Though I’m a native Coloradan, I’m coming to Fort Collins from my second home in Tyler, Texas. While there, I received my M.A. in Communication from the University of Texas at Tyler. During my time at UTT, I worked as a graduate assistant for The Graduate School organizing online seminars, as well as a graduate teaching assistant, and finally adjunct faculty after graduation. It was my time and studies at UTT that solidified my love for Communication and research in all of its areas. I look forward to learning more about not only my area of study, but the CSU community!
