Senior Learning Designer, Assessment


As a Senior Learning Designer in the School of Professional Studies, I collaborate with faculty as an advocate for curricular excellence, innovation in design and technology, universal design for learning, and superior student engagement and experience. I’m a lifelong learner, practitioner-manager, visual designer, and creative problem solver. And I love what I do!

Since joining the world of distance learning in 2014, I have been involved in nearly every role in the online course development process: instructor, teaching assistant, tutor, faculty development facilitator, subject matter expert, student, and, of course, instructional designer.
