Communication is so much more than the transfer of a message between two parties. Communication is a social process by which we think, behave, and interact. I am fascinated by how people's thoughts, behaviors and actions can be influenced by strategic and intentional communication efforts. My communication knowledge is guided by research and is further influenced by years of application. I've put my theoretical knowledge to the test through my work at Purdue and through my work for clients such as the Indiana State Department of Health, Headgear Holster, and Hotel Tango.
