About UpThere

Website design and development

UpThere‘s website design services are a branch of Lumsdon Consulting, a small business owned and operated by Liz Lumsdon since 2000.

Australian Business Registration Number: 3996 397 4553

UpThere specialises in designing websites for organisations or individuals who want clear, informative and easily navigated sites which can be easily maintained and are attractive but not unnecessarily “gimmicky” or flashy.

All website development by UpThere is carried out by the owner-designer, Liz Lumsdon.

About Liz Lumsdon

Liz first started working with computers in the nineteen-eighties, when a teacher at a Victorian TAFE (Technical and Further Education) college. In 1988 Liz won a State Training Board scholarship to undertake a Graduate Diploma in Computers in Education. She later extended these studies by completing a Master of Education degree at Ballarat University, focussing on the educational uses of computers in the community.

With the phenomenal growth of the internet, Liz returned to study website design and development intensively in 2001, after resigning from her full-time job to start her own small business.

Since then she has developed a range of sites for clients with differing needs, and she has never lost her fascination with the web as a brilliant means of communication. You can see samples of Liz’s web development on this site.Website portfolio
