, ticketing, entertainment, community participation and group co-ordination.

I specialize in inclusive planning, ensuring everyone can participate by working with event organizers to identify and eliminate potential barriers to access and full participation using site inspections, consumer feedback and visitability principles.

Testimonial

Kimberley was the first one I met in the disabled community at a World Expo in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She helped guide me through some land mines and single handedly helped bring participants from all over the USA to participate in our first driving experience; left coast-right coast and 3rd coast. She is a natural leader with charisma and unafraid to meet new challenges, whether it be driving the Accessible Racing car, water skiing, sky diving or mentoring others.. Kimberley Barreda is a valued friend and consultant of Accessible Racing, from the old school 'show me - don't tell me'!
