Western Governor's University

United States of America - Salt Lake City


I work as an instructional designer in the College of Health Professions at Western Governors University. We are a competency-based online university with 90,000 students enrolled. The objective of our college is to provide state-of-the-art online courses employing high levels of interactivity, virtual simulation and immersive environments for our nursing students. With almost 8 years of professional experience, I have worked on professional development projects for teachers, foreign language instructional courses for high school students and professional development for faculty at the University of Oregon prior to my employment at WGU. I live in Eugene, OR where my 19-year-old son attends the University of Oregon. I enjoy getting out in nature, cooking, photography, writing and travel.
