I am professor and chair of the Department of Communication Studies at The University of Southern Mississippi. For my first nine years, I was also the Speaking Center Director here at Southern Miss. I study rhetoric, focusing on the role that it plays in forming identity. I’ve published in the areas of Southern identity, social movements and animal rights, visual rhetoric, and women and the media. I also publish work in the area of communication centers and peer tutoring. Here’s my full CV (updated 5-18).
I completed my PhD at the University of Georgia and my MA and BA at Texas State University. I’ve previously taught at Texas State University (as a teaching assistant), Del Mar College, Denison University, University of Georgia (as a teaching assistant), and Agnes Scott College.
