Educator | Designer | Storyteller

Education

Everything I do folds into the art of teaching and learning. Often, the stories I create come from a place of growth and change. Whether it’s classroom instruction professional development, or parenting, I teach from a place of care and with a commitment to freedom and equity.
Instructional Designers are trained professionals that offer skills and insight few others can. We work through systems thinking and plan strategically on both large and small scales. We use a variety of tools to help people meet their goals and outcomes.

Storytelling

I was born into an oral storytelling tradition. I find joy in the exchange of ideas and experiences. Yes, I write in a variety of genres and I am a strong public speaker. But for me, those are pieces of a larger art form, a deeper practice.

I am passionate about work that is creative, purposeful, and committed to the pursuit of equity.
