It is almost impossible to watch a

sunset and not dream. 

If you can dream it, you can do it.

A Bit About Me

I'm blessed to have a beautiful sunset in my front yard! Sunsets only last a few minutes but provide the perfect opportunity to reflect and dream. I continuously challenge myself to make my dreams a reality.

 

While raising my beautiful children, I have taken every opportunity as an educator to continue learning. It's through my love of learning that I developed my love of creating.

Creating started with my Cricut but quickly evolved to every aspect of my Engineering and Design Educator career. I used many types of software to design homes, bridges, robots, and 3D prototypes. 

I managed/altered multiple LMS's, created coursework, how-to videos, exams, info-graphics, and much more.

I wanted to change careers.  LEAVE THE CLASSROOM.  Scary?  YES! 

I was planning on leaving a 15-year career. 

 

My journey began with IDOL Courses Academy.  I added Canva, ScreenCast, Camtasia, Vyond, Articulate, and Audacity to my skill set.  I successfully landed 2 contracts, started my own business, and turned in my letter of resignation.  NO REGRETS!

As an added bonus, I became an IDOL Mentor to help others pursue their dreams.

While watching a sunset, I now create full-time! Creating, as an Instructional Designer, will be a reality.

Dreams DO come true.
