About Me

I am very excited that you are viewing my profile. My name is Miriam and I am passionate about education and workplace wellness.

I travel the country to speak with corporate leaders about workplace wellness. I have a passio for healthy living and a talent for storytelling (and I've got some hilarious tales to tell!), so participants enjoy my conversational approach. Check out my blog at wellnessevangelista.com.

In my role at Minnesota School of Business, I specialize in preparing college faculty to embrace teaching in a technology-rich environment, which requires providing direct training opportunities related to mobile learning, experiential education, and cooperative education. I believe that every college student should have the opportunity to develop the skills that we know are essential to their experiences in the world of work.

I received a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Bay Path University (MA), a master's degree in Higher Education and Student Personnel Administration from Kent State University, and have earned credits toward a Doctor of Educational Leadership at University of Phoenix.

One of the most rewarding positions I have held was at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, where I had the opportunity to establish a Technology and Information Literacy Community Learning Center. The Center provided tutoring services to K-12 students in the Cleveland Municipal School District and adults who wanted to pursue their GED. This position marked the first time that I truly felt I was doing something important, not only for my career, but for the socioeconomic advancement of an entire community. It was truly an amazing experience.

In my free time, I practice yoga, Qigong, and mixed martial arts. I am support charitable organizations such as Make-a-Wish and Habitat for Humanity, and participate in local and regional activities in Minneapolis-St. Paul that support childhood literacy. I am also an educational consultant for Usborne Books & More, a publisher of children's books. Few things are as important as cultivating the development of a child's reading habits.
