I have 3+ years of professional experience as an academic librarian specializing in information literacy, online learning, and instructional design. I work with instructors and lead a team of librarians to create effective and engaging online instructional materials for a range of academic disciplines that meet learning outcomes.

I work with a variety of tools including LibApps, Camtasia, Piktochart, Powtoons, Blackboard, Adobe, and Articulate Storyline. I draw from the ADDIE model of instructional design, and follow Universal Design for Learning and Web Content Accessibility guidelines.
