I have 20+ years of professional experience in instructional design and technology (IDT), librarianship, management, and have delivered instruction in multiple modalities. I have complementary backgrounds in library science and instructional design which enable me to offer a unique perspective on the theory and the application of learning design. I have a deep working knowledge of traditional learning management systems (LMSs) such as Blackboard, D2L / Brightspace, Canvas and Moodle and more specialized systems; my experiences with LMSs and related technology add a powerful dynamic and is especially valuable when training stakeholders.

I am fortunate to have an enriching professional life and at the same time, keeping an ear to the ground for new opportunities. I am currently based in Chicago and work in higher education. I am open to fully remote and hybrid positions in Chicago and other locations in the United States in higher education, corporate, or consulting environments. I look forward to creating meaningful change with you.
