Education: I received both my BA & MA in Communication at the University of Akron.
Background: After working for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for ten years, I decided to return to school to finish my degree. That endeavor led me to the current journey I am on in the pursuit of a Ph.D. here at The Ohio University.
Specialization Interest: My studies and mentor influence, to this point, have provided a foundation for my interest in Health Communication and Small Group Communication. However, the more I learn, the more that foundation expands. I am excited to be here to continue to learn, and also to see where the next path leads!
