I taught at Greenville College for 25 years, retiring in May 2015. I am the wife of Stephen and mother of Chris ('93) and Corey ('98). I am the grandmother of Alexa, Andrew and Aiden. While in college I was asked to co-write a communication textbook with Dr. Rob Anderson. We wrote/created three editions of the theory text Questions of Communication: A Practical Introduction to Theory.
In addition I taught dozens of different courses across campus, designed and taught courses for GC's Goal Program; conducted numerous workshops, both and and off-campus; served as an internship facilitator for over a hundred students; mentored COR 401 groups; and served as an external reviewer for Communication departments at Blackburn College and Principia College.

Retirement should be fun when I get there, but adjunct teaching allows me to remain in the classroom, where I continue to grow with my students. A highlight of my life was receiving the Richard W. Stephens' Outstanding Faculty Award in 2013.
