I've spent my career helping adults to be more effective communicators in written or oral form, and I love what I do. I have been at TCC full-time since 2004 teaching public speaking, composition, literature, and other communication-oriented classes. Before TCC, I taught at OSU Institute of Technology, worked in the telecommunications industry, and ran my own business. Teaching is what I love best, and I strive to create a rigorous but supportive classroom community whether online or in class.
