We know that technology can be frustrating and overwhelming. It seems to change daily. Figuring out what works (and what doesn’t) can be a daunting task.
Ten years ago, a small business came to Karen Druery asking for help. They had just paid a great deal of money for a new website. Yet, when doing a search on Google, they couldn’t find their business anywhere. Discouraged, they asked Karen if she could help figure out why.
That question, the “Why”, was the beginning of Druery Web Design.
That’s why we exist: to take the mystery out of technology and make online marketing enjoyable and uncomplicated for small businesses.
This involves laughing. A lot of laughing. Life (and business) should be fun, right? We certainly think so and try to infuse a bit of lightheartedness into each client project.
Karen Druery graduated from Old Dominion University with a BS Degree in Business Administration: Management Information/Decision Sciences. After graduation, Karen joined Bank of America as a programmer for mortgage servicing. From there, her career path included ITT Residential Capital, Financial Profiles and a naval military contractor, Anteon. With each new position, she was hired because of her ability to quickly understand new business concepts.
In 2005, after programming in Southern California for more than 18 years, Karen Druery moved to Bend to enjoy the unique lifestyle… and finally hang-up her keyboard. After only two years, she was sucked back into the world of web programming and Druery Web Design was born in 2007. Since then, Karen has been able to help over 200 small businesses and non-profits in Bend establish their presence on the web.

John Hammarley specializes in writing, videography, voice-overs (and humor). His love of writing started when his third grade teacher, Sister Ann Marie, awarded him his first gold star! A few years later, he married that love to the joy of creating videos. That third grade gold star led to four Emmy® Awards and a bunch of other accolades. John owns a videography company called called Hammarley Productions.
