Seeking opportunities to have a lasting impact on this planet through my work with innovative organizations committed to designing, developing, and delivering transformative learning solutions.

Learning Experience
Design and Development

I work with subject matter experts across organizations and disciplines to translate educational and industry concepts into transformative learning experiences.

Curriculum Design and Content Development

I have extensive experience in the development and alignment of learning resources, and strive to create content that is both meaningful and accessible to all users.

and Editing

I create and publish original content that has been featured in a wide range of learning experiences, magazines, blogs, white papers, books, and case studies.

and  Workshops

I develop and deliver presentations and workshops on learning experience design, strategies for funding learning initiatives, and LX design effective practices.

and Mentoring

I coach other learning professionals to help them define personal success and reach their highest potential.

Over 25 years of experience designing, developing, delivering, and managing learning solutions.



Pioneering in the LX Design Space

As a learning and development professional, I specialize in working with teams to create novel learning experiences. I have a passion for helping others learn and grow, and I firmly believe that everyone has the ability to learn and improve.


I bring a positive lens to solving difficult problems and have a knack for fostering essential relationships with diverse groups of stakeholders. I strive to create an environment where those stakeholders feel comfortable taking risks and exploring new ideas, and work hard to build inclusive learning solutions that tap into the creativity and curiosity of our learners.

Take a few moments to explore my learning experience design and content development portfolios.
