Title: Assistant Professor of Communication Studies

"I’m fortunate to have begun my academic career in communication studies at BVU. The academic rigor combined with the strong theoretical foundation I received from the communication studies faculty prepared me to do well in my graduate programs, and ultimately my career. Additionally central to my success is the mentoring I’ve received. From making decisions about graduate programs to navigating work-life concerns, the same professors who guided me over 10 years ago when beginning my undergraduate work continue to provide advice and guidance to this day."
