The circumstances of your life

have uniquely qualified you to make a contribution.

And if you don't make that contribution, nobody else can make it.

My career includes a broad range of experiences in the academic and business worlds including working as a lobbyist, a political campaign manager, a marketing research analyst, a pharmaceutical sales representative, and a medical equipment sales executive.

I have been teaching communication courses since 1994 at colleges and universities in West Virginia, Florida and Kentucky. I have also served as Director of Satellite Campuses for Concord University, as Program Coordinator for an Inside Washington Academic Seminar, and as Director of Student Services and the Writing Center at a four-year college exclusively for disabled students in Florida.

Currently, I teach communication and public relations classes as an Assistant Professor of Communication Arts at Concord. I serve on the Human Subjects Review Board, the University Research Committee, and the Academic Policy Committee.

My research interests include deceptive communication, interactivity, computer-mediated-communication, communication technology use and effects, cognitive psychology, and educational psychology.

I am a member of the National Communication Association, the Public Relations Society of America and the West Virginia Public Relations Society of America.
