I have about 10 years of experiences within the higher education setting as an Educational Technology Consultant at the Faculty Technology Center at Louisiana State University. In my role I assist faculty with the seamless integration of technology into their teaching and research. Through my consulting activities I provide support in the identification and application of technologies that foster innovative instructional approaches. I am also a doctoral student in the Ph.D. program in Educational Leadership and Research at Louisiana State University. My research interests focus on the topics of teaching and learning, distance education, faculty development, international education, innovation, and technology.
