From Recreation to Technology

I chose a non-traditional career path from professor in recreation and sport to a career in technology.

Each of my teaching and research experiences inform my work as an instructional designer, technologist, and web developer.

    Creating the classroom experience

    As a former professor I learned how to look at an experience through the eyes of my students. Each in-class lesson, course content page posted online, or assignments I created was developed with my students' interests in mind.

    Teaching Online

    I taught my first online course in 2006 and have taught approximately twenty courses online, or partially online, since this date. After this initial course, I challenged myself advance my HTML and CSS skills to present online courses that went above and beyond text-only presentations.

    Transition to Technology

    Technology inspired me to create and improve my online courses. I learned how to create courses with advanced web development techniques and how to leverage multimedia assets. I started my career as an instructional designer and my love for technology and web development grew into a hobby outside work hours.

  • 2012 - 2016

    Professional Development

    I set my own professional goals and learned how to incorporate JQuery and Bootstrap into the sites I created for instructors as well as for my own professional development projects. Along the way I also learned how to build my own instances of Moodle and websites that collect user information

    Expanding My Skill Set

    Recently, I have been inspired to learn how to work with databases, Amazon Web Services, and WordPress. I hope to continue expanding my skill set to master these tools and to continuously grow with the ever-evolving landscape of technology.
