She is a WP Wonder Woman for sure!

Carrie Dils


Carrie is yet another WordPress Wonder Woman.

Aside from being an obviously cool person, she has over 15 years of web development experience under her belt. Her experience and the fact that she has proven her salt as a developer has landed her as a recommended Genesis Developer.

If you’ve wanted to hire a Genesis Developer or you’re looking to learn more about the framework, then start with Carrie.

Sarah Gooding


If you’ve never heard of Sarah Gooding, then chances are that you’re new to WordPress.

Siobhan is a self-proclaimed geek (just like me) and loves all things WordPress. As a fellow female WordPress blogger, I always love to read whatever she pumps out. Her skills go further than just blog posts. She has a great way of breaking down WordPress jargon and turning into something easy to understand — just like any great copywriter should.

Raelene Wilson


No list would be complete without mentioning Raelene Wilson. Raelene is the an amazing WordPress Wordsmith and the Editor of the ever popular WPMU DEV blog.
