I graduated from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN, in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and minors in French and Intercultural Studies. Throughout my undergraduate career, I developed a strong interest in the messages and impact of the mass media, particularly film and television. I am also interested in intercultural communication and the ways in which different cultures utilize and are influenced by the media. I plan to continue my studies in the Rhetoric and Public Culture track.
For the past year I’ve been working as a workers’ compensation claims adjuster for Indiana Insurance in Milwaukee, WI. I’m really excited to get back into academia, and am definitely looking forward to moving somewhere a little less frigid! In my free time, I love music (playing piano, singing, and of course listening to good music!) and I’m proud to be a huge bookworm. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!
