Anita Horsley, M.Ed.
Founder CALEX Learning Consultants, LLC
On of the last things my father said to me before he died, in 2012 was “if you are passionate about what you do, you will succeed at anything.” I am passionate about all forms of teaching and education. I have been teaching instructor‑led and train‑the‑trainer courses since 1998.
As a firefighter, I was a State and National level Instructor III and as a personal trainer, I have received multiple train‑the‑trainer fitness certifications. I initiated, from inception to implementation, educational programs including the Health, Wellness, and Safety for DeKalb Fire Services and was the Firefighter Combat Challenge World Champion See YouTube video here
At the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal, I founded the eLearning Track and was the Manager for the Learning Management System. I have been designing and developing online courses for adult learners since 2009.
I have been developing online learning programs since 2009. In Jan. 2012, I passed the Adobe Certified Expert exam in Adobe Captivate have been teaching Adobe Captivate and Storyline both online and instructor‑led, nationally and internationally.

I develop online learning programs using Adobe Captivate and Storyline.

History of Calex
I arrived with the name CALEX named after my mother (CAL) and father (ALEX), both educators. They both loved teaching. I lost them both to cancer at relatively early ages. To name my business after them is my way of honoring and paying tribute to my, very much missed, parents.
I love to teach and one way of teaching is to develop online courses which are engaging and interactive; thus, in order to successfully implement eLearning courses for my clients I am not only proficient at advanced actions with Captivate but I am also proficient at a variety of multimedia authoring tools such as Storyline, Audition, Photoshop, Premier Pro, After Effects and Adobe Reader.
