I joined the faculty at WLC in 2022. Prior to coming to WLC I worked in human resources and finance for 4 years. I believe it is important to give students an education rooted in practical applications of theoretical concepts. It is a blessing to prepare students at WLC for their future careers and to be lifelong learners.  Outside of WLC, I enjoy reading, spending time with friends and family, and spending time outdoors.

I am interested in mediated communication, especially on how different channels of communication affect the perception and response of a message. I am also interested in political communication, how it changes over time, and how different mediums cater to different audiences.
