Cathy Lessing


Cathy Lessing’s officially one of the GRITS (Girls Raised in The South), specifically the Mississippi GRITS, who re-located to Georgia in the early 90’s.  Her academic background is a mix – an English major with an Art minor and an MBA, and she likes both the technical and the creative aspects of her web and graphic design work.

After leaving an interesting and varied career at a Fortune 500 telecommunications company, she completed an internet certification program at Kennesaw State University and opened her virtual doors for business in 2004, specializing in web site design for small and home-based businesses.

Cathy’s clients appreciate the fact that she helps them explore business issues in order to invest their electronic marketing budgets wisely and effectively.  In addition to web site design, Lessing Design Works helps clients with e-newsletters, logo design and web site maintenance.

She loves reading and learning new skills, a must in the world of web design with new technologies and new applications showing up daily.

When she’s not working, Cathy and her husband Michael enjoy boating and traveling as well as herding cats…they have quite an assortment of feline companions.  She’s observed that cat herding and project management require a similar skill set.
