Hello and welcome to my webpage! This page was designed with communication studies students in my classes at Northern Virginia Community College in mind, but all are welcome.
I started teaching at NVCC in fall 2013, and I have been teaching communication courses since 2003. I absolutely love the communication discipline and I love teaching students. NVCC is particularly amazing because we have students from over 130 different countries. When this diverse group of students takes a public speaking class, there are many opportunities to share experiences and interests. We learn so much from each other. And it’s amazing.
When I’m not on campus, I can be found doing something outdoorsy with my family. My husband, Kevin, is a communication professor at GMU, and my son, Hal, is a 2 year old toddler. We also live with three very spoiled kitties.
