Guiding Small Businesses through the web maze since 2001. Providing Online Solutions that drive Success.
Web Design Packages
Since 2014, internet usage with a mobile device surpassed desktop views* and the gap is only increasing. Is your site mobile friendly? We don’t charge an extra fee for designing a mobile site, because these days a site that fits any screen width is a MUST.
Easy Video Training
Your site is finished and you have control of the backend. Now what? Where do you begin? We have you covered. You will receive brief customized website videos on how to update specific sections on YOUR site. Not general website tutorials that you can find anywhere.
Its no use building a website if no one can find it in the search engines. We set up the basic Search Engine Optimization structure on your site, submit your site to the major search engines, and provide you a video on how to update the SEO on your new posts and pages.
Don’t worry yourself with the headaches of hosting. We have partnered with some of the best web and domain hosting companies in the business. Hosting your site with a reliable and fast server is crucial to the success of your site. We set you up and manage your hosting so you dont have to.
If you really want your business to thrive and grow, dont stop at just having a website and social media presence. Email marketing is still a very important piece of a marketing strategy. We have the expertise in this area to help you gather email addresses and use best practices in email design and messaging.
Even though we are mainly designer and developers, we still believe that GREAT content rules the show. If writing compelling and thoughtful text for your site is not your strength, then let us help by providing you resources and partners to help you create the copy that your site deserves to attract the right customers for your business.

About Stephanie Wicker
Stephanie is Cascade Valley Design’s secret weapon; working in the background on projects that require her savvy coding skills and eye for design details. Stephanie started working as a designer at Cascade Valley Designs in 2013 while finishing up a web design program at Bellevue College. Before that, Stephanie took a computer programming college course and although she really enjoyed it she wasn’t sure if coding was something she wanted to do as a career. Stephanie has always loved digging into creative projects like scrapbooking and card making so after stumbling upon web design, it was like having the best of both worlds. Coding and Creating!
When Stephanie is not lost in the world of technology, she enjoys hiking, playing games, and spending time with family. Her and her husband recently had their first baby. Her new little boy keeps her very busy, but she loves it.
Leigh Strinsky, Co-Owner, Travel Marketing Resources
Ann Marie is an exceptional asset to my business. She routinely delivers on time, on budget and consistently exceeds my expectations in terms of the quality of her work. If you’ve ever tried to code an email, you know how difficult it can be to ensure that it renders in multiple email clients. She is the very best email coder that I’ve ever worked with. Ann Marie is not an order taker, she is an innovator. No matter how big or small the project, she’s always thinking how to make the end result even better than expected. She’s also extremely patient and courteous. I can always count on her to be upbeat and ready to take on the task at hand. I highly recommend Ann Marie to anyone looking for a top notch web developer and digital marketing partner (though selfishly I would prefer to keep her all to myself)!
Elaine Iwanski, LMFT, Sacramento Therapist
Ann Marie first designed my website over five years ago and recently launched a newly revised version. My clients have easy access to me and the forms they need to complete. It saves me time. I love her ideas and knowledge about what the public wants to view to get information about me and my professional services. Another advantage from her services: monthly analytics which helps me plan for the future. You will be more than pleased if you like the personal touch and perfectionism. She wants you to be happy with your site and works with you throughout the development of your new website.
Elizabeth, Dabbawalla Bags
Cascade Valley Designs has been such a huge help to our small business. Our website has never looked better and Ann Marie is always so patient with our many changes. We appreciate the personal touch she adds and her diligence in always finding the best options for us.
Barbara Bussey, Interior Designer & Blogger, The Treasured Home
Having worked with other web and graphic designers, I came to the conclusion that the field was a “flake magnet”. Then I met Ann Marie, who is actually knowledgeable, reliable and charges competitively. Go figure!
Charles McCrone, School Director, Kaleidoscope School of Music
I have known Ann Marie for about ten years now, first as a student, then as a friend, and now as both friend and webmistress extraordinaire. She has designed three sites for me now, and has done a great job every time hitting the goals we set, staying within budget, creating sites that blend artistry and functionality, and providing knowledgeable and speedy advice on a day by day basis. She is both happy to educate me in how to update the sites myself and equally happy to bail me out when I try and fail! I would recommend her sharp eye and on the ball attitude to ANYONE for their website needs.
Rhianna Ryer, Personal Fitness Trainer, Mind Body Designs
Ann Marie designed my fitness website 3 years ago and I’m so happy I chose to work with her. I have had so many compliments about my site, and she is always avaliable to help with updates as well as giving me ideas on how to improve my site.
