Greetings! I am Michelann Quimby, and I am an award-winning university instructor, curriculum designer, cyberpsychology researcher, and consultant.
I hold a PhD in Human Development from Fielding Graduate University and a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership and Ethics from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. I also hold a Master’s degree in Music Performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
I have expertise in Trauma Informed Practice, which I practice and teach to other learners and instructors. I am invested in diversity and inclusion and how it affects organizations and employees, and in helping organizations understand how DEI can strengthen ethics, creativity, and competitiveness.
I have academic publications in the area of trauma informed practice, organizational leadership and ethics, and online behavior, as well as industry organizational development publications. I speak publicly in my community on the topics of trauma informed practice, internet ethics and safety, leadership and ethics, and employee engagement. I also consult on these topics.
I have been a college instructor since 2011. My learners are a highly diverse population, ranging widely in age, cultural background, economic background, career, and previous education. I engage with learners at all levels, whether they need basic academic writing and critical reading skills, or are advanced writers and thinkers in need of greater challenges. My teaching style is influenced by Critical Pedagogy, Trauma Informed Pedagogy, and Transformative Learning principals. I am a lifelong learner and love creating and distributing knowlege in face to face, online, blended, and asynchronous formats.
