I provide web development services to companies, artists, authors and designers looking to upgrade their current sites, build new websites, or develop their custom designs.
Specializing in WordPress, I excel at taking any design and making it into a custom theme tailored to your needs, with an eye on speed, functionality and responsiveness.
I offer reasonable rates, and efficient turn around times. My clients are almost exclusively referral-based and I am committed to excellent communication, consistency, and client satisfaction.
Jen Gfeller is amazing. I’ve worked with her for several years and she always makes everything stress free and seamless. When I’ve run into a technical problem with my website, blog or podcast (usually in the middle of the night), Jen fixes it immediately. Although she tells me she is not a designer, she made my most recent website redesign functional and beautiful, while working within my sad little budget. I couldn’t be happier. Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about her.

Over the past decade, Jen has done the websites for my choir and myself. Not only do they look great and function well, but the process of working with Jen has been consistently smooth, personable, and efficient. For the Elektra site, she grasped immediately what was needed for an extensive repertoire resource and worked closely with me to make it happen. Jen is a clear communicator and always responsive and professional. I’ve recommended her to several colleagues who have also been very happy with her work.
We have worked with Jen for the past eight years; she is our go-to call for any websites we require developed, audited or adapted, and we hope to work with her for many years to come, too. Working with Jen is like working with a colleague in-house: we trust her implicitly, know she’ll get the job done and appreciate how she often goes above and beyond on projects. And she explains complex challenges in ways that are easy to understand—something essential in the online world! I highly recommend collaborating with Jen.

Jen is an absolute treasure. She’s professional and reliable, highly skilled, and easygoing. She made my two websites everything I wanted them to be and more. I’ve had real issues with developers in the past and feel profoundly lucky to have been referred to her.
Jen Gfeller has been managing our website for West Coast Chamber Music for about 5 years.
She came to us on high recommendation from another organization. She helped us develop the site to one which was much more professional looking and visually appealing than it had been before, and much easier to use. Navigators can smoothly find their way around the site now and find the information they need quickly. She has given us helpful advice as to where and how to display new information and postings along the way. She has a good artistic eye, and knows what works.
Jen is also incredibly easy to work with. She replies to emails promptly, answers all questions, and does requested work in short order. I highly recommend her services.

Jen Gfeller was recommended to me by Zoe Grams at ZG Communications when my website needed repair, restoration and updating. Initially uncertain as to how extensive I wanted the changes to be, I found Jen to be extremely patient and helpful throughout the process, offering me advice and support on a continuing basis. She responded extremely quickly – often immediately – to my many, many emails requesting alterations and fine-tuning. Her response to my frequent query – “Can you do this?” was always, without exception, “Yes.” And then she did it!
I am extremely happy with the result and feel that I can – and will – call on her for continuing advice even now the project has been completed.

Jen Gfeller is an invaluable asset to any project she supports. I have managed many projects and worked with many freelancers over the past decade, Jen is one of the best. She delivers quick replies, clear explanations, and the going above and beyond that only the very best and most conscientious professionals do. Without having met Jen in person, I feel a sense of rapport and trust in her “being there” when needed, no matter how many miles away. 10 stars!

It’s been absolutely great working with Jen. Together with designer Jessica Sullivan, she’s created a website for me that is beautiful, functional, and fun, works on all platforms, and is easy enough for me to update myself. Jen is knowledgeable, thorough, responsive to questions and ideas, and works through any challenges with grace and good humour. She has the perfect combination of expertise and experience, and you’d be lucky to work with her on any web-based project. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

I was looking to have my website overhauled, and Jen’s VancouverWebDev business name came up. I thought it wouldn’t hurt to call and ask her advice and opinions on my options.
Within a minute of speaking with her, I knew I had the right person for the job. From the very first phone call to the completion of my newly designed website, Jen has been a dream to work with..!! She’s very friendly, intuitive, great at what she does and she’s also has a fantastic sense of humour.
Why can’t all services be like this..?? Needless to say, I’m very happy with the product Jen produced for me and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Thank you so much Jen for all of your great work and patience with me. I love my new website..!!

I hired Jen early in 2011 to provide support for my phpBB forum board as I knew nothing. She came in cold and assessed what needed to be done as the board had not been kept up for over a year.
The first thing required was to upgrade to phpBB 3 then do some custom mods. The transfer of all the information from the old board to the new one took a few days to sort out but we managed without losing any of the information.
This was a first as previous upgrades had lost features and information. Jen being a night owl is perfect for support as she does the work late when the board is quiet. Jen manages our tech needs well and is quick to respond to issues our members have.”
