Instructional Designer

241 Walter Library

After graduating with my MLIS from Dominican University in 2004, I worked for four years as a Circulation Librarian at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, MN. In 2008, I moved positions to become Mitchell's first Educational Technologist working in areas of integrating technology into the law school classroom and building synchronous and asynchronous online and hybrid courses. While working at Mitchell, I earned a Master of Arts in Learning Technology with a certificate in e-Learning from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis.

I started working at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in 2012 as the Libraries' Instructional Designer, I collaborate with librarians and library staff on building online instructional material, such as tutorials, videos and presentations. I enjoy investigating new technologies to improve online instruction as well as technologies that work to improve access to instructional materials.
