I love creating tools and experiences that enable shared understanding. In 2008, I received a Master’s Degree in Linguistics, which is the study of how we think, communicate, and learn. My career started as a university instructor, but later I transitioned into Corporate Instructional Design for the stability.
As an Instructional Designer working in a time of rapid technological growth, I’ve had to stay ahead of the curve so I could be ready to bring our workforce up to speed. The way we work has changed so drastically in recent years that an Instructional Designer is no longer just a workshop facilitator. My arsenal of learning experiences has become increasingly digital. And -gasp social.
As a result of these changes, I learned to flex my digital muscles to create online videos and elearning courses. This meant getting a camera and learning how to use it. I haven't looked back.
