How WebSquared began
In 2000 Kathleen Conti was working as a trainer teaching end user classes
and CIW web design classes. She decided that she wanted to get more experience
with real world web design and to do this needed to quit her job. She
left her training only career and started working as an independent web
designer and trainer. She enjoyed this consulting work however she wanted
to expand her offerings. During 2002 she decided to form a company and
asked her husband, Andrea Conti, to join her to complete the business
needs by handling the technical aspects of the business. Websquared was
formed to handle a variety of solutions including software development,
training, and pc troubleshooting. The culmination of this business happened
in July of 2002 with the formation of WebSquared LLC.
