About Me


My name is Kerstin Howard and I am a 31 year old Instructional Systems Specialist. I have a achieved a Bachelor’s degree in Technical Education from the University of Akron that I received in 2003 along with a minor in Computer Information Systems that achieved in 2002. I also achieved my graduate degree in Distance Education (MDE program) from the University of Maryland, University College in August of 2009.  While pursuing this degree I achieved three graduate certificates in the following:  Distance Education Leadership, Foundations of Distance Education, and Distance Education and Technology. These certificates have made me a well-rounded practitioner of education at a distance and helps me realize what makes distance education so rewarding and effective. I currently work as an Instructional Systems Specialist, performing training analysis and design work on government and military products. My current works included writing process documents, learner analysis, job task analysis, needs analysis, and storyboard and narrative development. My work has also extended to writing technical training manuals. Many of my specific projects that I have completed during my work experience have focused towards software usage of the military medical community and equipment operation in military field services. These projects have helped me demonstrate my committed skill of placing myself in a focused environment in order to develop a more thorough and dynamic product.


I am a wife to my husband Adam, mother to my daughters Kayla and Alyssa, and dog Roo. We currently reside in Southern Maryland. We are a very athletic family. Our sports of interest are football, softball, and basketball. I was a student-athlete at the University of Akron from 1998 – 2002 and a member of the Little League World Champion softball team, District 7 in 1998.
