Is Ghost misbehaving?  Do you need some help?  Want your website to include a feature that isn't in your theme?  Wish someone else would wrangle that CSS into submission?

I'm your gal.  Please use my contact form.

Small jobs are welcome.  I can mod your theme to switch to dark mode, add a drop-down menu or table of contents, change image sizes, retrieve some values from a public API, make custom pages for your theme, and more!

Get in touch and let's see how I can help you make your Ghost site exactly how you want it!

I run a Ghost website covering state politics. As such, even with my background in IT, I just don’t have time to figure out a coding problem; I’m too busy writing and editing.

On a forum for Ghost users and developers, I posted a particular feature I wanted to add to my site, and asked if anyone was interested in building it. Ms. Sarisky immediately contacted me, and after a few emails to make sure the details were agreed upon, got to work. In a few days I had the feature I wanted, coded very cleanly and professionally. I installed it, and it worked perfectly the first time I tested it.

If you are looking for software development work, you should definitely contact Cathy Sarisky. I’ve now got her in my contact list with an A+ beside the name.

Cathy is excellent to work with! She was quick, concise, and responsive. Her changes worked the first time and she intuitively pointed out things that I overlooked. She'll be my first choice on future work.

Can I see some of your work?

Yes and no.  Much of the work I do is smaller jobs, not entire sites, where I'm customizing a theme, not creating a whole site from zero.  I encourage clients to buy/choose a theme that gets them 'close' to the goal, because that's a strategy for saving money compared to starting from zero!  Much of the credit for the looks of the sites below goes to the theme creator, who I've linked to credit for their awesome work.  

Here are some examples of how I've made great themes better fit my clients' needs and wants:

Here's some other work that wasn't theme customization.  

I've also been known to work on other platforms...  Here's a review from work I did (via Catch A Fire) on a troublesome Wix migration:

Working with Cathy was fantastic and we couldn't have accomplished our goals if it wasn't for her excellent work. I couldn't have imagined a more competent, professional, and fun person to work with.

How much does it cost?  There are a lot of variables for custom website work, but here's a short list of common items:
