Empowering You to Achieve Your Website Goals and Live Your Best Life

Here is what my website, email marketing, and social media management clients are saying.

Dr. Cherie D. Lindsay-Chapman
LC Consulting and Coaching

“I had the pleasure of working with Julie at Returning the Gift to develop my business website, and I am thrilled with the results. The process was seamless, and Julie demonstrated exceptional professionalism, kindness, and expertise.

Julie was extremely thorough from start to finish, taking the time to understand my business goals and vision for the website. The communication throughout the project was exceptional; I was always kept in the loop about the progress, and any hiccups were powered through exceptionally.

Returning the Gift stands out due to their compassion towards their clients and projects, meticulous attention to detail, and dedication to delivering a product that surpasses expectations. The design they created perfectly captured the essence of my brand, and the website’s functionality is exceptional. The user experience is seamless, and I have received numerous compliments from clients and colleagues about the site’s aesthetics and ease of navigation.

They genuinely care about the success and satisfaction of their clients. I highly recommend Returning the Gift to anyone looking for professional and reliable website services. Working with them has been a pleasure, and I am confident that my website will continue to be a valuable asset to my business for years to come.”

“At Impact 100, we have worked with Julie to do everything: website design, hosting, updating, troubleshooting, and more.  She is talented, passionate, responsive, and knowledgeable.   We know that whatever our needs, Julie is gracious and patient in both her interactions with us and in her timely attention to fixes, updates, or redesigns.  We recommend Julie and her work without reservation!”

“Hair Management aka HM Salon was referred to Returning the Gift to help with our website. We were trying to do the work ourselves but it was proving to be time-consuming and honestly not looking at all how we wanted it to look. We weren’t sure what information to put on the site and how to make it look good. Julie was able to quickly and efficiently get what she needed from us and was able to understand our needs. There was minimal work on our end once she took over and the website looks amazing. Her prices were reasonable and she is quick to respond when we need updates. ”

May We Help

“Of course, Julie is talented. All you have to do is look at her work! But if you haven’t worked with Julie before, what you may not know is the dedication she has to her clients and their success.

In fact, that’s how we were first introduced to Julie. Another non-profit shared with May We Help that Julie not only did a fantastic job revamping their website, Julie also worked with them during their fundraising events to ensure they had the technical support they needed to make their events a success, whether those events were in-person, hybrid or virtual.

That sounded outstanding to May We Help, so we enlisted Julie’s services, and that’s exactly what she delivered! Julie revamped our website, and the impact can be felt at multiple levels: client, donor, programming, and volunteer!

And since then, Julie’s been a friend, a teacher, and a person we can call when we’re in a panic. Without fail, she’s always there for us – at odd hours, on weekends, and even when she’s on vacation. When we need something, Julie gets the job done and done perfectly.”


Patti Kovac

“I met Julie Metzger at a networking event and connected with her on LinkedIn. I frequently saw her posts and reached out to her in 2021 to update our company’s website, also making the site mobile-friendly. She asked us to first lay out what we wanted the new version to be, then met with our team to go over specifics. Within a short time, she sent us a link for our test site, to be altered how we saw fit. After a few emails, we launched the site in September! It looks great and not too trendy, but just right, making us proud to have clients and candidates view the site. We have more capabilities now, and a lot of room to grow, as our learning progresses each time we add new job postings, tweak some words, or whatever we wish to do. Julie has helped us with feeling confident to edit content and to try new ideas. She has a kind spirit and is very patient with guiding you around the site. We would highly recommend Julie and Returning the Gift to anyone needing to start a new website, or simply to “make better” what you have. ”

Transducers Direct

“Our company needed a new website. Our old site was running very slowly and needed a major facelift. As our site functionality is quite complex, we needed someone who could come in, learn the complexity, and apply their expertise to develop a new, better-functioning website. Julie came in and immediately offered suggestions and solutions to enhance our website. She developed our website in an easy-to-use content management system – one that we could update in the future. She thoroughly researched options and came up with a solution that was best for our company. Any obstacles she faced, she faced with perseverance and beat the challenge every time. After the website was finished, she was always available for any questions we had. I would definitely work with Julie again! Her experience speaks for itself.”

Raymond Towler
X-Freedom Studio

“My name is Raymond Towler, I am the founder of X-Freedom Housing Group.  I want to speak about Julie Metzger’s “Returning The Gift”. I met Julie through The Mayerson Foundation.  I needed help with the XFHG website.  Julie has been very easy to work with, as well as explained the process of building the site in a way that I understood.  She has always been available and capable when I need to bring new ideas or changes to the site.

Working with Julie Metzger has been I gift to XFHG.”

