Educational Technologist, Trainer, and Instructional Designer with over ten years’ experience in higher education

I am committed to creating meaningful, intentional, empathetic, and learner-centered teaching and learning experiences.

I am a bit of a theory nerd, and bring my appreciation of critical theoretical approaches, adult learning theory, and Universal Design for Learning into all the trainings I design, facilitate, and assess.

Before moving to the University of Colorado, where I currently work as an Instructional Consultant, I was the Pedagogy and Assessment Program Lead Librarian at Auraria Library (which serves the University of Colorado-Denver, Metropolitan State University Denver, and Community College of Denver.) I’m originally from the Florida panhandle and arrived in Denver by way of Atlanta, GA, where I previously worked as an Associate Professor and Instructional Services Librarian at the University of West Georgia.

I am a graduate of Florida State University, where I received a Masters in Library and Information Science (MLIS) and an MA in Interdisciplinary Humanities.
