I help educators utilize technology to enhance learning experiences.
K–12 Education and Technology Trainer, Speaker, Author
I have spent my career in various roles in the education field, including classroom teacher, curriculum writer, technology integration specialist, and professional development manager. During my time as a classroom teacher, I taught in a one-to-one environment—my classroom was a computer lab!
Through this experience, it became clear to me that technology, if leveraged correctly, can help to create powerful learning experiences. However, the path to powerful learning is not always clear. This is why I started InTECHgrated Professional Development. I wanted to help K–12 schools and teachers on this path.
As someone who loves to learn, I spend a lot of my spare time pondering how to make learning better. I found my strength and passion helping educators utilize technology to enhance learning experiences.

A Little about Me
I live with my husband and our pack of squishy-faced dogs in Bozeman, Montana, USA, where we enjoy exploring the beauty of Montana. We have a small camper that we enjoy taking out in the summer. In the winter, we enjoy a ski trip every now and then. Lately, we have spent every spare minute remodeling our house.
