About Me

I'm a Senior Instructional Designer in the Department of Academic and Instructional Innovation, where I work with faculty to help develop excellent online learning experiences for Samuel Merritt University students.  Before coming to Samuel Merritt University in 2015, I worked as an editor and media producer for the educational publisher Pearson. Some of my interests as an instructional designer are online/blended learning,  accessibility, and the neuroscience of learning.

I have been teaching in the Bachelor of Nursing degree program since 2019.
