My name is Lucy Pagan and I am a Senior Instructional Designer and Digital Creative. I hold a Masters in Instructional Design and Technology from Full Sail University, as well as a Bachelor's in Management from Mercy College.
I began freelancing while working a traditional brick and mortar role several years back. Eventually, I made the transition to go fully remote and I have not looked back since.
More productivity. I find I am much more productive and creative working remotely. Additionally, I no longer feel torn between my home life and my work life. Also, being able to connect globally provides more opportunities for professional success.
Some people may feel disconnected from the world at large and they prefer the in person connection. However, for me personally, I never feel isolated. I am consistent in communication with my team and network.
The US and a few Caribbean islands.
Home office, shaded outdoor seating.
It can be challenging to manage meetings where everyone is in a different time zone. Flexibility is key.
I like to keep it simple. I use google calendar, slack, and my notepad.
Do not get caught up in thinking you need a "perfect space" to work. A good computer, headphones, and internet are all you need to get started. You will find what works best for your needs over time.
