I have spent the past 14 years impacting education. The first 8 years of my career were spent as a high school social studies teacher where I taught World History, US History, Government, AP Government & Politics, Economics, and AP Macroeconomics. I left the classroom after I completed my Masters Degree where I studied Educational Technology Leadership. During the first two years in a central district role, I acted as an online teacher, LMS administrator, coordinator for the distance program, and liaison between the curriculum and IT departments. While in my coordinator role, I won the Excellence in Education Award for Inspiration and High Impact from the Tempe, Arizona Diablo charity organization. In 2014, I joined Instructure as a Solutions Engineer. In my time serving in this role I have worked with a large number of K12 and Higher Ed institutions throughout the US and Canada. In 2017 I completed my doctorate in Education Leadership and published by dissertation entitled, "Examining Student and Teacher Attitudes of Education Technology and Perceptions of Each Other."
