I enjoy collaborative relationships to make
the consulting and development process fun and productive!
I’m a training and development professional with 25 years of experience leading and managing all aspects of corporate training programs with extensive expertise in Instructional Design and eLearning development. My experiences also include: visual and graphic design and audio and video production. I have a broad range of experience using the Articulate360 suite, Adobe suite, TechSmith Camtasia, and GoAnimate.
Since stepping away from full-time corporate work, I've been able to maximize my experiences and skills in learning and design consulting as well as instructional design and storyboard/scripting. I've been designing and producing high-quality learning experiences for the University of Minnesota, Mayo Clinic, Bluetree Network, Communities In Schools, eLearning Brothers, Freshwater Society, and SAI Global...to name a few.
I have deep experience in developing strategies for learning technology ecosystems that provide a well blended, balanced and effective experience for learners. I develop and maintain relationships with internal customers to properly align training and development capabilities and deliverables in order to effectively meet corporate training objectives.
I energetically lead teams of creative elearning developers. I effectively Identify individual and team strengths in order to best align staff to the needs of customers. Comfortable collaborating with all levels of leadership to ensure operational service lines are effectively working together.
Self-motivated to research, experiment with and assess new and innovative delivery modalities. Initiate and maintain professional organization and professional relationships in the Training and Development field in order to stay informed of industry trends, tools, and opportunities.
I’ve had many mentors in my life who have helped me both personally and professionally. Mentoring others who are interested in elearning or just getting started in their elearning development careers gives me the opportunity to pay it forward. I’ll take any chance I can to talk about Articulate Storyline, elearning development tools, learning technology ecosystem or the training industry in general.
