It all started with a few photos and a little experiment by a former journalist trying her hand at new technology. The scene, a family-owned RV dealership in Eugene, Oregon. The problem, they needed someone to help update their webiste inventory.
“First I was taking pictures of campers and RV’s, adding descriptions, and changing prices a couple times a week. Then one day I started playing around with the look of the website home page and next thing I know the owner’s asks, hey can you make this work?”
Some website design classes and two software programs later, a writer became a web designer and media coordinator, who assisted with advertising on billboards, magazines, newspapers and the Internet.
Other businesses requested similar help and from there a company was born… Websites4U (pretty catchy name). This eventually became the website and marketing business it is today.

Meet Our Founder
For more than 11 years Antje had a career as a journalist. First, as a copy desk assistant at the LA Times Orange County Edition. Then as a reporter the Daily Pilot, writing about community issues, interviewing everyone from firefighters to political leaders.
A few years later, she found her professional niche as a magazine editor for a trade publication. Consequently, her writing and political science background launched her in new direction as a writer/media liaison for a non-profit organization, which included world travel.
A move to Oregon inspired her to study website design. As a result of her new found web skills, she became a dedicated web manager/media director for a large RV company. After 4 years, she acquired the skills needed to start her own company.
Antje saw the need for attractive but highly functional websites. She believes, that small businesses need to fine tune their marketing plans,and have a balance of digital and traditional advertising options.
In 2008, Finessa Web Works was launched and serves a range of companies and non-profits throughout Orange County, California with some clients in Oregon, New York, and Connecticut.
