Nedra Rezinas, owner Blue Deer Forest
Nedra Rezinas established Blue Deer Forest in 2005 out of necessity and passion for web development. Beginning with her efforts to advocate for the overlooked voices in business, Nedra has directed the growth of Blue Deer Forest to become a support system for small-business technical needs. As the face of the company, she handles every aspect of the client experience from onboarding to project management and more. At the same time, she continues her outreach to educate small businesses through presentations and hands-on training. She regularly presents workshops at PCC Climb and presents to groups and events around the Portland Metro area, including Ignite Portland 2008 with an audience of over 800 attendees. Nedra’s out-of-office time is devoted to family projects involving crafts and baking with her daughter while enjoying board games with her husband. She pays it forward in business by mentoring young professional women.

We work with an amazing group of trusted freelancers and businesses with copywriting knowledge, graphic design, IT, SEO, Social Media, and other expertise. Most of these talented people live in the Pacific Northwest and support the local economy.
We can recommend and/or include them in a project, depending on the demands of a project and what’s best for the client.
