I’ve worked in ed tech in both private and public sector settings since completing my MA in EdTech at Concordia University (2004). My work as an elearning product manager took me from Montreal to New York and then to London where I spent time as a management consultant. My hopes to return to my home town of Vancouver became a reality in 2008 when I joined the JIBC. My projects have ranged from designing open educational resources (OER) to the use of emerging technologies for elearning to design of award-winning academic/blended courses and programs.

What are you up to these days?

I have spent the last year, after 2.5 years seconded with BCcampus, focussing on our team and the amazing work they are doing. I'm passionate about open education work with colleagues to advocate for open at JIBC. This past year I have had the opportunity to Co-Chair the BC Teaching and Learning Council, staying connected across our sector.

leader, innovator, advocate, ally
Creative people and great ideas give me the energy to keep going. I like to blaze trails whether that's in the great outdoors or at work.
