How long have you been a consultant?

 I have been working in online education for the last 7 years, I decided to become an official consultant in July, 2017.

How did you start?

 After an amazing talk with my mentor and former teacher, Dr. Brandi Maynard- I discovered that my passion and energy fits a very specific niche- engaging online high school students. She helped me to realize my passion and run with it! 

Why did you decide to become a consultant?

 Seeing students and teachers feel isolated in the online environment broke my heart. I wanted to figure out ways to build a sense of community and school spirit online in order to make a lasting impact and true school experience. 

How would you describe your consulting practice?

 My consulting practice is always strength based. There is no such thing as a one size fits all approach when we are working with such diverse populations, so I make sure to tailor research based methods to specific scenarios. 

What do you do for clients?

I help educators generate an exciting and positive school culture using free and easy to access online tools in order to build strong virtual school communities. I also provide professional development for staff that can be delivered virtually or in person. 

Why do you like to do consulting?

Knowing that a student graduated and persevered due to a positive school climate is what gets me out of bed in the morning!
