Instructor

Kristi Baldwin, BSIT, PMP, RYT, AHPP

Instructor

Kristi is an educator-extraordinaire, having honed her project management teaching chops at the likes of Penn State, the University of Delaware, and Delaware County Community College. And this on top of her 30-year career tenure in the project-rich landscape of information technology. Kristi earned her PMP certification in 2008 and, over the course of her career, has helmed projects in healthcare, finance, IT, manufacturing, construction, government, clinical and telecommunications. Her experience running projects, establishing project management offices, and working across industries and methodologies (Predictive, Agile and Hybrid), informs and enriches student learning experiences.

Although Kristi now calls Big-Sky country home, her virtual-instruction wherewithal and natural charisma make her a favorite among students in our virtual learning environment. If you’re lucky, you might spot—in the background—one or more of her 3 dogs, 8 cats, a horse and/or goat during a designated break from learning. Call it a bonus.

To top it off, he boasts expertise and experience in networking technologies, business analysis, consulting and education.

Since 2004, Scott’s career has followed a noble path—that of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Overseeing a team of project managers, he has managed multiple programs and projects for interdisciplinary (IT, clinical, facilities, operations) teams in support of hospital initiatives.
