Nice to meet you.
(After this introduction, it’s all about YOU!)
THE VIVA TEAM.
THE FRONT OFFICE.
Kathleen Kroll Romana
Founder, Creative Director, Webmaster, WordPress Specialist, Graphic Artist, Helping Hand.
Equipped with a BS degree in Computer Science and 2 decades of IT experience at several major corporations in the NYC area, I switched gears and started Viva in 2006.
Building websites is the perfect melding of my tech background and a lifelong passion for creative arts and design. I wear most of the hats here, from receptionist to designer and more. When I am not working, chances are I am dancing — 5,6,7,8 — at a West Coast Swing social, or traveling to a warmer latitude with my husband.
THE BACK OFFICE.*

Viva? Yes, VIVA!
This was the closest I could find, then I shortened it to Viva:
From vivacious*: happy, lively and energetic in temper, conduct, or spirit.
