I am highly creative with over 20 years experience in graphic design – including print design, layout & production, digital media, e-Learning, web design, performance support, consulting and project management.
When it comes down to it, my "superpower" is taking a large amount of complicated information and simplifying it – often by removing extraneous text, and using visual graphics to do the real work. That way, no matter what language or education level, a person will be able to understand the meaning through visuals.
While at McDonald's, I was a member of the Learning & Development Team that won numerous industry awards including being recognized as a Learning Elite Organization, ranked #2 by Chief Learning Officer magazine. Check out just one of the many stories and recognition this team received.
At Ace Hardware, I taught myself html, which led me to redesigning AceHardware.com, where I then did the work that justified Ace to begin eCommerce, which is a large part of their revenue now.
I even wrote a book called "Make Time to Change: Your Guide to Figuring Out a New Change, Passion or Life's Purpose" to help struggling people figure out (and figure out how to make time for) a needed change or life purpose.
