Hello!

TEACHING IS THE FACILITATION OF EXPERIENCE.

 

LEARNING IS THE FORGING OF

NEW CONNECTIONS.

 

I am a COGNITIVE SOCIAL SCIENTIST:

Someone who understands thought, learning, and mental organization as it relates to how people and groups of people behave.

I've designed and delivered technology-enhanced instructional experiences on everything from math to maternal health across 4 continents, and 1 fact remains consistent:  EDUCATION IS THE KEY

to cultivating more positive attitudes, actions and interactions.

LET'S START KEEPING UP &

START GETTING AHEAD!

5 Things to Know

About Me 

1.

I love a challenge! I am driven to find positive solutions to the BIG problems we face as a global society and EDUCATION IS THE KEY! !

2.

My undergrad from McGill University focused on Sociology (the study of interactions within human society) & Developmental Psychology (in particular how we construct our reality).

My Master's in Teaching from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE/UT), looked at innovative ways of measuring success, and my PhD from York University, explored how to use technology for good instead of evil when it comes to education.

3.

My favourite part about being an entrepreneur is the fact that I make my own schedule. I value my time and will not waste yours.

4.

I believe that educational experiences are all about the people in them, and can help you personalize  instruction and content to ensure maximum uptake and engagement from your learning community.

5.

I've been a proud entrepreneur for over 10 years now, and have worked with a lot of really cool people on really cool projects.
