Personal Statement
This is my 24th year at WSU. Before WSU, I worked as a graduation advisor in CLA at the U of M, attended graduate school, worked as a claims representative for Allstate Insurance in Des Moines, IA, and taught primarily high school English, speech, and theater in Tokyo, Japan, Storm Lake, IA, and Odebolt-Arthur, IA. In my spare time, I enjoy going to auctions and buying antiques, entering photographs in the Houston County Fair and sometimes winning ribbons, making tied quilts for my family, and reading mystery novels.

Professional Statement
I enjoy dissecting rhetoric in its many forms. I have worked with women’s rhetoric, presidential rhetoric, political rhetoric, campaign rhetoric, African-American rhetoric, LGBT rhetoric, and LGBT cinema. Since having taught primarily high school speech, theater, and English, I serve as the department’s liaison with the English and Education Departments concerning the 5-12 Communication Arts and Literature Teaching Major/Licensure and the Middle Level Communication Arts and Literature Endorsement.
