What are my qualifications?

Before I started my freelance journey, I was a professional in the education field. My passion for education stems from the joy I felt during museum visits with my mother in my early childhood. I started my education journey as a junior volunteer in a nursery, working every Saturday evening from 1994 to 2003 when I graduated from high school & moved to start my first year of college. After graduating with a BA in history & a Minor in classical civilizations, I entered my college's museum studies certificate program where my love of museums was rekindled. My acceptance into the Institute of Education's Museums & Galleries in Education Master's Program with the University of London (the Institute is now with University College London & has been ranked #1 in the world in the subject of education by the QS world rankings for 7 years running) cemented my career as an informal educator.  As time has gone on I've created STEM based science camps; co-founded large events; taught in and outside of the classroom; created curriculum for museums, nature centers, events, & camps; provided workshops; interfaced with the public; spoken at museums; trained volunteers; run visitor surveys; managed teams; trained employees in educational techniques; & assessed visitor experiences.

Professionally I've worked for a public school district, a small university museum, worked in various county & city museum education departments (both in the USA & abroad), was middle management for a city museum, managed a nature center, & was a supervisor coordinating educational activities & community centers for a city Parks & Recreation Department.

My titles have included:

  • Curator's Assistant

  • Educational Outreach Events Coordinator

  • Substitute teacher 

  • Associate Curator of Education

  • Nature Center & Community Center Coordinator

  • Parks, Recreation & Community Services Dept. Supervisor

Why talk to me?

Teaching doesn't only happen in the classroom & education doesn't stop once you graduate. Education opportunities are everywhere, & educators the world over work hard to ensure that their learners have fun, engaging, & memorable experiences.  But sometimes the lack of staffing or time can lead to the need for outside resources. 

As an education consultant I can offer you tailored products that are customized to suit the needs of both you & your learners. Store bought curriculum is wonderful & can be used to produce excellent programming, but having a product made for you creates an experience only you can provide. 

 

Currently, my clients include museums, summer camps, city departments, creative businesses, & nonprofits. I work with each of my clients to create programs, worksheets, coloring pages, lectures, workshops, or classes that fit the needs of their visitors/customers. Some of my most popular offerings include classroom management trainings for educators, consultations on how to better serve the visitor's needs, original worksheets, customized activities for any topic, & interactive mysteries that encourage exploration, active listening, & critical thinking.
