I am a media and politics researcher. I recently graduated from the Manship school of Mass Communication at Louisiana State University. I'm very excited to join Appalachian State University as an assistant professor in the Communication department in Fall 2015.
My research areas include political communication, political public relations and strategic communication. I am interested in teaching media writing, news reporting, principles and theories of mass communication and PR, introductory strategic communication, women and politics and political communication.
