You're wondering, so I'm answering. Yes... I work well with my handsome husband to your right. Now on to the meat and potatoes: as a passionate, life-longer learner, my mission is to spread this passion because, unfortunately, the love of learning is often squashed in adulthood by discouraging experiences with continuing education, especially computer-based training. As a former classroom teacher, I remember people, no matter the age, need to engage and form real connections in order to learn. Frankly, learning and development initiatives work only when they are truly enriching. In-person training can offer meaningful learning and development experiences, but it can also be expensive to facilitate. As a millennial who believes in the power of online education and as a teacher who believes in the human experience, I partner with clients ranging in size from small healthcare compliance agencies to Fortune's 50s to create blended (both in-person and digital) engagement strategies.
Bruce guides our overall strategy, including project integration and client services as well as the execution of our day-to-day business operations. Prior to starting bright iEd with his amazing wife, Bruce spent the last 10 years building experience and expertise in accounting, finance, business operations, and large-scale project management. Whether he was developing accounting and financial systems and reporting for small startups, non-profits, and healthcare providers or managing $100M business operations projects for Fortune's 100 companies, Bruce’s diverse background allows him to understand the needs, challenges, and opportunities facing all businesses, regardless of size or industry.
