I have been teaching communication since I was a graduate student in 1990. I have a BA in Communication from Washington State U., an MA in Communication from Eastern New Mexico U., and an EdD in Educational Leadership from Idaho State U. I’ve “been around” academically and have taught at 4 universities, 1 liberal arts college and a for-profit college before coming to CWI.
I am so pleased to contribute to student learning at CWI! I am amazed by the breadth and depth of life experience and knowledge that our students bring to the classroom. Each semester a new community of learners develops in our communication classrooms, and I thoroughly enjoy watching CWI students grow as communicators.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy exercise, walking the greenbelt, traveling, exploring the great state of Idaho with my husband and our dog and spending time with friends old and new. I am also a lifelong learner, and continue to take college courses myself.
