Educational Background

The summary is that each of our lives are constantly evolving which means our communication can constantly improve. My philosophy is…  Let’s investigate so we can go in the right direction. And then…  Let’s look back and measure a bit so we can celebrate the hell out of our wins, big and small.

University Classes:
  • Social Psychology
  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Personality Psychology
  • Research Methods in Sociology
  • Public Speaking
  • Interpersonal Communication
  • Environmental Policy (debate)
  • Women’s Studies Research/Practicum
  • Library Research
  • Graphic Design
  • Computer Graphics (Adobe CS)
  • Art History
  • Drawing
  • Tons of photography and lighting classes!
  • Software Project Management
  • Economics and other business courses
  • *many* Statistics classes – in anthropology, math, philosophy, engineering, geography
  • etc.
And for a lifelong learner like me, there’s always less formal education like:
  • Agile Coaching workshop (Eliassen)
  • Tons of marketing seminars (UCLA, etc.)
  • Programming/Dev and Data Science meetups, workshops, and conferences
  • Agile methodologies meetups, workshops, and conferences
  • Creating my own direct mail marketing campaigns and seeing ROI
  • Iterating on product order forms and seeing thousands of people use them
And volunteer experience like:
  • UX mentoring for Go Code Colorado
  • Usability research reviews for friends and co-workers
  • Research Assistant in the University of Colorado Boulder Social Psychology JEDI Lab (Judgement, Emotion, Decision, Intuition Lab)
  • Editing and rewriting lots of copy/content (websites, science proposals, advertising, love letters, angry emails)
  • Listening (and genuinely helping) friends, acquaintances, and Meetup attendees.
