I came to love the field of communication in my teens. As the unofficial spokesperson for my youth group, an active member of the debate team, and natural skeptic; communication & all of its complexities was a natural love. I thoroughly enjoy teaching effective communication strategies in an everyday context. Students teach me new things every day, and I thrive when a classroom is an active environment. When I’m not in the classroom, I’m cheering on the basketball team, hiking, cooking, or hanging out with my son & husband.
