Six years ago, I started building my business part-time on the side while working full time at a research university. For 16 years, I taught workshops, advised graduate students, and served on committees to enhance teaching and learning. The more I traveled and spoke with educators, the more I set my sights on “someday” turning my part-time side job into a full-time business.
“Someday” came in 2015 after my son was born. I decided it was time to make the leap and take my career in a new direction. I enjoyed my time working in a university setting, but I really enjoy working with faculty and graduate students beyond the scope of one campus.
Since 2011, I’ve visited 31 states (and counting!) across the country. I’ve traveled to colleges, universities, and professional conferences facilitating workshops, delivering keynotes, and meeting with faculty to talk about teaching and learning in higher education.
All of the flights, hotel stays, and taxi rides have given me the opportunity to see this beautiful country from coast to coast and meet educators from around the world. I have been able to get a first-hand, ‘on the ground’ look at the current state of teaching and learning in higher education.
I have learned so much about the challenges facing students and faculty in higher education today. And now, I’m so excited to be able to share what I’ve learned (and continue to learn!) with you.
