Biography

I am an educational consultant with the Centre for Educational Excellence and have been with SFU for the past 14 years. I began my work with SFU as a teaching enhancement specialist where I had the great pleasure of working with many SFU faculty, instructional staff and graduate students on voice and presentation skills. I currently co-facilitate the Certificate Program for University Teaching and Learning (CPUTL), am a facilitator for both the Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) and Re-thinking Course Design, as well as, contribute to institutional, faculty and departmental initiatives that span curriculum planning, assessment and the creation of educational media.

I hold an MFA from Indiana University and am passionate about arts-based practices in higher education which informs many collaborations here at SFU, such as those with both the Centre for Imaginative Ethnography (CIE) and SFU's Teaching and Learning Players. As a professional actor, I am an active member of the Vancouver Theatre community and find it particularly rewarding when my two worlds align.
