Hello! I am an Instructional Designer with the ITS Learning and Innovation Group at Colgate University. With over 20 years experience in education, my primary role at Colgate is to manage our learning platforms while researching emerging technologies – sift through the many to find the few that will support the teaching and learning process in a meaningful way. I am deeply involved in collaborating with our faculty to develop digital learning environments.
Beginning my career as a fifth grade teacher, I jumped up to higher-ed at Skidmore College and enjoyed 13 years there partnering with faculty in their use of technology integration. Followed up with a brief stint serving at Babson College in their Blended and Online Learning managing their “Innovation Pipeline.” Boston was amazing but I yearned for the private, liberal arts environment I was so familiar with… I love Colgate and its rich history and expansive educational experience. I work with a group of diverse, talented, intellectually sophisticated colleagues who challenge me and themselves to be the best we can be in a setting that brings together teaching, learning and technology.
I hold a BA degree from Norwich University, VT in English and Elementary Education, an M.Ed from Columbia University, and currently working on an Advanced Degree in Instructional Design from the University of Wisconsin, Stout.
