My office is located in the Communication Center.  Please stop by and talk with me.  With many years of teaching public speaking, leadership, conflict management, and other communication courses, I have a strong passion for helping students be successful in their education and professional endeavors.  I would be happy to assist you!  Maybe you’d be interested in working in the Communication Center.
