About Me:

I am the Learning & Development Product Manager for UJ Online. (Basically, I work with teams from across the university to improve the quality of online products like courses, training, etc.) I have a heart for teachers, a knack for logistics, and a passion for creating practical solutions. 

Before working at UJ, I worked in Trade Education and Texas Public Schools. I am still a certified teacher with the Texas Education Agency and I work remotely from in Austin, Texas. I am excited to bring my background in teaching, curriculum development, program development, and institutional effectiveness to support curriculum design and faculty training at UJ. Go Jimmies!

About Me: 

I am the Instructional Designer for UJ's Professional Studies and Accelerated divisions. I am a proponent of lifelong learning and believe that a growth mindset is key to supporting the pursuit of knowledge throughout one's life. 

Before working at UJ, I served in higher educational institutions across the country as an English and Composition faculty instructor and Writing and Tutoring Center director. I'm excited to bring theory and practice together to support UJ faculty and staff in creating an effective learning experience for our UJ community.
