Hello! I currently am an instructional designer at Claim University, with an M.Ed., and a recent Ed. S. I design learning solutions in a giant warehouse full of simulations. These are full-scale houses, a medical lab (which I was instrumental in designing), 18-wheelers, burnt garages, and more. I also design online and face-to-face classes, develop soft-skill and medical content, create illustrations, edit videos, and work with analytics. My graduate research was in motivation, computational literacy, human needs-HCI, self-determination, and engagement of people in online environments, especially games.
In my heart I am an artist first, and have been internationally recognized for my scientific illustrations. I also have over forty medical illustrations in Merriam Webster Medical Dictionary, and a permanent show at Greenfield Community College. I left fifteen years of diagnostic human genetics laboratory work (and lab management), and have taught 7th grade science in an urban school.
If you are interested in consultation work, or for more information about my research, I’d be happy to speak with you.
