Colleen Fleming moved to Buena Park last year and has since become involved in Buena Park Neighbors activities including the Block Captain program and Buena Park Young Professionals. A lifelong Chicago-area resident (aside from a few years in California and Ireland), Colleen was happy to find a condo in a neighborhood that has a strong sense of community.
Colleen currently works as an instructional design manager at the American College of Surgeons, where she oversees the development of educational content for surgical quality improvement programs. Prior to this, she was an instructional designer at Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she collaborated with faculty to create business courses for MBA and executive education students.
Colleen has a bachelor’s degree in Rhetoric from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) and a master’s degree in Popular Literature from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. She enjoys art and completed a bookbinding certificate program at the San Francisco Center for the Book. Last year, Colleen earned a graduate certificate from the University of Illinois in Information Accessibility Design and Policy, which allows her to ensure that online educational courses and websites are developed to meet the needs of people with disabilities.
In addition to her involvement with Buena Park Neighbors Colleen is a member of the Young Leadership Committee for JDRF. JDRF is a global non-profit that funds Type 1 diabetes research in the hopes of finding a cure for the autoimmune disease. Her work on the committee includes graphic design, marketing, event support, and fundraising. Colleen is also serving as an election judge in Buena Park on November 6th and hopes to see you on election day if you haven’t voted yet!
