design documents

I have experience creating Instructional design documents, storyboards, scripts, and course blueprints. These documents involve using learning and design theory to plan a product.


I design and develop eLearning courses with authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline and Rise from storyboards, outlines, blueprints, and other instructional design documents. I can carry a project from beginning to end. 

Learning materials

I create learning materials to enhance virtual webinars, instructor-led training, and eLearning programs. This includes job aids, slide decks, workbooks, and more.


I’m a creative and passionate instructional designer and eLearning developer. I use my knowledge of cognitive learning science and my technical and creative skills to develop corporate learning solutions. Click the button below to learn more about me!

What I Do:
I’ve always had the gift of being both analytical and creative. Both of these abilities combined creates my true superpower: creating effective and engaging learning solutions.

Learner Experience Design

I conduct a learner analysis to determine the instructional need as well as the strengths, opportunities for improvement, and motivations of my learner group. 


I’m not just guessing or throwing together what looks or sounds “good!” I follow a methodology influenced by best practices in the field. I analyze, design, develop, implement, and evaluate. Instructional design is an iterative process. One step in the process may be revisited two or three times!


Not only is my work effective – it’s engaging! I apply my love of art and design to create learning experiences. This goes beyond throwing text on a slide! I enjoy flexibility and creativity in my work. 

How I Work It:

In this section, you can read more about my methodology. I follow the ADDIE Model: Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation. This is an iterative process!

01 Analysis

Depending on the scenario, I use a variety of means to conduct a learner and needs analysis. This may include surveys, questionnaires, Subject Matter Expert (SME) Interviews, or conversations with Stake-holders. Usually, it is some combination of these methods.

02 Design

Now, I get to have fun! The design process depends on the learning solution. However, it always starts by determining the learning objectives – what do the learners need to know or do when they complete the training or utilize the materials? Then I will create an outline. If it is a job aid, I may go straight into development. For an eLearning course, I’ll create a storyboard. If there will be voiceover, I’ll write a script. The purpose of this step is to plan production.

03 development

The process of development varies based on the product. However, it involves taking the materials from the design process and creating something tangible. Whether this is an infographic or checklist, an instructional video, or a full e-learning course, I use my design documents to create deliberate learning solutions.

04 implementation

Implementation is not always done by the designer/developer. Sometimes this means handing off the products to a trainer/instructor. However, due to my experience as an instructor I am also capable of performing in this capacity. Other means of implementation include hosting a course in an LMS, emailing a job aid to all relevant employees or customers, or hosting a video in the company’s social media sphere.

05 Evaluation

During my time as a graduate student in Instructional Design, I learned and practiced a great deal in evaluation of my own work as I designed and developed. I have also learned the importance of feedback from peers. Feedback may come from other instructional designers or from SMEs and this informs the iterative process of instructional design. Additionally, I evaluate my work upon implementation. This may be knowledge checks or performance assessments that the learners complete or a survey or questionnaire administered to participants (and then analyzing this data).
