website design NYCAbout Pamela Dean

I’m an independent IT Consultant, Creative Director, and founder of Westside Virtual, a NYC website design company. I am a brand strategist with a passion for designing great websites and filling the web with functional and beautiful pages. I specialize in WordPress website design and leveraging spot-on marketing solutions.

I’m based in midtown Manhattan in Hell’s Kitchen, where I live and work and enjoy every day with my husband and our cutest little dog.

We have been in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen for 35 years and have witnessed the ever changing cultural scene. We have a deep appreciation for design,  drawing so much inspiration from the creative energy flowing through our own neighborhood.

I’ve been a programmer for most of my life. I started coding scientific applications in multiple dimensional matrices, in 1978. In 1999, I created my first web site in my spare time and then went on to create many for friends and corporations. I discovered WordPress and created my first WordPress site in 2009 and I was hooked.

Since then, WordPress has taken over more and more of my life. In 2014, I took the leap to being my own boss and have never regretted it.

In addition to my extensive website design experience, I also hold a Security+ certification, a Network+ certification, and a QualysGuard Vulnerability Management certification.

I’d love to discuss your website design needs with you.

My goal is to create inspiring websites with interactive and lingering content destined to create unforgettable user experiences.

You see, at Westside Virtual, we believe a website is more than just a click here or a link there. At any time, a click on a link of a well-designed website can be the moment at which someone’s life changes.“
