Adaptive Technology Specialist

My University of Minnesota career began in October 1998, when I was hired to head the Computer Accommodations Program (CAP). In addition to providing training, consulting, and support to University of Minnesota students and employees, I have trained over 300 State of Minnesota Web developers and numerous clients from entities such as Unisys, Walden University, Capella University, Bethel University, US Bank, Federal Department of wildlife, Hennepin County, and others.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Cognitive Psychology from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1987. I developed Carnegie-Mellon University's first disability services program and served as its director for a year and a half, while pursuing my studies at the institution. In 1995, I received my Master of Science degree in Experimental Psychology: Human Cognition, Memory and Learning from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.
