Social Intelligence Business Leader. Social Media Professor

Adjunct Faculty, Business & Marketing, UC Berkeley & UC Santa Cruz

At UC Berkeley, I’m responsible for the development of the Social Media Marketing Strategies course, a mandatory course to earn the Professional Marketing Certificate in Business. I design and facilitate in-depth blended learning approaches through thoughtful integration of online and face-to-face environments including group assignments, peer reviews, individual projects, online discussions, quizzes, and research.

At UC Santa Cruz, I'm the owner and curriculum developer of the Social Media Marketing Professional Award, a 6 to 9 months Certification Program. The Social Media Award consists of 3 core Social Media Courses - Social Media Marketing Fundamentals, Advanced Social Media Marketing and Application of Social Media for Business Growth. My work involves communicating regularly with stakeholders, propose recommendations and innovative learning solutions to solve organization needs, advocate for the learner experience and develop program updates accordingly. I serve as a subject matter expert, incorporate adult learning principles resulting in personalized and relevant content, knowledge retention and applied skills.
