Hello! I work as an instructional designer at Panera. My passion in my career involves creating classroom experiences that result in new learned behaviors that stick. I take a holistic approach to ensure students have follow-up activity with my materials long after they’ve left the classroom. But while I manage the project, I also love creating the content, and I touch just about everything from the writing to the visual elements. I’m currently creating a “journal” for participants in one class, and I’m researching virtual board game designs for another class.
