As the marketing and partnership development lead at Ohlinger Studios, I am focused on ensuring that our partners are able to deliver the very best learning experiences to their customers.  Our partners span from the largest education content providers to corporate entities…and from non-profit community-based organizations to learning institutions of all types.

I’ve been passionate about education and training since day one of my career.  I’ve been a sales rep, a marketing manager, an editor, an executive editor, an editor-in-chief, a publisher, and a consultant. Helping learners achieve their goals has always been very rewarding to me. I have been always been especially committed to helping underserved/underrepresented populations to achieve their dreams. Throughout my career as I served in a variety of editorial, marketing and executive management roles, I made it a point to keep learners from around the world top of mind as we pursued our operating goals.

I’ve had the good fortune to develop win-win partnerships with innumerable forward thinking organizations such as Le Cordon Bleu, EC-Council, Food Marketing Institute, Home Builder’s Institute, Independent Electrical Contractors, American Association of Community Colleges, and Jobs for the Future, among others.

Originally from the Lone Star State, I currently live in upstate New York where from time-to time I have to hone my snow-blowing and shoveling skills.  However, when weather permits, you can find me on a golf course chasing a little white ball around.
