Thank you for your interest in my teaching portfolio! I am an eternal student dedicated to teaching and learning. Since 2007, I’ve worked with on-campus and online students in areas of written, verbal, and visual communication. I am currently employed with the Department of English, Humanities, and Communication at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University after teaching at Full Sail University, Valencia College, and Gulf Coast State College. I have experience teaching the a variety of English and Communication courses on campus and online. In addition to teaching, I serve as Vice President of Active Membership on the Board of Directors for the Junior League of Greater Orlando.

My curiosity and thirst for learning mean I am constantly researching, reading, writing, and studying. I enjoy pushing myself and my curriculum to the next level; I always revise material so that my students have the compelling, relevant information delivered in an audience-centered fashion. My life’s focus is to help students become more effective communicators and leaders.

My educational goals are to graduate with my M.A. in Communication in May 2016 and to then pursue a Ph.D. in Communication. My career goals are to contribute to the communication field through academic research, to continue teaching and developing courses, and to grow students’ leadership potential both in and out of the classroom.
