Erin combines her formal education in information technology and education with an emphasis in instructional design and technology (B.I.T., M.Ed.), with her technical expertise, real-world experience and understanding of adult learning to present these technical topics in an easy-to-understand, easy-to-apply and fun manner using relatable examples and analogies.
