Alelo welcomes two additions to our new reskilling product team. Both team members will help roll out reskilling solutions to the corporate market, specifically our new Community Health Worker training course and placement program to healthcare providers and employers.
Katie Robinson, Community Health Worker Instructor
Katie leads the class instruction for our new Community Health Worker course. Trainees in the course role-play online with artificially intelligent avatars in realistic workplace scenarios to learn vital on-the-job skills. The AI-driven simulations deliver personalized exercises in only areas of improvement. Katie hosts weekly webinars introducing each topic to be practiced with an avatar. She then monitors role-playing performance through a dashboard to identify trainees who may be struggling. This makes it possible for Katie to support a large number of trainees, focusing on only those who need help. After the avatar-led course, Katie will validate that trainees have mastered competencies and are ready for the field.
Katie has been board certified in hospice and palliative nursing since 2011. She obtained a Master of Science in Nursing with a focus in executive nurse leadership in 2018, followed by a Ph.D. in Nursing with a research specialty in palliative and end of life care in 2020. Katie began teaching at San Diego City College in 2018 and is currently an Assistant Professor and Community Health Course Lead at California State University, San Marcos. Katie takes pride in building a career outside the four walls of a hospital, meeting clients and families wherever they call home.
