Hi, I’m Amanda Allen, the Chief Igniter at Ignite Learning. I am a passionate instructional designer with a decade of experience developing education solutions. I have worked in multiple industries including healthcare, financial services, food services, and K-12 education. I am skilled at making complex, technical content palatable for the not-so-technical learner. I enjoy bringing black-and-white text to life through engaging, interactive e-Learning as well as mentoring new designers.
I obtained a Master’s of Science in Instructional Systems and Performance Improvement from the top program in the country at Florida State University. However, I believe lifelong learning is important. I enjoy continuing to learn about new trends in instructional design, new software, and graphic design as I move through my career. There’s always something new to learn! I am fascinated by what can be done with technology and how the learning and development industry has changed over time.
Ignite Learning was sparked by a desire to share my enthusiasm for learning with others. I aim to help organizations develop learning solutions that spark the same desire for learning that I have.
On a personal note: I am the wife of a firefighter and a mother to a smart and silly son. We enjoy living every day life in Florida, having fun in the sun (and rain). I volunteer for a local animal rescue, have 3 rescued pets, and I am an active volunteer with our public school system.
I encourage you to look around my site and contact me when you’re ready to ignite learning in your organization.
