Elizabeth Hicks
Senior Web Developer

Growing up, Elizabeth wasn’t like the other kids. While they were building towers and knocking them down, she dreamt of building code. When they were learning to write their first names, she had already written her first program. So by the time Al Gore finally got around to inventing the internet, she was more than ready. Even as a Tarheel on Demon Deacon turf, she’s living her dream as a Senior Developer for the Wake Forest University Digital Communications Team.

Bret Newton
Senior Web Developer

Bret is our resident WordPress guru and developer, bringing his considerable background in all things WP to Wake Forest. On most days you’ll find him building something new like a fancy plug-in, or improving a theme for one of the many departments on campus that rely on WordPress.

Lisa Perriello
Front-End Web Developer

Lisa brings to the team a winning combination of the technical and design skills required to make Wake Forest web properties function well and look good at the same time.

Lloyd Whitehead
User Experience Designer

Lloyd has collaborated with just about every department and organization on campus to help create and maintain their websites, including The School of Divinity, Undergraduate Admissions, Financial Aid and the Museum of Anthropology. As a UX Designer, Lloyd works to make WFU web sites attractive, efficient and user friendly. In his spare time, Lloyd manages broadcast email communications with alumni, parents and friends of the University.
