Shanna is a skilled producer, designer, developer and multimedia expert. She is both a highly creative graphic designer and detail driven programmer. Shanna joined forces with Virtual Native in 2001. She has worn a lot of different hats throughout the years, all of which look fantastic on her. She not only handles the operations side of business, she is also dedicated to creating best in class web designs and loves empowering business owners with beautiful professional websites.
Shanna loves living in Bend with her husband and dogs, Brutus and Bourbon. Surrounded by trees and mountains, she is still waiting to see a moose up close. When she’s not watching for moose she’s probably watching Antique Road Show.
We have been working with Josh and his team at Virtual Native for 14 years. They have been an integral part of our team and have been a joy to work with. The ease of communication, the execution of the work, the transparency in their billing process, and the commitment to keeping our site up to date, as well as up and running are just a few of the reasons why we have been so happy with Virtual Native.

It has been an absolute gift to have the design work by Shanna and Virtual Native. For years Shanna has supported me with web design as well as graphic art for promotional materials for my yoga businesses. She has an amazing eye for detail and the most beautiful aesthetic. She is always responsive and surprises me with how fast she can get things done. I feel so blessed to have found Shanna! Thank you!
I first began working with Virtual Native in 2005, and over the past 11 years, I've never had the desire to work with any other web design company. I am self-employed, and have worked with Virtual Native to design several different websites for me, for my different offerings, including jodiboone.com and synergyyogaschool.com. Because of the beautiful design work, I have had countless people ask me, "Who designed your website?" Many of my friends and colleagues have also had their websites designed by Virtual Native. My main contact is Shanna Snell, who is a gifted designer, provides excellent customer service and is a great communicator. In addition to website design, Shanna is my go-to person for graphic design, including business cards, posters and flyers, advertising my yoga retreats, trainings, massage and workshops. Shanna's design work is always gorgeous - I have never had to go back-and-forth with Shanna over design drafts. She is so, so talented as a designer and has such an intuitive understanding of what my design needs are in terms of look and feel. She is also a joy to work with. Although I haven't had the chance to work with Josh, the company's founder and owner in many years, the initial projects I worked with Virtual Native on were with him in 2005 and 2007, he also did lovely design work and had such integrity in the way he ran his business. Both Shanna and Josh are so dedicated and committed. They make you feel like you're their only client, with their quick responses to emails and excellent turn around time on projects. It's amazing. I feel so blessed to have found Virtual Native. They've been so key in helping me make my business successful over the years.

Shanna and Virtual Native are wonderful to work with. Shanna has helped me create and maintain a number of sites for my business and non-profits I have worked for. She has donated her valuable time and expertise for a animal rescue site that otherwise would not be able to have the professional site she set up and continues to be available for any questions or problems that come up. I love working with Virtual Native and will continue to use them for all my website needs.

Our business has been growing so fast we can't keep up. Virtual Native made it easy to stay on top of social media posts, accounts & other need materials to stay current. Thanks to their team, our social presence has gone from dusty to competitive! Now we have time to focus on more important things. I'm not sure what we would have done without them.

Working with VN has been a pleasure. I love their business model and appreciate their no pressure ideas and support. I've had a great experience in working with them and would recommend them to any business looking to get ahead, grow in sales and searchability or just in need of some simple design.

I worked with Josh and Shanna on the KIALOA website for over 10 years. They taught us so much about the ever changing climate of e-commerce and helped us build and maintain a very successful website. I can recommend Virtual Native without reservation.
