I'm Teara McGinn. I live in northern Canada, a stone's throw away from the world-famous Jasper National Park.

It’s a little cold here, but the view can't be beat.

Shopify Expert Near Jasper


I've been a web developer since 2008 and have been a certified Shopify Expert since 2014. Since then, I've been hired to do development work on over 100  Shopify sites.

I'm not just a coder. I’m a big-picture Shopify Expert that can help you make the most of the platform.  Having worked with e-commerce stores in a wide variety of niches, I can help you implement solutions that don’t just fix your website, they actually help you grow your business.

My goal is simple: To help you identify what's holding your store back, and then implement targeted, cost-effective solutions that set you up for success.  Some developers will just do what you ask (install this app, change that theme) but aren’t interested in the larger process—like how all the moving parts of a Shopify store fit together.

Every new project I work on starts with a conversation. I'll ask you about what problems you're looking to fix, and then—together—we'll weigh your options. Once you fully understand the pros and cons of each approach, you'll have the information you need to choose which solution is going to be the best one, for you.

The Bright Bird Team

I'm a senior Shopify developer, but I do not work alone. I do most of the actual development work myself, but I also lead a small team of trusted experts who I involve on a project-by-project basis for stores that need the unique skills of a specialist.

It's a challenge to find reliable, skilled people to help with specific aspects of your store—like graphic design, branding, copy, marketing, advertising, accounting, and inventory management. With my team of Bright Bird experts, you can rest easy knowing that you’ve got great people helping you make your store the best it can be.

Beyond my team, I'm also an active member of the broader Shopify developer community. I'm a straight shooter. If I'm not the best person for your job, you can trust me to refer you to someone else who is.
