I have thoroughly enjoyed a career in training and instructional design for 17 years. Since 2011, I've worked as an instructional design global consultant for a variety of customers; professions ranging from manufacturing, consulting, tax law, human resources to health care. Prior to this time, I worked full-time as a Human Resource Manager, as well as Instructional Design and Training Manager. The early start to my career is where my passion evolved for training and instructional design, so I decided to specialize in this area and I have never looked back!
I am proficient in a variety of training solutions including blended, virtual classroom, ILT, and eLearning, as well as, Microsoft office suites. I am proficient in Desire2learn (D2L) and have 2+ years' experience working with Cornerstone LMS platforms. I am also proficient in using the eLearning authoring tools Adobe Captivate (advanced certificate), Lectora and Articulate Storyline 2, which is my favorite.
In addition to the experience gained throughout my 17 year career, I earned and graduated Suma Cume Laude from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL. with a Bachelor Degree in Organizational Development and Leadership, as well as a Master of Science in Training and Development, of which I graduated with presidential honors.
