Résumé

My professional life has focused on education, technology, and literacy/composition–whether in the classroom or the corporate environment. As a classroom teacher, I’ve worked with high-school-aged students in English, humanities, and creative writing courses, both in person and online. As a trainer and consultant, I’ve worked with adults to help them improve their own teaching, learn and apply new technologies, and develop new educational programs and support platforms. As a writer, editor, and online content manager, I’ve created instructional documentation and online training modules and have developed and managed a range of online databases and content management systems.

In short, I enjoy teaching and finding ways to leverage technology to support learning.
