About Jennifer DeRosa

The Beginning of Web Development:
HTML Classes at Providence Collge in 1994

After graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelors of Arts in Speech Communication in 1991, Jennifer worked for the Marriott Corporation Washington D.C. and then moved back to Connecticut in 1992 to work for a small wine importer.

In 1994, Jennifer DeRosa, began taking HTML classes at night for fun at Providence College while she sold wine during the day. Building websites was a love of hers, and she began hand coding websites in notepad for her extended family so that they could all keep up on what was going on with each other after logging on through dial up to AOL, Earthlink or some other service.

Formation of Executive Pages and TechCare Website Development and IT Support Agencies

In 1997, while working at ENTEX, Jennifer formed Executive Pages, LLC, her first web development agency!  She built her first websites for clients in the law industry.

 

In 2000, Jennifer left ENTEX and branched out as her own IT MSP consultant for a plethora of clients in lower Fairfield County in addition to building websites for select clients.  Because she was working with so many new clients as their IT support, she opened a new company, TechCare, LLC in March of 2001.  Jennifer continued to grow TechCare, LLC taking on new clients and supporting their desktops, servers and infrastructure as well as their brand new first-ever websites!

 

As the technology industry grew and became more specialized, Jennifer decided to follow her love and expertise of building websites and focus exclusively on website development for small and medium businesses. She transitioned most of her clients to new IT support agencies from 2004 - 2007 so that she could focus on providing amazing website support under TechCare.

I learned so much from Jennifer and her company ..

Jennifer has taught me how to be effective with my website! It was very important to me that my website look clean and professional and my dessert pictures look sharp and inviting. I learned so much from Jennifer and her company on how to manage uploading pictures and changing text on my site. She is a wonderful and patient teacher while teaching me all the ins and outs of web design.

My go-to coach over the last 20 years has been Jennifer DeRosa. ...

People try to do many things themselves, to save time and money; but to be successful, you need good guidance and instruction. This is especially critical in the ever-changing world of digital marketing and website development. In my personal, professional, and civic endeavors, my go-to coach over the last 20 years has been Jennifer DeRosa. Her vast knowledge, teaching style and commitment to her clients is unparalleled. She breaks down complicated tasks into bite size pieces. She removes the mystery from the immense world of website development and technology. She gives clear instruction and usable feedback during the learning process. Her tips have saved me time and frustration on countless occasions. While I like to think of myself as a competent digital communications and website manager, I owe my growing skill set and capabilities to Jennifer and Toto Coaching.

I never felt overwhelmed but actually empowered ...

Highly recommend TOTO Coaching and wish I could give more than 5 stars...Jen and her team have added a ton of value and are extremely helpful for a small business owner like myself with limited time or tech ability. I never felt overwhelmed but actually empowered by the simple easy to understand coaching techniques and training. I love being able to change things on my website quickly all by myself. Thank you TOTO!!
