Bio:
I am the Associate Director for Learning Technologies in the Information School at the University of Washington. I spent 20 years in the k-12 arena as a teacher and then a district level administrator before I left to start my own consulting company. I have been in higher ed since 2011 and really enjoy it. I "eat my own dog food" when it comes to online as I work for the university in Seattle but work full time, online from my home in Rainbow Beach, Queensland in Australia. Our home is in a small, remote, beach community and we love to sail, swim, kayak and paddleboard on a daily basis.
