1. Curious. I was one of those kids that constantly asked “why” and “what.” I seek information and knowledge. I love to learn about people, ideas, hobbies and all the world around me.
  2. Teacher. As a professor at Rochester College since 1999, I hope to share my love for communication, for information and for knowledge with my students. I bring passion for the craft of communication, writing and design. I enjoy helping students improve their writing and teaching them new strategies and techniques as they explore their potential. I bring inquisitiveness, helping students see beyond the status quo. I bring challenge and encourage students to reach higher.
  3. Creator. As a PR professional, I love communicating with words and with design. My career has taken me from writing for a trade magazine, to working as a PR pro for various educational institutions, and to operating my own PR consulting firm, where I wrote, designed and advised on a myriad of communications matters for nonprofits, small businesses, agencies and a few Fortune 500 firms.
  4. Seeker. Above all, I strive to live a full life. I want to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly. When my eyes open each morning, I seek gratitude and try to think positively. And I want to help others do the same.
