Learning never exhausts the mind.

ABOUT ME

WHAT ARE MY VALUES AS A LEARNING PROFESSIONAL?
SEE WHAT MAKES ME TICK.

A curious creator at heart, I value the human side of learning and development solutions. We live in a complex world and I believe the cause-and-effect relationships among data, information, and people must be evaluated to create long-term success within an organization. I will "push up my sleeves" to dig into long-term solutions rather than quick-fix courses. In my spare time, you'll also find my sleeves pushed up: in the dirt gardening or with a paint brush on canvas.

LEADERSHIP

WHAT IS MY IMPACT AS A LEADER?
SCAN SOME FUN FACTS.

I grew a first-generation learning team to 17 individual contributors and 15 contractors from "scratch" beginning in July of 2019. In October of 2019, I led the acquisition of the organization's first learning management system (LMS). The COVID pandemic escalated an imminent launch of the LMS in March 2020 by a team of 7 in 4 weeks, transforming the 100% in-person training organization to virtual and eventually a blended approach. Today, the team maintains a 98% customer service rating for over 50K users.

50k hAPPY customers

Since learning management system (LMS) inception in 2019, managed by a LMS team of 3.

98% CUSTOMER RATING

Held year after year and managed by Zendesk Helpdesk implemented in 2020.

185K COMPLETIONS

From a library of more than 2,500 courses in 2022 alone, including home-grown and acquired content.
