I joined the NDSU Communication faculty in fall of 2009 after working at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and receiving my Ph.D. in Advertising from the University of Tennessee (2007). Before completing my doctoral studies, I worked in Consumer Marketing at The Post-Crescent newspaper and taught at Northern Michigan University and Harley-Davidson Motor Co. I also have previous experience in college and university admissions and television. I received my M.A. in Communication from Marquette University and B.A. from St. Norbert College.
My research interests focus on branding and message strategy, and mass communication education. My research is published and forthcoming in the Journal of Radio and Audio Media, Electronic News, and the International Journal of Selection and Assessment. My teaching area currently focuses on undergraduate courses in advertising and strategic communication. One of my favorite parts of teaching advertising is working with students on advertising campaigns. My students regularly participate in advertising competitions such as NSAC and the Addy Awards.
This fall I'm teaching COMM 216: Intercultural Communication and COMM 377: Advertising Media Planning. This spring, I will teach COMM 476: Advertising Campaign Practicum and COMM 700: Research Methods in Communication.
