DOROTHY VO, (RA), MBA
Founder, CMS Web Designer
Raised on the island of O'ahu of the state of Hawai'i, I've spent almost my entire life developing myself on a beautiful island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Attended the University of Hawai'i at Manoa for my B.A. in Political Science with a pre-law concentration. Continued my post-grad education at UH Manoa's Shidler College of Business and earned my Masters of Business Administration in 2019. On top of my education background, I am actively licensed in real estate for the state of Hawaii.
Growing up I've always had an affinity towards art and music, which I joyfully developed over time. Although I did not pursue an art education, I kept working on oiling my artistic abilities. It was not until my last year of MBA school during a digital marketing class that I discovered my love for web design and development. It's a field that goes beyond design. There are factors such as the searchability of the website, how efficient and effective the website is for visitors and for website owners, and so many other interesting things. After browsing around on local business's websites, I realized how behind O'ahu's small businesses are in the online world and how much these mom and pops are missing out on. This realization gave birth to my company, Peridot Designs, and ever since its creation I've been able to help multiple small businesses, organizations, and even a band build a fully functional website that is aesthetically appealing and builds their online presence.
