Distance Learning Manager
- I care about implementing technologies that make work as easy and efficient as possible for my team, so that they can focus on providing services in the field.
- I love making my team’s work come to life through graphic design. I’m always “fixing” documents to make them more beautiful and consistent.
- I feel that the purpose of my work has always been to help others – from providing services to military spouses, to instructing teachers and students to use technology, to supporting CARS’ work in the mental health and prevention fields.
