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 provide a variety of solutions for business pains using custom software development and training. The culmination of this process happened in July of 2002 with the formation of WebSquared LLC.
