Spring 2015 office hours: Wednesdays by appointment.

Welcome to my bio page! 2014 marks my tenth year as a Bison. I am proud to be part of such an exciting university community and to work with talented colleagues and students. This year, I have started a organizational communication research group for undergraduate students. I am excited to help students learn research fundamentals and explore organizational communication issues.

My research focuses on organizational communication broadly and corporate social responsibility specifically. I enjoy exploring how corporations and non profit organizations partner to create social change. My research has been published in the Journal of Communication, Communication Monographs, Management Communication Quarterly, and Business & Society. I have also had my work showcased by the Conference Board of Directors and was a guest on a Webinar hosted by the group.

This year I will teach classes in our management communication and public relations majors. I have received numerous teaching awards including Blue Key Distinguished Educator, College of Arts, Humanities, & Social Sciences Outstanding Teacher of the Year award, and Department of Communication’s “Student Choice” teacher several years. I also have been selected by the Bison Ambassadors as an Apple Polisher for my teaching and mentoring activities for the past eight years.

I enjoy gardening, being a hockey mom, reading and swimming. I am close to completing 50 miles in the pool! My husband and I are raising our three sons along the tranquil and turbulent Red  River in Moorhead, Minn. 

I will be on leave in the fall to focus on my National Science Foundation grant work. I will teach COMM 482: Organizational Communication II and COMM 750: Advanced Issues in Communication (focus: corporate social responsibility) in the spring.
