About Word & Web

History

Julia Wilk first began offering freelance translation services in 2009 when she was an undergraduate studying at McGill University. Over the years, she grew her client base and began branching out, offering a wider variety of services and honing her skills. Throughout the years, she made many connections with other professionals and eventually settled in scenic rural Vermont.

In 2017, she put her programming skills to use and completed a W3Cx online course in HTML5 alongside a few small web development projects using both Squarespace and Wordpress. The moniker "Julia Wilk Word Services" was retired and Word & Web was born! Soon after, she established an office in Hardwick, Vermont as part of the Vermont Tech Collective.

Julia loves to work with the Divi theme for Wordpress, but she’ll build on most platforms. She recommends Cloudways as her host of choice. Click here to open a Cloudways account with her affiliate link.
