As the Director of Instructor Development, I have the opportunity to find, work with, guide, and grow the industry’s best instructors, who have set the bar for performance by effectively disseminating their knowledge to learners and maintaining the highest level of feedback in the classroom. These instructors are seasoned consultants that continually exhibit exceptional expertise and an impressive ability to engage in the classroom.
How does your role help transform lives?
From teaching engineering teams how to upskill on a technology, to guiding technologists as they change roles within an organization, to mentoring individuals breaking into tech, the Instructor Development team works tirelessly to transfer their knowledge and skills. Transformation is found within each challenge in the classroom and every empathetic journey alongside a learner.
Which core value do you relate to the most, and why?
Each and every day presents new challenges and in them, opportunity is found. Run toward the snake is the DevelopIntelligence core value that resonates with me. Each student is unique and most of our classes are highly customized, so I look to have instructors jump in and work with me to craft solutions that transform engineers’ lives.
What's your favorite quote?
Choosing to step out to take a class or to leave what you know to join a months long learning program can be an overwhelming endeavor. However, the choice to learn, to change and grow, is worth it! My quote is from Tomorrowland, “There are two wolves who are always fighting. One is darkness and despair. The other is light and hope. The question is: which wolf wins? … The one you feed.” Learn with us, grow with us, be transformed!
What's one fun fact you want to share?
Every day, I am surrounded by my superhero kids… I’m hoping one day to be as awesome as them!
