Hi. I lead strategy for digital outreach at the Center for Learning and Digital Access at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. There I research and develop services for making online museum assets accessible and useful to educators and learners, including producing experiences such as online games and interactives, managing pan-Institutional social media initiatives for teachers, and directing web platforms, including the online portal for educational resources at the Institution, SmithsonianEducation.org and the Smithsonian Learning Lab. Prior to my time at the Smithsonian, I developed citizen-science programs and online mentoring communities at the Purple Martin Conservation Association.
