About Jessica

My Work... I am a learning, web, and graphic designer, as well as an educator, researcher, and lifelong learner. I have experience in corporate and educational industries, including K-12 and higher education as an adjunct instructor. My corporate experience includes working as a Learning Design and Developer in NYC, where I designed and developed eLearning and mLearning courses, instructor-led training, videos, infographics, and performance support tools. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Instructional Technology at Bloomsburg University. I graduated from Pennsylvania State University (PSU) with a Doctorate in Philosophy in Learning, Design and Technology, and Master of Education in Instructional Systems. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Communication, Management, and Design from Ithaca College.

My Educational Values... I promote a learning environment that fosters collaboration, innovation, and lifelong learning. I have taught classes both synchronously and asynchronously for various universities. I ensure that my students have the technical knowledge and skills to be capable and confident in creating solutions to design problems. I believe in continuous professional development and am always looking for ways to stay current in this ever-evolving digital age. I follow and assimilate new trends and technological innovations in graphic communications into my teaching. 

My Philosophy... I maintain the balance between functionality and visual impact in everything I do. My work embodies educationally sound and visually appealing designs with innovative interfaces. I love learning and am grateful for the opportunities I have been offered. I strive to use all my educational and professional experiences to design, conduct research and teach individuals how to reach their full potential.

My Life... When I am not pushing pixels around, I embrace tackling new obstacles and exploring new territories. I am originally from Westchester, NY, but currently reside in Lewisburg, PA. My love of design and art has led me on travels to Prague, Amsterdam, Vienna, and Munich. I am an avid runner and have run the NYC marathon, five half marathons, the Iron Girl Sandy Hook sprint triathlon, and a Tough Mudder obstacle race. I am always looking for new challenges, personally and professionally.
