  • Cindy Etherton

    As an instructional designer and change agent, Cindy's interests range from technology to entrepreneurship. 

    Cindy has always been inspired by the idea of “What if…”. It has continued to motivate her throughout her years as an educator of both children and adults helping her to push the boundaries of possibilities. 

    Collaboration and empowerment are two key strengths that Cindy possesses. She actively engages with those that she supports enabling them to gain skill and agency while allying with them. Cindy meets people where they are to help them develop their technical, communication, or learning goals. She is passionate about providing the best collaborative support to those around her as they envision their own “what if…” projects. You can find Cindy exploring her next “what if’s” with the help of her colleagues both on and offline.
