Mary Ellen Van Buskirk, M.Ed.

Curriculum Vitae Expert

With 35+ years of experience as a trainer, instructional designer, and editor, I’m dedicated to creating and refining exceptional learning programs and professional documentation. I am equally at home conducting a training class, designing online instruction, and editing an RFP response. I have had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of Fortune-500 clients on projects that have ranged from conducting and designing business, sales, and technical training to creating blended learning solutions, WBTs and software simulations; from writing software user manuals to editing thousands of pages of documentation, and books. I’ve loved every minute of it, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

I earned my M.Ed. in Training Design and Development from Penn State University, graduating magna cum laude and receiving the Academic Excellence Award. I was also honored to have my research paper publishing in the Lifelong Learning in Europe professional journal.

Living at the southernmost tip if New Jersey, I spend a lot of my free time at the beach. When I’m not walking along the ocean or the Delaware Bay, I volunteer with The Wetlands Institute, participating in terrapin hatchling and horseshoe crab rescue programs. I’m also an avid gardener, mosaic artist, and children’s writer.
