Assistant Professor, Communication Studies
I always knew that I wanted to be an educator. I took my first communication studies class, interpersonal communication, and what I learned ignited a fire in my head and heart. I knew that I found exactly what I was meant to do with my life! I love what I do. My passion is apparent inside and outside of the classroom in my interactions with students. Together, we create a supportive classroom environment where students are welcomed, engaged, respected…and know they belong. In the classroom, I believe in compassion and rigor. I set high expectations for students, believe they can achieve them, and help meet those expectations. Years from now, my students may forget what we discussed, students may forget what I assigned, but I hope that they will never forget how they felt in our classroom.
