Hi I'm Katie Woodmansee. I stumbled my way into instructional design after spending the first few years out of college working a variety of customer service and administrative jobs, culminating in working for a non-profit educational foundation, where I started to understand that being an expert didn't always translate into being an expert teacher. I decided to go back to school at Colorado State University, so I could become an expert on learning to assist experts in other fields transfer their valuable knowledge in an engaging and effective way. I earned a masters degree in Adult Education and Training and since then I've been working as an instructional designer, mostly in higher education.
As I've worked in the field I have found a real passion for serving students. I truly believe that education of any kind should be engagaing while transferring the information needed. I love it when something I've designed gets both a student and an instructor excited about the subject, to me there's nothing more rewarding.
When I'm not working I like to spend as much time outside as possible, exploring Coloraodo, traveling, and hanging out with my family and my dog and cat!
