This is how it all started…

Back in 2001, my journey began with a proposal for a simple web-enhanced program. This project wasn’t just a professional assignment; it was the catalyst for embracing my Inner Geek Lizzy and my profound interest in digital solutions focused on human-centered learning and development. I was captivated by the potential to transform user experiences through thoughtful design and strategic implementation.

Over the years, my dedication to quality and an unwavering focus on the product and course experience led me naturally into roles where I could make significant impacts. It was through this persistent commitment that I gradually stepped into the position of a fractional Chief Learning Officer and became known as “The Course Doctor.” This title wasn’t just given; it was earned through relentless pursuit of excellence in digital product development.

My work spans various industries, including collaborations with tech startups, professional associations, corporate settings, and prestigious institutions like MIT, RIT, and Southern New Hampshire University. These experiences have enriched my approach, allowing me to blend complex learning theories with practical, human-centered design strategies to create effective and engaging learning experiences.

The essence of my work involves applying journey mapping, learning design, and insights from brain science to ensure that digital products deliver tangible results without causing user overwhelm, frustration, or confusion. This focus on creating structured yet adaptable learning environments has been a cornerstone of my career, ensuring that each project not only meets but exceeds the expectations of clients and customers alike.

The evolution into “The Course Doctor” was a natural extension of my passion for enhancing digital learning environments. By concentrating on the human aspects of learning and meticulously architecting digital product suites, I help our clients and customers develop offerings that are informative and transformative. This commitment has fueled my passion for developing digital products that significantly improve customer lives.
