In my working life before I retired, I was a Learning Architect working in the Talent Development and Instructional Design space. I have a broad background in learning organizations in corporate, educational, and nonprofit sectors. I also have served in church leadership roles and have degrees in: communications, history/antiquities, teaching, and religion. I have two advanced certifications from Cornell University. I’m a certified dispute resolution mediator and an adjunct professor in the fields of communication and religion.
