Erendira is a skilled and patient course designer, who facilitated the development of an online organizational behavior course.

The first day I started working at DIRECTV in my role as Sales Center Training Manager, I was informed that I would have to learn InDesign. Due to InDesign being considered the most daunting of programs in my previous organization, I immediately felt intimidated by this prospect. While it did take some self-education, there is no way I could have been successful in my initial design projects without Erendira’s patient coaching and the templates she had built from scratch to support the Team. Through her own diligence and self-discipline, Erendira taught herself InDesign and became the guru to support the other Managers and me. Since design is a majority of our work, I will always be indebted to Erendira for the foundation she provided me and her patient mentoring. Not only is Erendira an expert in design, but she is also a consummate professional and team player. She would be an asset to any team.Jennifer Murrian - DIRECTV
