I founded Manage My Website back in 2009, building our first ever website on Squarespace 5. Since then I’ve created and project managed more websites on this platform than I could ever have imagined and I'm also a Squarespace Authorised Trainer.

What I love most about my work is the variety of people I meet, both face-to-face and virtually. Many of our clients have also become friends. 

Born in Morocco to a Syrian mother and English father, as a child I travelled much of the world with my parents. The travel bug never left me. I currently base myself between Bath and London, England and Dahab, Egypt.

Another major passion of mine is iPhone photography, some of which you can see here


Donna Bateman

Partner & Business Manager

After a varied career at the sharp end of public service, I joined Allie and MMW in April 2016.

I was attracted by the obvious passion and enthusiasm within the team, and the stunning, beautiful work they each produce. 

As my title suggests I’m the one that does a lot of the “boring” stuff in the background; when I’m not doing that I love being hands-on with web design projects and nothing makes me happier than when a new website goes live. 
I usually split my time between the UK and Egypt which gives me the best of both worlds – the calmness and serenity of Sinai combined with the urban buzz of London and my ever-improving home city of Birmingham.

Squarespace Website Designer and Blogger

As the newest member of the MMW team, I like to consider myself Head of Department for Sass and Style, but I'm also a Squarespace Web Designer and Blogger. I was recruited for my passion for design and detail, my creative skills, and ability to tailor my work to meet and exceed customer expectations.

I've worked in the digital sphere for quite some time in varied roles including content manager, blog writing, and influencer marketing. I was born in New York, and no matter how far I get from there, the city stays in my soul. I love life, travel, and adventure. I discovered Dahab three years ago and instantly fell in love with the lifestyle, relaxed atmosphere, and great people. Meeting and subsequently marrying the man of my dreams obviously helped seal my fate!

I look at web design as form of Art and feel in my element with it.

Coming from a varied background, I find it to be an exciting means of expressing my creativity. Plus, I get to work on all sorts of exciting projects and work with the teams behind them. Strengths in Squarespace, CSS and Adobe suites; it’s a natural fit.

A Londoner through and through, I love everything about the city I call home; the sights, food and the speed of it all.

Also love sitting behind my Mac with headphones & shades on a summer’s day; okay I’m rambling now...

With a background as a marine biologist and animal trainer, I would never have thought a static, computer-based profession like web development would be the profession for me.

On the contrary, working in this field has unlocked a freedom to travel that I never thought possible. I spend my time now travelling primarily between Texas, the UK and Egypt.

I have always had a deep love for computers and the internet, but web design has opened up a creative side of me that I wish I had discovered much earlier in life. A perfectionist at my core, I take great pride in crafting both visually exciting and functionally efficient websites alongside the rest of the Manage My Website team.



Office Cat

I know absolutely nothing about web design, social media or online marketing.

I walked into Allie's garden one day as a young kitten and refused to leave, so really she had no choice but to keep me. I think she likes me now. 

I'm a great hunter, and I’m not afraid of big dogs. A Rottweiler lives near my house and I like to taunt it sometimes. I’m kind of crazy like that. 

I enjoy climbing, eating, and sleeping but occasionally you can also find me playing with chargers for important electrical devices and occasionally destroying them. My favourite food is Royal Canin Fit 32
