I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to follow my love of learning, research, and instruction in many directions and across several venues. 

I have traveled to more than a dozen countries, sometimes as an invited speaker, sometimes for the purpose of combing through research libraries, and sometimes just to learn about other cultures. 

I earned a Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Birmingham (UK) in 2013. Through this experience, I learned how to master a new field of study, manage my research and writing according to institutional timelines, and collaborate with peers and thought leaders. 

Over the course of my project, I learned how to learn. I gained confidence in my ability to learn and apply new ideas and skills, and to tackle new challenges.

I have been teaching in higher education since 2012, in both online and in-person modalities. I have designed and revised courses to reflect the best in eLearning standards. 

As an author/editor, I enjoy presenting complex ideas in understandable ways. I have authored more than twenty peer-reviewed publications. I have also found joy in helping other writers get their point across effectively, serving as copy editor and managing editor of academic books and a journal since 2017.

I am excited by opportunities to collaborate with others, to build networks, and to support projects with the potential to make a positive difference in people‚Äôs lives through Learning Experience Design, project management, and research-driven leadership.
