What can I do for you?

My unique background and experience is especially suited to helping organizations in transition.

  • Are you in the process of transforming instruction into new forms and formats to meet the changing needs of learners?

These are just a few of the knowledge and skill items that I bring with me.

For many years, I have had the great privilege to be an Instructional Designer and faculty member in higher education. It is my love of learning that drew me to instructional design, where I learn from and collaborate with faculty across a spectrum of curriculums. My own experience as a faculty member teaching graduate courses in instructional design (ID) and e-learning development has been key in building rapport with subject matter experts.
