Owner, Lead Developer

Kelly Vaughn

Owner, Lead Developer

Developer, business owner, cat enthusiast, caffeine addict. Kelly is secret sauce that keeps things running day in and evening out. As The Taproom’s owner and lead developer, her days consist of hours-long coding marathons, countless client communications, business strategy sessions, and the occasional breath of fresh air when it comes time to scarf down some midday Chick-fil-A. Luckily, at the end of the day, what this means for you is that she’s going to make darn sure your online store is a lean, mean sales machine.

When she doesn’t have her nose in a Macbook, Kelly is travelling Europe with her 9.8/10 husband, experimenting with the latest gin and tonic combos, and putting on all her sweaters at once because she just loves sweaters SO MUCH.

Agency Experts

We've gone through the vetting process by Shopify to be recognized as an Expert on Shopify's platform. This means we know Shopify forwards and backwards, and you can trust that you're putting your online business in capable hands.

I feel so fortunate to have found Kelly to bring my site and business to life. When I asked if something was possible, she investigated the possibilities before saying no or suggesting something else. She has a great eye and is great sounding board. Her follow up is great in all situations. Thanks to Kelly I have the functionality and look I envisioned in my dream! — Marc Skid

Kelly's knowledge of the [Shopify] platform, ability to tell us what would/wouldn’t work on the site, and her attention to detail were all very impressive. Most importantly she set deadlines we needed to hit so we could hit our target launch date. — Chic Soul

Our Process

No two projects ever work the same; your Shopify store is personal and important to your business, and a development process with flexibility and a focus on your brand is key to the work we do.

It all starts with a simple questionnaire so that we get a feel for what you’re looking for, and we put together a personally tailored proposal with the services you would benefit from most. From there, we get to really know your brand and use our knowledge of Shopify to develop and grow your store into a complete product.

Throughout the process, we always collaborate not just with each other but with you and your team on the look, feel, and functionality of your site, providing you with plenty of knowledge and insight along the way to ensure you know your website inside-out.

What happens next?

Well that's up to you! 

Once your store is ready and live, we’ll stick by your side to make sure your site is a well-oiled ecommerce machine.

Like we’ve said, every project is different because we tailor our strategy to you and what you need, so once your site is up and raring to go we can offer advice and work with you on up-keep, management, and continued development.
