My path to ID and eLearning has been a winding one, starting with my undergraduate degree in community health. After working and volunteering with several organizations, I found I had a strong interest in working with families adding a new baby to their lives. I’ve worked as a hospital based childbirth educator and run my own doula business for many years.
As I worked to become more effective in that work, I discovered a passion for creating learning experiences that people enjoy and that create lasting effects.

I live in the mountains of Utah, where the views take my breath away on a near daily basis.
When I am not working, I enjoy nontraditional photography, road trips with no itinerary, rocky coastlines, national parks and spending time with my husband and three daughters.
