What is Princess up to…?

I love meeting new people and making matches, professionally and personally (I’m 3-0!). In other words, I’m into solutions.

I love focusing on the future and imagining what could be and how it could be. I’m into solid processes.

Check out the instructional tools and solutions I’ve been working on!

  • ID Process: Storyboarding
    No shade to OSU’s Instructional Design Certification intended, but I think they missed out by not including how to properly storyboard e-learning. Screenshot of storyboarding slide in Google Slides, containing a table and images of “unhealthy” habits, and special instructions to the video development team, with the script for the scene Back when I was …

So that was exciting. The …
