Bio

Personal

I am a Cincinnati native, but have lived in Arizona, Pennsylvania, and New York, as well as Kentucky. I am married to a physical therapist who works at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. We have a son and a daughter who are both creative and gifted.

Academic

I earned both my Ph.D. and M.A. in Communication from the University of Kentucky, and I received my B.A. in Organizational Communication from Xavier University with a minor in Spanish. My primary areas of study include Interpersonal, Organizational, and Small Group Communication with a special emphasis in the area of conflict management. 

I enjoy teaching both at the graduate and undergraduate level. I am very excited about teaching a study abroad class in London on Cultural Comparisons of British and American Sport through the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad.

Bio

Personal

I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH where I currently
reside. I enjoy shopping, singing, and spending time with family and friends.

Academic

I am the Academic Specialist for the College of Informatics.

My duties include assisting with purchase requisitions, reserving rooms, posting class cancellations, and being the first contact for students, faculty, and visitors needing assistance with a variety of requests. 

I earned my bachelor’s degree from Wright State University in Psychology. I also worked at WSU in advising, admissions, and assisted with orientation and first-year programs. Being in an academic environment is what led me to where I am now. NKU possesses a close sense of community and I am happy to be a part of such a diverse college within the university.
