Ph.D. Communication, 2013

Focus of Graduate Studies:

My research focuses on the intersection between discourses of pregnancy and mothering and the Internet. Currently, I am studying the ways that new mothers in online communities challenge or reinforce the dominant discourse of good motherhood.

Teaching Interests:

My coursework has prepared me to teach all levels of courses related to computer-mediated communication and its intersection with other areas of communication, including interpersonal communication, group communication, and business communication. I have taught Communication 103, Communication 105 (face-to-face and online), and Communication 300. .
