What do you do at UNK?

Currently I teach Fundamentals of Speech, Public Speaking, Nonverbal Communication as well as Professional Communication. I also teach the Thompson Scholar section of the Fundamentals of Speech Communication course as well as the First Year program courses. 

Why choose Communication at UNK?

Our department has a wonderful blend of experienced instructors mixed in with younger teachers whom utilize cutting age technologies and state of the art teaching venues. We pride ourselves as a team and know our students not only by name but by virtue of his or her talents and abilities. It is our job to listen and to push our students to succeed in their chosen field. I am most proud to be a part of this process.
