I began my career studying the genetic contributors of Parkinson’s disease in the transparent nematode C.elegans. After earning my PhD, I moved to classroom instruction at post-graduate and secondary school levels before changing to the Instructional Design profession. My diverse experiences help me to hear the voice of the facilitator and learner and drive my passion for creating better learning environments. My Neuroscience background is also an asset for designing engagements that optimize the principles of the science of learning. I look forward to new collaborative opportunities to transform eLearning platforms for the future.
