Manda Gibson

Instructional Designer
From coaching high school athletes to collaborating with my peers at Simpson, I’m motivated by the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of everyone I meet. Please reach out if you have any questions, thoughts, or innovative ideas; I’d love to help if I can!



My name is Manda Gibson, and I am Simpson College’s Instructional Designer. I work with online faculty to develop high-quality online courses and provide academic software guidance and support for Simpson’s face-to-face faculty. One aspect of my job that I enjoy the most is the opportunity to work with students, staff, and faculty across campus to create cost-effective, efficient options for current processes and brainstorm new innovative opportunities using Simpson’s technology platforms.

Before moving into Simpson’s Instructional Design role, I had the opportunity to be the Operations Manager (2 years) and Media Services Coordinator (2 years) in Simpson’s Information Technology Department. Combining my Simpson knowledge with my education and previous experiences, I have a unique opportunity to bring different perspectives to every meeting.
