Born in South Bend, Indiana, raised in Winchester, Kentucky, I majored in Radio/TV at UK and worked in television stations (WKYT, WTVQ and WTHR) for 6 years before living in Saudi Arabia for 3 years. I then earned a Master of Journalism degree at the University of North Texas and embarked on a 22 year career in Public Relations, mostly in the Houston area. After moving back to Denton, Texas I began teaching in the Strategic Communications department of the Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas. I teach upper-level required classes in PR campaigns/writing, Ethics, Law & Diversity, and Social Media. In the fall semester I teach a survey course in Public Relations for graduate students. I am also the PRSSA faculty advisor, and spent 4 years as the accreditation chair for the Dallas chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. I am currently the Ethics Officer for the Dallas PRSA chapter. I am passionate about strategic communications and social media, and lend my expertise as a consultant whenever possible. I am affiliated with Strategic4Sight, a Dallas-based marketing and PR consulting firm specializing in the needs of nonprofit organizations. On a personal note, I volunteered as a docent at the Houston Zoo for 18 years, have worked for a regional coastal environmental organization in the Galveston-Houston area, and have traveled to 23 countries. I've lived in Saudi Arabia and Mexico. My creative interests include gardening, photography, cooking, sewing, beading and jewelry design. I love all kinds of music, including opera, most forms of popular music, theater, and classical music. I am also a Maryknoll Affiliate and am part of the Maryknoll Mission Education Team that helps parishes with formation before and after short-term mission trips. I have been on mission trips to Patzun, Guatemala. My husband and I are fixing up an old house in Denton, Tx, where we live with our four cats and a basset hound.
