I was born in Mexico City, Mexico and lived there until 2003. Today, I enjoy life with my husband and our two daughters in Bowling Green, KY, USA. We love traveling, exercising, attending musical events, exploring nature, and relaxing at home. I enjoy reading, participating in conferences, and exploring new learning technologies.
I earned a degree as electronic engineer from Universidad National Autónoma de México (1994), a master degree in computer science from Tecnológico de Monterrey (1998), a second master degree in education from Western Kentucky University (2003), and a Ph.D in Organizational Development from the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisville (2009).
From 1995 to 2003, I worked for the Virtual University at Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico City Campus, when the distance education model had just started at the ITESM. Tecnológico de Monterrey is one the biggest private universities in Mexico, with more than 30 campus across the country, and the second most important university in Latin America in terms of enrolled graduate students.
For the last six years I have worked for the Office of Distance Learning at Western Kentucky University. In my role as a Senior Instructional Designer, I provide leadership to the development of online courses, orchestrating the effort of content experts from all disciplines in the university, instructional technologist, and course support personnel. I am responsible of ensuring the alignment of course learning outcomes, instructional activities/interventions, and assessments.
