I have been teaching at Spokane Community College since 1976 and I have loved every day of it! Communication classes offer tools that students can utilize in both their personal and professional lives. In addition to teaching, I am a local, regional, and national communications and business consultant.

I received my Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in Speech Communication both from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!). I also received another Master's degree in Organizational Consultation from Whitworth.

My special areas of emphasis in teaching are: Interpersonal Communication, Conflict Management, Intercultural Communication, Business and Professional Communication, Small Group Communication, Listening, and Gender Communication.

I love coming to work every day and seeing students become more self-empowered as they learn to communicate more effectively!
