Assistant Professor of Communication

Back to Faculty


I began my career as an Assistant Registrar for my alma mater, and once our children were in school, I pursued a Master of Arts in Communication with SAU. While studying Communication, I was inspired to pursue teaching communication principles and practices. I believe communication is the primary skill for all individuals today, and I work to inspire students to use the opportunities they have to to design and deliver excellent communication.


  • M.A.: (Communication) Spring Arbor University
  • B.S.: (Education) John Brown University


I have a long history with Spring Arbor University, beginning as a coordinator for the Registrar’s Office, serving as an Instructional Designer, and now a professor in the School of Communication and Fine Arts. It is a privilege to spend my career supporting students, staff, and faculty who choose to learn and grow in a Christian community.
