First and foremost, I am an educator. I have been in education since 1996, teaching originally in K-12 and moving to the higher education arena in 2004. Since then, online education has been my focus providing multiple perspectives as a student, designer, reviewer, researcher, administrator and faculty. My current position allows me to collaborate with faculty in the design, development, and delivery of online instruction; manage the instructional design area; provide pedagogical support to faculty via an online training course, workshops, and one-on-one support; and teach. I also serve as UAB Quality Matters'' Institutional Representative.
