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