Seattle Central College
Instructional Designer
Seattle, WA
I have had the privilege of serving students and faculty as an instructional designer since 2010. I have guided instructors through the creation of course content ranging from health care standards and procedures to first-year student success and English composition. My focus areas as a designer are Universal Design for Learning, accessible course design, assessment and student engagement. I'm looking forward to working with each of you!

Educational Philosophy
Education and learning should be not only student-focused, but student-directed. All the work and preparation that we do as instructors should be aimed at supporting students in achieving our stated (and informed) course outcomes. Learning is a process that works best when students can apply their own individual strengths in order to incorporate the content into their own lives in meaningful, applicable ways. As educators, we must empower learners to explore, to make mistakes, to find and make corrections, and to locate and integrate learning into their own stories.
