Teaching Interests

I am very excited to see the progression that ensues throughout one semester of Oral Communication. Not only do students skills, knowledge and confidence increase, they also begin to build effective and lasting relationships with their classmates! In addition, when students are given the opportunity to choose to partner alongside organizations and community groups whose missions they are passionate about, it is a joy to see lifelong advocates for positive social change take root!

Oral Communication and Communication, Community and Change

Personal/Professional Interests

I am passionate about advocating for and educating families of children who have been born a cleft lip and/or cleft palate, and the time that I have the opportunity to spend with my fabulous family is priceless.
