I’ve been at this whole interactive / graphic design shabang for close to a decade. I started out doing mostly print design of which 3 of my very first professional projects were published in Rockport Publisher’s “Best of Brochure Design 8 and 9“. Out of necessity I started doing interactive work early on in my career, quickly fell in love and have been happily married since.
Being a musician for the better part of my adult life, I acquired experience and knowledge that eventually led to artist management. As a manager I was able to not only connect with amazing artists, but also bring my design passion to meet their needs. The overall experience was a tremendous exercise of networking and custom projects, while acquiring a vast knowledge of time management. Ultimately, the effort ended up overweighing the payoff and moved on to work more suitable to my current needs.
While working in the music business, it became painfully obvious to me that keeping an artist’s website up-to-date was a nightmare, even with the available technologies. I took matters in my own hands and with the help of my good friend Jeremiah Talamantes, we architected, designed and developed a band website platform called eBandLive.
Interaction design is not simply my job, its my passion. I love and embrace every single piece of the puzzle, from information architecture to application design to user interface design to application architecture and design, I can and highly enjoy doing it all.
In addition to interactive work, I quite enjoy playing bass in Standard Thompson and hanging out with my 7-year-old son.
For the past 20 years, I have been engaged as an educational researcher, evaluator and professor of educational policy. Areas of expertise include education reform, policy implementation and effectiveness, post-secondary attainment and socio-economic disadvantage. My publications address the social institutions and policies designed to promote educational advancement for students, especially the socially disadvantaged. Teaching and research associations over the past 20 years include the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign, University of Minnesota and Stanford University. I hold a Ph. D. and M.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a B.A. from Lawrence University.
I am a digital business analyst here at Sophia. I have a B.S. in Computer Science from Mankato State University. I am also the mother of 3 teenagers, all with very different learning styles. Therefore, when I am not working on Sophia, I am helping with homework, studying for tests and supplying all the materials necessary for countless projects. Working with my children has given me a new appreciation for how many different ways there are to learn things. It has become very clear to me that what works for one child does not always work for another. I am inspired by the potential of Sophia to teach people in a way that makes sense to them, as well as provide a platform for people to share their knowledge.
