Educate, coordinate, and inspire.I strive to meet learning and development needs with creativity and enthusiasm. I am a results-driven professional skilled in utilizing people, procedures, ideas, and technology to design, develop, and implement feasible solutions to facilitate learning, performance, and process improvement within an organization.
I am a learning professional who is excited by opportunities to be creative and meet the needs of people.
This initially took me on a path to teaching. I spent 18 years in secondary and post-secondary classrooms. I have taught just about everything under the social studies umbrella.
I love to learn, so when the opportunity presents itself, I take it. While teaching in Mississippi, I was offered to participate in a Master’s Program for teachers of American History. Getting in late, I completed the 3-year program in 2 years and used my Master’s to teach part-time at the college level. That was a great opportunity to work with learning adults. That was when I really started considering what my life after high school teaching might be.
I began to pursue more opportunities working with my teaching peers. Leadership roles on my teaching teams, curriculum development, best practices instruction, and even program development. My experience with creating the credit recovery program at East Meck High School brought me to consider program development and program management in the corporate space.
In 2018 I left the classroom to pursue a learning and development role for an industrial distribution company. in this role, I have gained experience in designing and developing training content and program and project management. In 2020 my role shifted to focus more on the creative side of learning and development.
Throughout my career, I have sought opportunities to grow personally and professionally. While I am good at training and instructing a group, I thoroughly enjoy the creative side. I love technology, new programs, and developing tools to help others improve their role.
