LTC Program Manager
Phone: (206) 592-3357
I joined Highline College as program manager of the Learning and Teaching Center in 2018. Prior to coming to Highline, I served as the faculty development coordinator for the Seattle College District. I've taught at the associate and bachelor levels in the hospitality and service occupations division for 15 years, including at Renton and South Seattle, where I was tenured.
I remember during my first teaching position going through a year-long series of pedagogical workshops. It was in the first of those workshops where I fell in love with the scholarship of teaching and learning in general, and more specifically with the idea of faculty development.
In a previous career, I worked in human resource development, managing a division of training and development for Bank of America as an AVP. The division was responsible for internal consulting for various lines of business, as well as the design and delivery of professional development workshops for employees.
I earned my B.A. from the University of Washington, and my M.A. Ed. - Curriculum Leadership from Argosy University.
In my free time, I love to travel to Asia. I'm an avid gatherer of culinary ingredients and like to hunt for chanterelle and lobster mushrooms, as well as to go crabbing and clam-digging. I live with my spouse of 13 years in Seattle, and plan to retire in Thailand or Mexico.
