I have been teaching and facilitating classes at Santa Rosa Junior College since 1996. I currently teach all online courses and love the freedom and flexibility it offers to students.

I also work as a Senior Instructional Designer at Collin College, where I assist faculty in the development of their online courses, conduct webinars in online teaching and learning, and develop online content in Canvas.

I enjoy learning and try to take a few classes every semester to keep my skills current. I have completed many of the Adobe classes and earned my Master's Degree at an online college.
