I would consider myself a lifelong learner, which is why it is so important to me to help others learn and grow. After starting my career teaching band and orchestra in the public school system in North Carolina, I transitioned to the world of adult learning and development in 2003 while working as the education coordinator for a real estate school.
In addition to the real estate industry, I have experience in higher education and currently work for Inmar, Inc - an analytics company which focuses on the CPG and healthcare industries. My specialties include instructional design & development, training delivery, and leading project teams to design learning opportunities that help people be successful and confident in their work. Because of my passion for learning, I worked to earn my Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) certification in May of 2014. I am currently working toward obtaining my Master's degree in Leadership and Organizational Behavior, with a concentration in Executive Coaching.
I am active in my local ATD Chapter, and have filled several local board positions. I enjoy giving back to ATD, and am honored to serve as a National Advisor for Chapters. Outside of ATD, I am an amazingly blessed wife and mother to 2 fabulous, active children who are growing up way too fast!
