Instructional Designer


Welcome to my design portfolio!

Thanks for visiting my Instructional Design Portfolio. I developed this site as a student in the University of Georgia's Master of Education in Learning, Design, and Technology. I also work at the University of Georgia as an Instructional Designer in the Office of Online Learning. I have over 12 years of experience in higher education, with roles in enrollment management and student success prior to joining UGA. I decided to pursue a career in instructional design after realizing the exponential impact that a well-designed course has on student success. I recently moved to Athens, Georgia, and can proudly say, "It's great to be a Georgia Bulldog!"
