I transitioned into higher education after a 15-year professional media career. My scholastic interests include fracking, energy, mass media, and popular culture. After living in seven states and accumulating approximately 7,000 moving miles during my career(s), I am excited to settle into my role at the University of Jamestown. Although a Minnesotan by birth, I consider this area my adopted home—I married a JHS & Jamestown College alum and have been a regular visitor for many years! Please feel free & drop me a note if you have questions about the Department of Communication or University of Jamestown.
