Performance and Reliability with Rogue Web Works

When Eric and Robin Gotfrid, owners of Rogue Web Works, first visited the Rogue Valley in 2005. They knew right away that this was the community and the place for them. They already had a thriving business in Half Moon Bay, California, where they provided neighboring merchants with custom web design and hosting services. Since moving to the Rogue Valley, Eric has engaged with local businesses, offering everything from top-tier web hosting to comprehensive website management. " Referral business from happy clients has been keeping me very busy," Eric said.

We caught up with Eric and asked him what makes web hosting at Rogue Web Works such a great opportunity for Rogue Valley business people.
"You get more performance and reliability than you see with the big hosting providers. We put a lot more resources into our hosting network, and users can see the difference."

Rogue Wave Now Offering Guided
SUP Tours on the Rogue River

If you've been to any of the area lakes over the past few years, chances are you've seen a stand-up paddle boarder. SUP is wildly popular on flat water, and now, thanks to the likes of Rogue Valley native Jake Baracker, you can take guided SUP tours down the Rogue River.
Just last month Jake launched his guide business, Rogue Wave SUP Outfitter and Guide, LLC. "I want to share the stoke of paddle boarding and surfing in a way that is accessible to locals," Jake said. "With the popularity of flat water paddle boarding growing locally, I felt there was a need for an experienced paddler to introduce others to SUP on local rivers."

Building Blocks Learning Center

Medford native Kristin Carnighan, the founder of Building Blocks Learning Center, has now teamed up with lifelong friend Heather Welch. After Heather substituted for Kristin last year, she knew she'd be a perfect fit at Building Blocks.
"Heather and I have been close friends for 25 years and have been able to share ideas and techniques for inspiring and motivating children to learn and grow," Kristin said. "She is a very energetic, passionate and compassionate individual. Building Blocks Learning Center is lucky to have such an amazing teacher.
"I believe that each student comes to class with a backpack full of knowledge," Kristin continued. "Our job is to help them unpack it, learn from it, and share it with others."

Wicklund Veterinary Care

Medford resident Jennifer Wicklund grew up wanting to be a veterinarian, as do many young girls. But in college, that dream got away from her and she took up the study of geology. "This led me to working in the field of paleontology for a short time and having the experience of a lifetime digging dinosaur bones in the deserts of Wyoming!" Jennifer said.
After growing up in Medford, Wicklund spent 16 years in Minnesota, and after conversation with a long-lost relative, she pursued a veterinary studies as a second career. "Upon graduation from veterinary school in 2007, I moved back to Medford to be closer to my family and start private veterinary practice at Best Friends Animal Hospital," Jennifer said.

NewAge Natural & Organic Carpet Cleaning

When Michael Kozak first started NewAge Natural and Organic Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning in 1989 he was lucky to get involved with and learn from some very high end interior designers, fabric protection companies, and two cleaners that were highly respected in the industry. "I got educated in the industry from some of the best who are now no longer around, and I learned how to clean the finest carpeting, upholstery, and fabrics available including hand-knotted oriental rugs," Michael said.
In the 25 years since, NewAge has cleaned million dollar homes to car interiors, and anything in between. "I realized that the chemicals everyone else was using were toxic and dangerous, and I did not want to expose my customers or myself to these residues," he continued. "So we clean with a truck-mounted system with non-toxic cleaners and extremely hot water, which is a very effective method that won't off gas in your home."
