WHO WE ARE

“Our consultant encouraged us to look at our project from a different perspective. He was creative, responsive, organized, and highlighted potential decision points and issues in advance so there were no surprises. We were also very happy with the final deliverables.”

~ Lisa Weinberger, PHD

Meet those who make it all happen and find out why they love learning!

Jacob Affeldt

Learning Experience Designer

I love to learn what motivates people. What makes them want to acomplish a task, come to a job, or learn a new skill. Once I learn that I love to work closely with that person to help develop and build up those talents that they are passionate about. Helping people lean into their strengths and overcome challenges while learning is where my passion resides.

I love knitting. There is something magical about creating an object with just yarn and some pointy sticks. The possibilities are infinite with variations in yarn contents, textures, and sizes; needle sizes; and tweaks in technique. I rely on knitting

Having a career in learning reflects my multi-potentialite lifestyle. I particularly love videography because it is a fusion of so many passions. Also, with a history in theatre and improv, coming across new learning experiences I say yes, and!

It's fun and exciting learning about anything and everything. I believe knowledge plus action equals power. Once I learn something, no one can ever take it away from me. I can master new skills, develop my ability to think critically, and use my imagination. Best of all, I can explore new worlds and endless possibilities.

Project Manager | Marketing Manager

Some of my favorite things to learn involve creating more time in the day through efficiencies. Tell me about all of the ways I can save tens of seconds every day! Optimizing workflow, using hotkeys and shortcuts, automating, templatizing - I love all that stuff.

Christine Douglas

Director of Staffing | Director of HR

I love learning about people. I’ve always been a curious person, but I am especially interested in what makes people tick. My curiosity about people is rooted equally in empathy and analysis. Nothing makes me want to dig deeper, or ask more questions, than hearing about the way other people think, feel, and experience the world. I feel blessed to play a role at Fredrickson in which my curiousity about people is both useful and gratified!

Words and images working together have a powerful impact and increase engagement. Imagine learning anatomy without pictures. My goal is to create both clarity and enthusiasm by bringing visual design together with content.

Sharing knowledge is one of the greatest gifts we can give each other. Teaching and learning have the potential to build empathy, understanding, and community. I love learning from and about others around me and then paying that knowledge forward.

I love that I get a deeper understanding of myself and the whole human experience from reading autobiographies. Plus that extra layer of compassion and sensitivity that comes from learning about a challenge that someone overcame is pretty priceless.

Marisa Hubin

Learning Experience Developer

I love learning lots of different pieces of information. Sometimes I go on deep dives just because I am curious about a particular subject! I've spent time researching facts about bears, unsolved mysteries, natural disasters, famous historic families, and horse breeds, to name a few. Learning is part of being human and it's exciting to work with others to develop learning experiences that are meaningful.

Learning underlies all my hobbies, from repairing cars to home improvement. By doing whatever I can myself, I not only save money, but I get the satisfaction of learning how things work.

I've always been fascinated by people, how we are all unique, we learn differently, our experiences are different. From Strengthfinders to Meyers Briggs to the Johari window understanding others and myself is my passion.

I love to learn new languages and art techniques. I look forward to when the Saint Paul Community Education catalogue comes out every season. This fall, I am taking an art class for toddlers with my daughter..

Luke Lasecke

Learning Experience Developer | Technology Manager

I love learning about how things are made or how they work, whether it is a new product we are designing training for, or the authoring tools we use for developing the training. I especially love learning the ins and outs of those tools, so I can figure out unique ways to add interactivity or flair to our eLearning.

I'm having a blast learning from great educators for all my hobbies and interests. I can't think of a better way to grow as a learning professional than to be a student of teachers who know how to bring passion and engagement to every lesson.

As a digital scrapbooker, I constantly work on adding to and learning new skills by participating in on-line community challenges; YouTube is my friend as I build muscle memory for new techniques.

I'm a researcher at heart, and when I want to know more, I will dig as deep as I can go on that subject to satisfy my curiosity. Learning isn't just something that we do; it's at the core of who we are.

I love learning because it's something that will stick with you regardless of circumstance. Coming from a refugee background, I've witnessed firsthand how education can be a determinant of success. Loving to learn is falling in love with a process that is life-giving.

I love learning about new ways to organize things and information. I spend a lot of time looking for spreadsheet hacks and own a ridiculous number of colored Post-It notes.

I am so excited to see the advancement of visual language ignite learning and the imagination. We are seeing and comprehending the world in new intuitive ways. Learning how to learn has never been more important! If I am learning, I feel alive!

I started in the learning industry as a voice talent while I was completing my theatre degree. I love the aesthetics, engagement, creativity and interest in how humans think and behave inherent in both learning design and theatre. I also adore a great spreadsheet.

Michael Sunnarborg

Learning Experience Consultant

As a lifelong learner and a teacher at heart, I've always found myself curious about how we all learn through our experiences. So curious that I competed in the 1999 Honolulu Marathon just to experience how to train for (and finish!) such a major event.

Curiosity and empathy are at the core of each of my interactions and animate how I approach learning each day. I’m passionate about careful, thoughtful questions that help me better understand the root of a person’s motivation and ultimately engender within me a feeling of great appreciation for what I have yet to learn in this life.
