I began my career as a member of the mass media where I worked in commercial radio. Combining that experience with doctoral training in the behavioral sciences, I am able to provide students with a unique perspective in the areas of integrated marketing communication, communication theory, and rhetoric.
My teaching objective is for students to become skilled communicators and informed citizens. We accomplish this by thinking critically about the messages we send and receive.
