About Cat Scholz

I am no longer developing websites, however, you are welcome to contact me for WordPress coaching or consultation.

After 7 years of working as a board-certified music therapist, music educator and a singer-songwriter, I began a new career building WordPress websites while working on my first fully-produced album of original music.

There was a transition period between these 2 careers during which I hired local web developer, Carol White of Winter Street Design to build my music teaching website. I had played around with html in college, so when Carol generously gave me a copy of Contribute (html editing software) that would allow me to do the changes myself, I got inspired to build websites that people could update and maintain themselves.

So in 2008, when I wanted to build another website to showcase (and sell) my music online, I came across Mark Maxwell’s website. I looked at the source code and discovered it was built with WordPress. Having no idea what WordPress was, I went to WordPress.org and downloaded the software. Thus began my trip “down the rabbit hole” and my next career of developing WordPress websites as I followed my curiosity into the world of WordPress, themes and plugins.

That was 2007. Now years later, after trying out many different themes and plugins, getting messy breaking and fixing things, I bring my WordPress knowledge and skills to authors, entrepreneurs, arts organizations, non-profits, mad scientists, musicians, artists, small businesses, companies, healers and hobbyists.

In addition to being a WordPress coach, consultant and a singer-songwriter (check out my second album, Right Here Now from 2014), I also enjoy being a mother to 2 wonderful children, hiking, dancing and cooking. In May 2021, I graduated from CIIS and am launching a new career as an expressive arts therapist.