Courtney Bissett

“I had the pleasure of being introduced to Julie in the summer of 2021. I was reaching out for help with a website designer and Julie came highly recommend. I was at the next step in my career and really wanted my website to reflect that, but wasn’t 100% sure of my vision. Through multiple conversations with Julie, I shared my background and thoughts with her, she was then able to bring my vision to life in such a beautiful way! She was very responsive and attentive when updating things on the site and I felt very comfortable being able to talk with her. When it came time to add or change things she was very understanding and reliable and able to add/change what was needed, and did it promptly. I would highly recommend Julie if you’re looking to take your website to the next level.”

Mark Meister
Meister International

“As our business here at Meister International continued to grow at a rapid pace, we needed a reliable and responsive web design specialist in order to keep our best foot forward in the marketplace. A friend suggested that we talk with Julie and within a few minutes, we knew that she was the right partner for us. Julie is creative, has fresh ideas and we have been complimented on our easy-to-use website by a number of clients. In a day and age, when people always seem too busy to focus on the importance of working with individual customers as people (and in a hurry to get to the next project), Julie makes sure that all of the customer needs are incorporated into the final product and that all details are covered. Juliue makes the whole process seamless and simple!”

Troy Parker
Innovative Labor and Cleaning Services

“Innovative Labor and Cleaning Service Began working with Returning the Gift (RTG) and Julie Metzger in 2017 to create our first website.
Even though our budget was small at the time Julie’s professionalism and quality of work were top of the line. Over the years Julie has helped upgrade our website and provided other needed support that has helped in our success.  Julie has also helped us help more returning citizens by providing some services at a very reduced rate. It’s nice to see someone who truly lives up to the name and the mission statement of their company. Julie Metzger really does RETURN THE GIFT in the way she lives and runs her business.”

Barb Flynn
The Pottery Place

“Julie redid the website for our pottery studio. She did an awesome job! She met with me initially to go over what I would like and created exactly what I envisioned. We went from a “cute” website to a modern, sleek website. It is easy for our customers to navigate from purchasing items to booking parties. Julie is professional and understands what her clients want and need. She is very willing to help when I have a question or want to add something to the website. I would highly recommend Julie for creating & maintaining your website.”


David Friedler

“Our firm has the pleasure to work with Julie on our marketing efforts. Since Julie joined the team, we’ve improved our marketing effectiveness tremendously. She is great to work with and a true asset to any organization.”

Susan and Jeff Harris

“Julie Metzger was very instrumental in helping us create the website for our Family Foundation that fit our specific needs. We are very pleased with the outcome. She blended her technical expertise with the overall site and the public and community projects page that we wished to be exhibited in an artful, creative manner. She listened well to our needs, advising us in a concise, direct way. We would highly recommend Julie Metzger and Returning the Gift.”

What my coaching clients are saying about me

This coaching session helped me realize things about myself and the situation that I am dealing with. I am not the only person who has the feeling that I have or go through certain things during the grieving session. It also helped to talk to someone who had experienced a similar situation. Very grateful for the opportunity to talk to her.


I had a great experience talking to Julie. I left feeling relieved and a new sense of renewal for life. I’m looking forward to more talks with Julie. I highly recommend her.


Julie is quite good at prompting me to organize my thoughts about my situation. She has proposed ideas to help me establish appropriate boundaries in my external relationships and to move forward. Because of her input, I have been able to correct the situation in my life that has been at the core of the stress that has had a negative impact on me for the past several months.


Julie is incredibly empathetic. She listens fully and offers questions only when she is sure you’ve finished speaking. This allows the space for her clients to look at themselves and process their own words before diving deeper into the underlying emotions. Through our session, I was able to better understand my blocks and motivations.


It was easy to relax into a coaching session with Julie. She really knows what she is doing! She asks thought-provoking questions in a gentle way and usually leaves you with a concrete action item you can take away from the session with you. I’m already booked for my next session with her.


Julie allowed me to free the space in my head that continued to hold me back. Even if it was just for 60min. Grateful that she made me feel like I wasn’t alone or the only one who is going through what I’m going through.


This was my first appointment with Julie and my first experience with a coach. I found it very helpful. Julie gave me a few suggestions and I put them to good use and found they really did help.


Julie is a sincere coach and great listener.


This experience was definitely a positive endeavor. Julie was able to help me strategize and clarify some much-needed tasks I had been bouncing around in my head.


Julie Metzger is kind, non-judgmental, calm, smart, and 10,000 other amazing things. She put me at ease immediately. She comes across as genuine and sincere. I was able to open up to her quickly. I look forward to many more sessions with her.
