Hi, I’m Shawntay Skjoldager, a Trainologist who transitioned from a burned out and broke teacher to instructional designer and cofounder of the instructional design company.
I help new grads, career changers, and teachers transition into instructional design JUST LIKE I DID through education and 1-1 coaching.
In my role as Chief Trainologist at the Instructional Design Company, I work with companies of all sizes to develop custom eLearning solutions using solid instructional design practices and project management skills. I also help develop trainings teams of companies throughout the US with instructor-led workshops and coaching.
I hold a Master of Science degree in Training & Development and I have worked in Fortune 500 companies leading the training function. My experience encompasses many industries and I have held just about every role on a Training Team that you can hold.
I am also a mom of two beautiful children. One is all grown up and married and the other has just started kindergarten. I am married to a Dane who migrated to the US when we were married. We both work remotely, which is a huge blessing. I love my life and I love my work! I am blessed to work in instructional design and hope to share this blessing with many others.
