I got my start in curriculum design and development 15 years ago, and have enjoyed every stop on my vocational adventure since then. I spent 10 years in the higher education sector, designing, developing, and delivering instructor-led learning experiences. I have since taken that wealth of theoretical knowledge and practical experience to the private sector, where I love playing with the latest tech tools, from Articulate Storyline to Camtasia and Vyond (wait, I meant to say "beyond")!
In addition to coordinating a $3 million curriculum development project for the state of Washington, I have designed and developed an entire new hire training program, created customer onboarding videos for a tech startup, and created volunteer training assets for nonprofits.
I'm passionate about making learners' lives easier, including my own! If you're a lifelong learner, or if you employ lifelong learners, contact me and let's talk about how I can make your life easier too.

Training Coordinator | Operations Lead,

I design and develop new hire training experiences to help staff members onboard more easily to the SaaS platforms that the university uses. I also serve on the Safe Zone Ally training committee, where I collaboratively design and develop DEI training materials for the campus community.
Project Coordinator, WestEd
I coordinated a $3 million curriculum development program for the state of Washington's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. In this role, I successfully coordinated the workflow of a cross-functional team of proofreaders, graphic designers, content specialists, administrative personnel, and freelancers. In fact, my coordination work was so successful that I was sent to Olympia, Washington to provide client-facing meeting coordination.
Production Editorial Associate, Annual Reviews
I copyedited and proofread complex scientific research, as well as supporting the larger Production Department.
Instructional Consultant, UC Davis
I worked in the Center for Educational Effectiveness on a team of 12 other Consultants. We collaboratively designed, developed, and facilitated a campus-wide TA Orientation for new teaching associates, which reached approximately 450 new hires annually. We also designed, developed, and facilitated a 6-week workshop series--"Powerful Pedagogy"--which resulted in a certificate for all participants who completed the program. Additionally, we provided crucial faculty development services, such as Mid-Quarter Interviews, classroom observations, and learning asset review sessions.
Associate Instructor, Cal State L.A. and UC Davis
I designed, developed, and delivered expository writing curricula to adult learners. This included evaluating their writing products and tracking their progress via a Sakai-based LMS.
