Meet Co-Head Honcho
Andrea Dottling, M.Ed.

Parker is an instructional designer, eLearning developer, cartoonist, and learning consultant in the L&D community. He's also the brainchild and co-founder of IDLance. He
worked for a Fortune 50 company for over 21 years as an engineer, trainer, instructional designer, and training manager before starting his own consulting biz in 2008. He earned his M.S. in Educational Technology and a Ph.D. in Adult Learning with a specialization in mental models and concept mapping. Stuff he digs: drawing (duh), running on the trails, traveling, golfing, spending time with family and friends (including 4 teenage kids who constantly eat him out of house and home) - please subscribe to IDLance so you can pay for their Dorito habits.

Andrea is a writer, instructional designer, technologist, consultant, drummer, artist, and reformed stand-up comedian. Obsessed with/working in instructional design since 2015, she's the co-head honcho of IDLance with Parker. Parker gave Andrea her first freelance instructional design gig (ever!). BA from NYU in History, Education & Dramatic Lit (lolz), MA in Media Studies from The New School, and M.Ed. in Learning & Tech from Western Governors University. Stuff she digs: Lifetime movies, drawing, Second Line music, momming, Indian take-out leftovers, and sparkling wine. Please join IDLance so she can someday open her own waterpark called The Bayou. 
All IDLance members will receive a hefty discount.
