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.
