Kimberly Buckley

Owner

I started developing and designing for the web, in early 1993.  Those early roles included several technology and design-related duties and projects.  I have served in roles of network administrator, web master/administrator, desktop publisher, graphic designer.  Today that background has expanded into other varying cross-platform design canvases.

I came up with the name BlackWebDiva, after initially using the alias/handle of WebDiva, in email addresses, websites, online gaming.  I soon realized that there was a growing number of internet web designers/developers who also began using the handle "Web Diva".  So after a quick query, I jumped at the chance to be the first to own a domain and brand that was unique and memorable.  

The name BlackWebDiva is a representation of the strength of combining the flavor that comes with true diversity and the thirst for providing elegant solutions through the use of technology.
