How did you get into L&D?
Learning has been a lifelong passion for me and I wanted to be that pillar of knowledge and support that had been provided to me. Prior to joining the Learning field I was creating materials for my team, growing my skills, mentoring others, creating job aids, and finding ways to grow the skills of others. When the position opened up in Learning and Development, the job description matched everything I was already doing, and it turned out to be the best fit for me!
What trends in L&D are you most excited about?
I might be a little bias, but I am most excited to learn about how other teams are using the Agile methodology in the learning space. Additionally I am interested in adult learning theory and virtual reality.
What is one fun fact about you?
I jumped of the world’s first commercial bungy jump! The Kawarau Bridge Bungy in Queenstown, New Zealand.
What inspired you to apply to 30 Under 30?
It is not always celebrated to be young in the corporate world, and we can be seen as green or inexperienced. The 30 Under 30 program is unique in that it supports the idea that it is not the number of years in the field, but the drive and willingness to be the best Learning Professionals possible, no matter your tenure.
