A Little About Me

Headshot of Shanakay Hall

Hey hey my name is Shanakay. I'm a Web Developer and I design, build and support websites and web applications. I'm a problem solver who's humbly confident and naturally curious. I love collaborating and applying my creative and technical skills on projects and I aim to deliver good usability and beauty to the projects I work on. I'm a web accessibility advocate and a member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals. I've worked a lot with growing service-based businesses and mission-focused organizations to help them redesign their websites for better conversions and make them accessible. I've also previously worked in web support roles in both the private and public sector where I’ve led numerous successful website projects. Away from the computer I like to travel and explore new places, live shows, and foodie things.

Black CARE Network Website

Web Designer & Developer

A client project for The Black CARE Network, a non-profit that advocates for Black children and their communities in the Canadian CARE system. They wanted to redesign their outdated Squarespace website to improve the design, make it accessible, and build a custom library of resources that would be easy for their team to update. The solution was to migrate and build their new website on WordPress updated to meet their requirements. The custom resources library is built using Toolset and allows for dynamically adding new resources as needed. Custom post types, view templates, and dynamic pages are built using conditionals and shortcodes in Toolset with some custom CSS.
