I joined the Interactive eLearning team in the Fall of 2017, with my passion for developing long-term relationships and connections with people by blending process improvement, project management, leadership, problem-solving, instructional design, content delivery, andragogy, website management, program development, training, assisting others with professional development, and mentoring success across multiple online platforms using communications, innovative ideas, technology, and support.

My path as a lifelong learner brought me to Bellevue College in 2013, where I received my AA in the Fall of 2014, and my BA in the Fall of 2016 in Information Systems & Technology Cyber Security & Systems Administration. Most recently, I received my master’s in education, Instructional Design & Technology with the American College of Education in the Winter of 2023, after receiving my Instructional Design Certificate from the Online Learning Consortium in the Fall of 2018.
