Professional Past of Valerie G. Hudgins

Valerie Hudgins | Zen Dog Web Services, Inc.
Before WordPress, Valerie’s career was in technical writing and project management. Her education in business (UCF) and marketing (GSU). She’s owned three successful businesses twice in the last twenty years and taught classes to small businesses for four years at the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). She holds eight patents in digital video hardware and software while designing the cable set-top box UI and worked on the first DVR. Fun stuff! So, it was inevitable – her love of all things geeky and tech combined with her education and small business experience and led to the internet. Now she operates Zen Dog Web Services to help small businesses make the most of the massive virtual connectivity available to them through a WordPress website.







“Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it and virtue is doing it.” ~David Starr




Why a WordPress Website?

WordPress buttons
After creating hundreds of web pages using FrontPage, Dreamweaver and HTML (yep! old school), I became a WordPress Website convert years ago because of their customizable templates and centralized dashboard. It’s open-source and evolving within a great community of designers, developers and users. I attend WordPress conferences to keep up on the latest and pass the best relevant happenings along to my clients. Most of my classes are given at client offices or a reserved conference room.
