My initial work experience in an academic setting was at the University of Washington in Seattle, my home town.

I earned another degree and worked in merchandising and product development for about 15 years, in both Washington and California.

On-the-job training experiences - good, bad & non-existent - created an interest in instructional materials and education. I began working and teaching at Santa Rosa Junior College.

My interest in online education led me to complete a Master of Science in Education-Online Learning & Teaching at CSU. In 2017 I completed a Master of Science in Merchandising.
