In a world where you can be anything, BE KIND. 

I help businesses achieve their training goals through innovative designs and high-impact courses that exceed your expectations and bridge the gap between your employee's skills and performance. Using my years of experience as an educator, my custom learning experiences are engaging and interactive and result in behavior changes, knowledge retention, and performance improvement. I specialize in creating unique instructor-led training (ILT), virtual instructor-led training (vILT), eLearning, microlearning, and blended learning.

My Process: I use the ADDIE, SAM, and Agile processes as an instructional designer. I start with a needs analysis, ask questions to understand the desired outcome, and focus on the details. I can set priorities with backward planning and create a timeline to develop attainable goals. I design learning with opportunities for branching scenarios and real-world problem-solving experiences. I enjoy collaborating with others to develop ideas that successfully improve performance goals.

I am a dedicated instructional designer who loves figuring out how to make learning experiences successful.

Some of my favorite things to do are hiking, reading, and traveling.  Road trips are the best!  One of my best road trips was traveling from Pittsburgh, PA to Glacier National Park, MT.  Along the way, we saw Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park.  Our most recent vacation was to Hawaii. My goal is to visit all 50 states.
