Design Overview:

The site is simple and clean with and displayed in chronological order with the most recent post appearing at the top. There is a side navigation that highlights her social plugins, her RSS feed, about, recent news articles related to SMD, and a SMD 101. There is a stark white background which makes the videos pop.


The audience for SMD is parents of young children as all of the content is related to them. Her twitter account has over 10,000 followers.

Business/Site Goals:

There is a prominent “donate” button on the top right navigation which leads to a web form where users can donate to the non-profit, but that is secondary to establishing both the hospital and Dr. “brands”.
