I am passionate about learning and development, regardless of title or position. I believe that you need to be responsible for your own learning, and that learning continues throughout your entire life. I'm building expertise in leadership development. I work in technology and like to believe I'm an early adopter (of most things). I've been lucky enough to work at Sun Microsystems as a learning technologist and at Oracle Corporation in leadership development. I enjoy music, ballet, bike riding, and reading. I'm a kid at heart. I love to be creative - photography, scrapbooking, card-making, sewing. I like to write. I am a cancer survivor. I garden - I harvest - I love to cook. I enjoy traveling and learning about new cultures. My family and friends mean the world to me.
