Member Spotlight

Every month the Metro DC ATD chapter turns the spotlight on members who are making an impact in their professional field and ATD. These members exemplify the mission of ATD. If you would like to nominate a member for the spotlight, please contact the VP of Membership at vp_membership@dcatd.org.

 

Robert Jordan

September 2017 

 

Robert completed the Metro DC ATD mentoring program in 2015 and has been working with the ISD CoP since 2016. Robert became a volunteer with the chapter because of his desire to become involved with like-minded professionals in the instructional design field and provide an environment for joint learning and exploration. Robert enjoys the shared learning and knowledge building the most as a chapter volunteer. “The CoPs provide an ideal learning opportunity for learning professionals who may work in isolation tocome together and share their challenges and get assistance from other professionals in the field,” he says.

 

Izabela Solosi

September 2017 

 

Like Robert, Izabela completed the Metro DC ATD mentoring program in 2015 and has been working with the ISD CoP since 2016.  Izabela refers to herself as an accidental practitioner. Her chapter membership began out of a desire for continued growth and learning in instructional design and training.  “My experience has been invaluable and I don’t think I would have made it as far as I did in this field without it,” she says. Her involvement with the mentoring program guided her graduate program studies in Instructional Design. Izabela most loves volunteering because of the wonderful professionals that she has met and learned from; she refers to them as her “tribe.”  


 

Natasha Roberts

September 2017

 


Natasha also completed the Metro DC ATD mentoring program in 2015 and has been working with the ISD CoP since 2016 and serving as the Director of Marketing on the board since January 2017. Natasha became a chapter volunteer to continue growing in the field and to be connected to amazing professionals who could assist in her professional growth and development. “I wanted to give back to the community that gave to me!” she says. Natasha loves being a chapter volunteer because of the people and connections and that she can bring benefit to other talent development professionals. She says, “The opportunity to create a community where one did not exist was exciting because we learn so much from one another.”
