Lauren Gearhart.

Front-end web developer based out of the greater Philadelphia area

Lauren Gearhart

I first started exploring the world of web development and design in middle school, when I launched my very own, very tacky Geocities homepage. After completing my social sciences degree, I decided I wanted to get back to my roots — tinkering with code! I currently reside in the greater Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania, and in the future I hope to continue to explore the rest of the world, too.

Great Ideas
Professional Skills

There's nothing flimsy about my soft skills


I am a prime example of the idea that you don't need an official title to be a leader.


I pride myself on my excellent relationships with clients and coworkers, based on communication.

Attention to Detail

I am obsessed with producing high-quality work. I want every pixel, word, and line of code to be perfect.


It's a fancy word that means I like to teach myself new things. I care about staying industry-current.


I care about the people I work with. I want to foster a creative, supportive, fun atmosphere to work in.


I love to tinker with the aesthetics of a site, using beautiful color palettes, typography, and graphics.
Technical Skills.

What languages, software, platforms, and technology am I familiar with? Read on.

I am dedicated to having a solid foundation of technical skills, in addition to a love of staying industry-current. There's nothing I enjoy more than learning about the latest tools and trends.

Front-End Basics

HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Bootstrap, React, Angular, jQuery, Photoshop/Sketch slicing, responsive design, source control

Web Content Management

Web content management systems (CMS) I've used: WordPress, Sitecore, Joomla, and Umbraco. I am particularly familiar with the Divi theme and Yoast SEO plug-in, when it comes to WordPress.

Creative Software

Namely, the Adobe Creative Suite: Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and Lightroom. I also know my way around Sketch and have used Google Web Designer to create animated HTML banner ads.

Project Management

I am familiar with a variety of project management software and platforms, including Mavenlink, Basecamp, Trello, Asana, and Jira. I'm great with Microsoft Office and Apple's productivity software, too.

HTML Emails

I excel at coding responsive HTML emails and email templates, test them using Email on Acid, then deploy them using ExactTarget, Campaign Monitor, or MailChimp, depending on the client.

Quality Assurance (QA)

Nothing goes to production unless it's amazing. Everything goes through an exhaustive checklist before it hits the live site. I test on a variety of devices organically, or via BrowserStack.

Search Engine Optimization

Do you dream of being at the top of Google's search results? I can help! I am familiar with SEO best practices and can help optimize your site. WordPress bonus: knowledge of Yoast SEO.

In-Browser Design

I'm not someone who needs a PSD to reference for every project. I'm great at making things up as I go along!
