About Me

Combining extensive experience with cutting edge research

When I started in the elearning industry, with Deloitte Consulting years ago, the word "elearning" hadn't even been invented yet. But we explored the area of distance learning, and that's where my passion for online learning started. 

Since then, I've worked with hundreds of companies around the globe - from Black and Decker, Toyota and Whirlpool to the United Nations, Curves, Iron Mountain, and many many more (some you've heard of, some you haven't.) I've gained knowledge and experience across all different types of companies (with different operating models) and across all different industries to help them move from classroom training to online learning, saving them time, money and efficiency. 

I've worked with companies to design and develop online learning, consulted with them on best practices for learning organizations and advised on moving into a culture of continuous learning. 

In 2015, I completed my PhD in Instructional Design for Online Learning. My dissertation on using Agile practices in Instructional Design led me to research Learning Agility. And now, I have a set of best practices to guide L & D organizations to be Learning Agile. This site is dedicated to helping you get the information you need to be able to pivot to learning agility.
