About the Intelligent Choice!
I totally get excited about any opportunity to learn or share my experience with others. My vision is to continuously improve learning outcomes through professional development and quality assurance. I want to improve the educational experience for students by improving instructional methods and media to improve the critical thinking skills of students enrolled in accelerated, blended learning programs. I have a Bachelor of Art degree in graphic design and a Master of Business Administration in eBusiness. Additionally, I have completed all of the coursework necessary to earn a Doctorate of Educational Leadership Degree specializing in Educational Technology.
As a native Detroiter, I have the combined skill sets of both a designer and a marketer, with over 15 years of combined print and web design experience, as well as 3 years of marketing experience. I have a solid reputation for upholding high ethical standards while realizing corporate goals and objectives.
Throughout my career I have had an opportunity to develop strategic alliances with various organizations such as the 4731 Gallery, Detroit Public Libraries, The New Detroit Science Center, and Pewabic Pottery to further organizational objectives. It has been my desire to facilitate a better integration between creativity, technology, and business to facilitate more innovation.
I have been teaching for nine years at the post-secondary level. Some of the courses I have taught include digital imaging, web design and development, and multimedia development. I have over 20 years of industry experience in print and web design, which includes 10 years as the co-owner of a marketing and design firm. I have also been an Adobe Education Trainer since 2014.
