As a seasoned, progressive Learning Experience Designer (LXD) and eLearning Developer, my work centers on designing and developing learning experiences that are learner-focused while emphasizing the need to meet business goals.
I began my career in Learning and Development, first in the financial services industry and later making my way into the business travel sector.
When tasked with the challenge to develop an entire course curriculum or redesign an existing course, I immediately go into analysis mode. This is the thing that gets my wheels spinning. You see, by nature I am analytical. A life-long learner who is constantly on the prowl to learn something new and different. Learning is my catalyst to designing well-thought out learner experiences.

“Andrea is a creative team member who coaches and mentors others on the Instructional Design & Development team. Over the past year, I’ve seen Andrea grow her leadership skills. Last year, I gave her the challenge of leading team initiatives and taking action to help us close the gap between "the way things are currently," and "the way things should be." Andrea embraced this challenge. She continuously accepts complex (and often ambiguous) projects, she volunteers to lead or participate in projects to develop her skills and shows initiative by recommending changes to our team processes and development standards.”
