Lori just completed my website and I love it! I was lucky enough to already have a website that I loved, but it was seven years old and desperately needed updating. I have interviewed many website designers over the last couple of years, many of whom were offended when I asked them to upgrade it but keep it just as it was. Not only was Lori willing to work with me, she managed to keep it "just like it was," but somehow made it so much more. Her subtle tweaks elevated the site while retaining everything that was important to me. Lori worked within my budget, she was willing to spend an inordinate amount of time with me, including two hours on the phone with me teaching me how to do things myself. She offers a unique combination of attention to detail, yet openness and flexibility to try different ideas. All in all, a great experience. I would highly recommend Lori. As a matter fact, I already have!

Lori really came through for me with custom code for one of my design projects!
I met Lori recently as I was looking to expand my network of Web developers and almost immediately had a project I thought she could help me on. She graciously fit my consulting work into her schedule and quickly delivered exactly what I needed. Lori also thought of things I wouldn't have considered in order to give me the very best solution for my challenge. She also helped to make unexpected tweaks to ensure that the finished product was perfect.
I highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again on my Web projects.

Lori helped me rebrand my business by designing and developing a new WordPress website. She listened carefully to my needs and recommended changes that proved beneficial. She was patient with my questions and answered them in end-user terminology. I would definitely recommend Lori to any company searching for a specialist in WordPress.

Lori recently redesigned our website and is just a delight to work with. She was very thorough in figuring out what we wanted and making recommendations appropriate to our budget and timeline. She had great ideas and was flexible and responsive to my feedback, and continues to be available for questions or problems. I am so glad we worked with her and wish we had done it sooner!

Lori is as good as it gets when you want to deal with an expert, open-source developer. Her high level of expertise coupled with amazing integrity and the ability to get the job done right the first time make her an amazing person to refer - I cannot say enough good things about her and I wish her much continued success!

I've used Lori on a number of IT and photo projects including Maryland Physician Magazine's website and Mojo Media, LLC's custom publishing projects. She "gets" my vision and goals for an easy to use and navigate site and high quality photo editing, delivering great work in a timely manner. She's great to work with!

Lori did a terrific job designing a web-page for me, especially since it had to fit into an already-existing website. She was attentive to detail, intuitive, creative, thorough, professional, and reasonably priced. I highly recommend Lori for web-work.

Lori does great work! She's fast and responsive. Could not ask for a better web developer!
- Noel Saw
UX Designer/Advisor & Project Management
Lori is very knowledgeable in WordPress programming. I hired Lori to develop a page template for my client's WordPress theme and she delivered just what I needed. She understood the objective and helped define the requirements so we both understood what the project involved. She went on to deliver even more because she understood what I needed for the client. I will certainly be hiring Lori again. On time, high quality and pleasant to work with.

I have worked with BeeDragon Web Services for many years, just recently having Lori upgrade my site from a product brand to a name brand. She not only provides personal and responsive attention but ensures a depth of understanding of your needs, goals and limitations. While I consider her a technical genius, she also ensures that when she is done, you can easily self manage your own site. She is available and makes my crises seem simple, walking me toward solutions with great ease. And most importantly, in this difficult time of economic scarcity, she is affordable without compromising quality. I have recommended her to many of my colleagues, and I can't say enough about the quality and generosity of her services.
- Ruth King
My show's website needed an upgrade. BeeDragon willingly took up the offer and blew me away. I am an insane perfectionist, and after the longest email thread in the world - ever - we got everything to meet and far exceed my expectations. The website looks stunning, and has the most functionality I have ever seen in a WordPress site. Lori is incredibly talented, and patient. I can't thank her enough. I truly am enjoying the new site, as are all my viewers!

Lori Berkowitz was already the web developer for the Pacific Association of Women Martial Artists (she has been since 2004) when I joined the Board of Directors in 2006, where she was doing a great job in making sure the website kept working and in making updates quickly. So when we transitioned our site to a CMS system with online member database and event registration, Lori was the obvious choice to create the new site. This was a large project that involved re-designing the site from scratch to work with the CMS company's template system and setting up the back end to make our site's interactions with members user-friendly.
Lori's work is fast and thorough, she always researches questions, and comes up with working solutions. She worked very well with the graphic designer and writers in making an attractive and functional site. Our members have commented on how useful the new site has become. Thanks to her work, our site has become a real marketing tool to sign up new members, as well as enhanced retention of current members.

Lori has volunteered for many years as the web site technical expert for a nonprofit group that I was a part of. She has helped to troubleshoot issues and she helped me to implement a complete redesign of the site using a new service provider that had some quirky implementations of features. She has been consistently great about digging in to research and quickly resolve issues. I have always been impressed with the speed and effectiveness of her responses whenever a new issue crops up. To have that kind of quality and reliability from someone who is a volunteer is truly rare. I would not hestitate to recommend Lori for any position.

Lori is detail oriented, quick to respond when I need help. Offers multiple ways to solve my web challenges, and very reasonably priced. I have tried to work with others, there is no one who compares to Lori for great service, top quality work, and value. I highly recommend her for your web work. I have had her create and work on four sites for me over the years.

Lori is an extremely detail oriented person, with great coding skills. To give you an example: one time, when we were talking about getting together on a project, I sent her a sample .psd file, asked her to turn it into a web page. Within 3 hours, she had responded with a web page, on her own server, that was a 100% faithful replication of the .psd file I'd sent her (which, if you do web design, you know can be hard to do), was 100% cross-browser compatible, and had flawless coding. She has also assisted me as a subcontractor on my own work, and each time her coding has been without flaw. She's very responsive, and I'd trust her completely to code any website of mine. And I'm a pretty picky person.
- Dana Stuart
Lori's knowledge, attention to detail, and high quality web development is second to none. After meeting with Lori to discuss the design of the Autism Women's Network Website and Forum, she independently designed and built an attractive, functional, and accessible site for personal and professional use.
Our forum launched only three weeks ago, and we already have over two thousand posts and more than 300 topics to date. In less than a week the Autism Women's Network ranked number one in google search for female specific topics in relation to the autism spectrum.
Lori continues to maintain our site, perform updates, system backups, and is also providing top of the line training to our staff. As Executive Director for the Autism Women's Network, I am completely dedicated to maintaining our valued relationship with Lori for all of our organization's web development needs.

Lori's work with the Autism Women's Network and our website has been dedicated and superb. Lori has a good eye for both reasonable and ideal goals, and has been able to give us a flexibility that has allowed up to open our site faster while still adding the segments that we need. Additionally, her passion for web design has allowed her to provide us with better tools to suit our needs, and a more top of our field (non-profit) website than many organizations with similar needs. I would refer most non-profit groups in need of more up to date and still attractive web sites to her any day!

Genius is a term I've rarely used in describing others, but in the case of Lori Berkowitz at Beedragon Web Services it's a word that rolls off my tongue effortlessly. If you're interested in quality and desire to have an amazing website you can be proud of then look no further - you've arrived.
Lori is the consummate professional. She delivered everything we agreed upon and in the end gave me even more!! Not only did she create a phenomenal website for me, but she tutored me on how to use it. There aren't enough good things I can say about Lori at Beedragon... There just isn't enough space.
When you're working with Lori, your working with the absolute BEST!
Needless to say... Lori at BeeDragon is my web professional for life.
