Real Estate Webmasters Appoints Moriah Kemila as New Front End Development Manager
Real Estate Webmasters Inc (REW) recently announced the appointment of Moriah Kemila as the new Front End Development Manager. With 15 years of experience working at REW as a Web Designer and Squad Lead, Moriah brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the position.
“I’m so excited to move into a leadership role at REW and to help support an amazing team of talented designers whose work ethic and commitment to customer success I find so inspiring,” said Moriah.
Originally from Courtenay, BC, Moriah completed a Print and Web Program at a local college in her hometown and then transferred into the Digital Media Technology Program at Malaspina University-College (before it was Vancouver Island University as we know it today).
“When I first started the Print and Web Program, I wasn’t sure which path I was going to take, but ultimately I decided on web design,” Moriah said. “It was something I really loved. And I saw that there were great opportunities for it.”
After backpacking through Europe the summer after graduation, and working on freelance design projects, Moriah was referred to Morgan Carey and REW through a former classmate from her program at VIU.
“I started with REW back in 2006 when there were only about 10 or 15 of us,” she said. “Morgan, Carrie, Phil, Mike, Matt—everyone has been so supportive. I recall day one Phil showing me the ropes, and fast forward to this year, we worked together on our biggest project to date, RISMedia.”
Over the years, Moriah has worked on key projects for REW as a Web Designer and a Squad Lead working with and supporting a team of both developers and designers. Her new role will encompass leading, mentoring, and developing the design team. She has no doubt that with such a solid team in place, they can continue to deliver the high standards and quality of work that REW is well known for.
“I have so much respect and appreciation for this team,” Moriah said. “I’m so grateful for the support and encouragement I’ve received from REW over the years and I want to provide that same feeling to the team. I’m excited to watch them grow and continue delivering incredible work to our customers.”
When Moriah isn’t delving into design, she loves snowboarding, scuba diving, painting, and photography. She also enjoys hiking and exploring new places on Vancouver Island with her husband James, and their labrador retriever Jackson, who she says is, “a bundle of energy who brings us so much joy every day.”
