Hi, I’m Chelsea Humphrey! I’m an instructional designer, developer, trainer, and training project manager keeping busy full-time in the fast-paced pharmaceutical industry. I’m also currently a UMass Boston graduate-level student with a passion for exercising my brain and my body. As you can imagine, when I sleep, I sleep hard!
I landed in the world of corporate training by accident. After studying biological anthropology in college, I wasn’t sure what to do next. Luckily, my science-y background helped land me a job at an academic research organization in Boston, where I learned about clinical research management and Boston’s expansive pharmaceutical industry. I caught the training bug while helping the organization implement new software, and I haven’t looked back since!
In corporate training, with a strong emphasis on process and technology training, I can be analytical and creative; I get to solve problems and manage deadlines; I get to communicate with my colleagues and help them do their work. Best of all, I get to dabble! With each training project, I find myself learning more and more about the pharmaceutical industry as well as my craft.
Lunges and Learning is where I share my thoughts on all things learning, instructional design, and corporate training. Of course, I love when I can balance a hard day of mental labor with physical movement. So, this is also where I reflect on the similarities and differences of how our bodies and brains can learn and grow with a little applied force
This is an ever-evolving journey, and one I hope you’ll walk with me – or even sprint along – from time to time!
