Stephanie Wicker Web Designer & Developer

Stephanie Wicker

Stephanie started working as a designer at Cascade Valley Designs in 2013 while she was finishing a web design program at Bellevue College. Although she started out with a love of the creative side of designing websites, she has come to realize she may love working with the backend code and "nerdy" stuff even more.
The large variety of projects we work on has allowed her to grow her coding skills, and she enjoys many of the challenging tasks that require custom plugin and theme development.

When Stephanie is not lost in the world of technology, she enjoys playing games and camping with her husband and their 3 kids.

Natalee joined the team in 2020, bringing an eye for detail, continuity and personalization to our clients.

Natalee has a heart for the success of small businesses, and loves to promote them for social media visibility and engagement.

She’s got a ‘thing’ for color; fabric, gel nails, fine-tip pens, and is a self-proclaimed ‘font nerd’. Natalee loves living in a small town and working with such a generous, intelligent team.

Why the name "Cascade Valley Designs"?

The origin of company names is a fascinating topic, so here is how ours came about.

Thirty miles east of Seattle, in the beautiful, forested foothills of western Washington’s Cascade Mountains, lie the quaint small towns of Carnation and Duvall. Our team's families make their home, and our business its headquarters, in these two towns, which are nestled in a beautiful valley full of scenic vistas and picturesque farms. The Snoqualmie River runs through the valley near these towns, providing plenty of recreation and serving as a frequent backdrop for summer festivals in our community.

Cascade Valley Designs is named as a tribute to where we live and work, which we believe is a hidden gem in the Northwest corner of the US.
