I began my university administrative experience in 1997 as the course director for two of our multi-section general education courses (COM 252 Interpersonal Communication and COM 281 Small Group Communication).
From 2005-2009 I served as Associate Dean for Graduate Programs in Communication where I was responsible for all facets of administering the M.A. and Ph.D. programs.
From 2011-2014 I served as the first Academic Director of the Innovation Network for Entrepreneurial Thinking (iNET).
In 2012 I was asked to serve as Associate Dean for Administrative and Academic Affairs.
I became the Senior Associate Dean for Administrative Affairs in 2013 where a large majority of my responsibilities were associated with data analytics. I served as Senior Associate Dean until January 1, 2020.
I served as Interim Dean for the College of Communication and Information from August 2018 until August 2019. Although I have over 20 years of experience in administration, I am excited to return to my academic career as a full-time researcher and teacher in the Department of Communication beginning January 1, 2020.
