Background

I’m one of those freaks who actually enjoyed high school. It’s where all my friends where. Plus, I liked figuring stuff out and learning new things. Both of my parents were teachers. Although I graduated from Illinois State University (B.S., cum laude, Sociology), I eventually got the fuck out of the cold and finished off grad school at Florida State University (M.S., Sociology). Post-grad studies at Universiteit van Amsterdam and New York University.

I geek out about science: evidence-based training, curriculum development, and data science. From speaking at Harvard (ahem, I thinks it’s pronounced Haahvard, no?) to working one-­on-­one with undergraduate students at Florida State University to evaluating mobile social and behavior change communications interventions in Malawi, I’ve worked in communications and designed workshops for a broad range of folks with differing levels of competencies in small and large settings.

Happily childfree, I get confused and break out into hives around small children. Teens, college students, executives, and other adults are my thing. Never stop learning, lovers!
