Summary

I am an experienced instructional designer, educational technologist and e-Learning developer with over 15 years of experience and work through a variety of media within the graphic design and interactive design. I have taught students of all ages, from toddlers through college professors. This wide range of experience allows me to provide end-to-end eLearning and instructional design services as well as provide support during any stage of the development process.

I offer end-to-end instructional design and e-Learning services. I am comfortable with any level of project, including fully remote or face2face training. This experience also makes me an excellent team member for any eLearning project. I can easily step in to any phase of a needs assessment, design, development, implementation, or evaluation process.

With my education, I not only gained the ability to teach and design curricula for diverse students but also understand how to support teachers in implementing meaningful technology in their classrooms, use a multitude of programs that can be applied in education, and incorporate technology to help students learn. If you are looking for the most effective way to provide end-user training and support during a technology or program implementation I would love to tell you more about how my system can help this process.
