Engage. Educate. Implement.
Mission Statement: Devoted to implementing a technology guided training experience to assist with the development and delivery of content in a most engaging and educational fashion.
Vision Statement: To make a 21st century impact upon learning environments and ultimately affect student achievement through the inclusion of technology resources and tools.
Digital Boardwalk Consulting was founded on education and instructional principles integrated with 21st century technologies. After experience in classrooms around the world with increasing pieces of technology, yet limited training available, I became impassioned with helping others to use the hardware and software effectively to improve instruction. Basic functional skills are obviously vital for success, but real world application is required for true implementation. After struggling in a K-12 technology company to get my message heard, this organization was born from a culmination of circumstances.
Professionally, I’ve been in involved in varied levels of education and classroom instruction, for children and adults, for over 15 years. Once I transitioned into a technology classroom, I never returned to a traditional learning environment. I fell in love with the wonders of what these tools can do for learning! My career began with a bachelor’s in Elementary Education and a specialization in Gifted Education, and within a few short years evolved toward technology. Following teaching assignments in the DoD schools overseas and a private school in Belgium, I found myself managing an online training program for K-12 educators for a leading interactive whiteboard manufacturer while studying and applying project management and instructional design skills.
Personally, I’m a USAF active duty military spouse and am honored to serve our country alongside my dear husband, Brett. We’ve lived in four countries, and five different states with our two most amazing kids, who are now both in college. How great that as they embark on their independent journeys, I too can begin anew and effect to make a mark on learning everywhere!
