About me

PROFESSIONAL PATH

Demonstrated achiever with a strong work ethic and several years of experience working with adult learners in higher education. I am skilled at learning new concepts quickly, working well under pressure, and communicating ideas clearly and effectively. I have extensive knowledge of curriculum development and have worked to develop content for online learning on platforms such as Blackboard, Canvas, and D2L.

I have my doctorate in Higher Education Administration this encompasses skills like legal issues, public relations, leadership, human resources, business administration, and facilities management.

For fun I scuba dive with my son, travel to see the world and tinker with new technologies.
