Some spider species are easy to identify as they're relatively common and well-known or though less common, have unusual or distinctive enough markings/coloration, they won't generally be mis-identified.
Since you live in the US, the species will be better identified by another American rather than someone from other another continent. Bug Guide (hosted by the Department of Entomology at Iowa State University) has an ID Request page where images can be posted and amateur and professional experts will look at and identify. You need to register but it's free. The clearer and more detailed your photo(s), the faster it'll be viewed and answered.
It's worth joining. There's a lot to learn and you may find learning about 'bugs' addictive with no bad effects?
