Professional Summary

I come to the University of Cincinnati after a 9 year tenure with Staples Incorporated; with experience in their Retail, Operations, and Dotcom business units. As a Learning Professional there, I worked to design and implement corporate training curriculums consistent with adult learning principles for a variety of classroom applications, including virtual and e-learning. Now, as an Instructional Designer for the CETIS team with the College of Allied Health, I strive to incorporate a systematic process of creating instructional materials in both classroom and  online environments. I am proficient in Adobe software, WebEx and virtual classroom platforms, course construction models, interaction and mental models, MLO, CBT, and engagement training.  I am an active member of GCATD and offer my talents in video production as a Programing Content Provider for the Telecommunications Board of Northern Kentucky – a public access network in the northern Kentucky area.
