Training and Development


Throughout my career and as a community volunteer, I have created and presented dozens of seminars, training sessions and for-credit college courses.  I can deliver established training modules, design customized training based on your parameters or create something completely new and effective for your team.  Give me a call and let’s talk about what would work for you!

Paid and Volunteer Staff Training

I have planned, coordinated and implemented single session, day-long and multi-day training sessions for both paid and volunteer staff, including Residence Life staff and volunteer mentors and leaders.  I have extensive experience designing training based on learning outcomes as well as writing staff/volunteer manuals.
