I direct and support education and digital learning experiences for non-profit organizations, museums, universities, after school programs, K-12 environments and manufacturing institutions serving diverse audiences and learners.
With 12+ years of expertise in the field of museum education, digital learning, and educational content development, I have engaged diverse audiences in multiple modes of interaction with museum collections and visual art. I hold a master's degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education with further graduate and professional training from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
As a visual learner and designer, constructivist, and visual artist, I support inter-connected STEAM learning practices through any and all forms of media and disciplines. I work with diverse audiences across all classes of society and have developed strong partnerships with community partners, leaders, and funders.
In addition to my work in Iowa City, IA., I illustrate for Children's Books, tinker with electronics and creatively design with art and technology. I take time to mentor the next generation of life-long creative thinkers, museum-goers, scientists and educators.
