About Me

A little more about me and why I created these courses

I’ve traveled to colleges, universities, and professional conferences in 32 states (and counting!). All of the flights, hotel stays, and taxi rides have given me the opportunity to see this beautiful country from coast to coast and meet educators from around the world.

I have been able to get a first-hand, ‘on the ground’ look at the current state of teaching and learning in higher education. I have learned so much about the challenges facing students, faculty, and future faculty in higher education today. I’m so excited to be able to share what I’ve learned (and continue to learn!) with you.

The future of faculty & graduate student development
I have been involved in faculty and graduate student professional development for the past 16 years. I’ve noticed professional development in higher education tends to rely heavily on “one and done” events to foster professional growth: go to a conference, attend a lunch-and-learn session, or participate in an on-campus workshop.

And, there never seems to be a time that works for everyone when it comes to workshops and events!

With these online on-demand professional development courses, I hope to connect with and support more faculty and graduate students in a different way. You can complete your courses anytime, from anywhere. It’s professional development at your own pace!


My husband, son, and our two rescue dogs live in a little town called Willow Springs, just south of Raleigh, North Carolina. We enjoy fishing, hiking, visiting local parks (and playgrounds!), and spending any time we can together as a family. In my “free” time (ha ha! I have a toddler…), I enjoy reading, watching television and movies, trying new restaurants, and cooking.

That’s my story…I look forward to working with you and learning more about your story!
