Claire de Jong
Website Accounts Manager

Claire de Jong

Claire has been building websites since dial up was a thing. Her first website was her own – a self-taught project to display her art and poetry. This first foray into the world of the internet was the perfect match for her skills, being both artistic and highly skilled at math. She still gets a little nostalgic every time she hears the screech of an old-school modem.

Since then, she has mastered sales and marketing as a manager for retail stores and multi-million dollar companies while continuing to hone her skills as a developer.

She has produced nearly 100 websites for small to mid-size companies. Every website she creates benefits from her unique blend of artistic and coding talent.

She enjoys jogging, helping people through non-profit functions, and introducing her daughter to the wonders of art through the many venues that St. Louis has to offer.

To see some of the many websites she has created, visit our website portfolio.
