Thank you for visiting my professional webpage!
- I am an associate professor and co-Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Communication at the University of Maryland, where I am also an affiliate faculty member in the Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Currently, I serve as the book review editor for Argumentation and Advocacy and on the editorial boards of the Quarterly Journal of Speech, Women's Studies in Communication, Argumentation and Advocacy, Rhetoric and Public Affairs, and the Journal for the History of Rhetoric.
- I have a PhD from the Department of Communication (with a doctoral certificate in Women's Studies) at the University of Pittsburgh. Before joining the faculty at Maryland, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Communication Studies and the Women's and Gender Studies Program at the University of Nebraska.
- In my free time, I enjoy traveling, finding tasty vegetarian food, going to museums, watching films, and spending time with my family. I am a dog lover and forever thankful to the animal rescues that allowed my family to adopt our beloved pups.
