Let's Talk - Great Designs Begin with Great Relationships

Donna Lyerly


I have been a designer all my life, and in 2002 I began online studies in vector graphics and html web design. Two years later I opened Mountain Webs and eventually had the privilege to partner with 70+ clients over 6 years. I worked with churches, a pig farm, a golf course, and even a city government. I sold Mountain Webs when my husband accepted a position in Shanghai, China but I continued to maintain and stay abreast of changing web practices and trends.

All mediums of design necessitate a discerning eye and a consideration of the aesthetic, functional, and economical. I am not a coder, but by using the powerful opensource wordpress platform I nor anyone else has to be. There are literally thousands of free themes from which to choose. My expertise is in customizing standard theme sites to the client's purpose and branding.


I've been working for myself in one aspect of design or another for 35+ years. Hint* - I'm not a spring chicken, but my growns still call me for Internet advice. :)

My major was fashion merchandising, but a large span of my career was commercial interior design. And for the last 6 years I have been designing pearl jewelry for my company Shucks Pearls. Shucks Pearls came about after a 5 year stint in Shanghai, China. Shucks was most enjoyable, but became overwhelming for just one person.

All this to say, I understand the struggles, practicalities, and nuances of small business. I also understand doing business in Western North Carolina which is a super power indeed!


My husband and I have lived in Western North Carolina going on 30 years. And while we have maintained a constant residence in NC, for almost 10 years of our 30 we lived out of the country; Mexico and China.

Fall of 2015 we moved our 21st and final time to our forever home we are calling "Yonderways".

In 2002 when I was learning to code, it was out of the necessity to share with family and friends our adventures in Mexico. This era was pre-VOIP and sending pictures in email with dial-up was painstaking. So I was determined to create my own website to share pictures and adventures and I did! So my very first domain was "" because we were southerners living yonderways. is now a blog for our homestead rehab. So when deciding on a name for my web design services, "YonderWoman" was a fun and PERFECT fit!
