Our Vision


We utilize the power of professional networks to create a framework for matching people with the right opportunities. For instructional design projects, IT services, specialized consulting and to provide or supplement faculty support services within institutions, ATTECS forms and provides remote teams with the pre-screened sets of skills. And, for professional development, we index, map, promote and facilitate sessions by experienced and established faculty/professional developers.


At ATTECS, we transform educational visions into reality. 

With a dedicated focus on adult learners and the evolving landscape of continuing and professional education, our firm stands at the forefront of instructional design and educational program development. 

We partner with a diverse array of organizations, including colleges, universities, small businesses, non-profits, and more, to deliver tailored solutions that drive success.

“I want to bring together what I see as one of the most important resources – People. I want to create an environment that is collaborative, rich with expertise and utterly unique.”

Having worked in higher education for most of my career, I have found that collaborative institutional cultures made my work environment a lot more enjoyable than those with siloed missions and autocratic administrative decisions. I was also inspired by the many professional forums in the teaching and learning space. Even when part of a siloed workplace, I was never alone—there was always a vast network of colleagues all over the world, ready to offer answers, and share ideas and resources.

Over the years, as I used multiple listservs, discussion boards, and social media forums, I noticed a few interesting themes…

Higher education institutions were frequently looking for help to supplement existing services on a temporary or part-time basis, perhaps due to a project or an institutional initiative. At the same time, colleagues who were retiring or needed a more flexible work schedule were reporting having a hard time locating such opportunities at the right time.

So, in 2019, I left my full-time job as an instructional designer at a globally recognized prestigious university—a job that came with more than livable wages, healthcare benefits, a retirement account, and heavily discounted future tuition for my children, to start my own company—ATTECS, an independent center for teaching and learning.

Although the core services of ATTECS – educational technology consulting, instructional design, support, and professional development, are primarily aligned with my professional experience, the underlying mission is to create a framework for matching the right people with the right projects at the right time.
