I joined the faculty of JCC in 2013 and am a communication instructor and course coordinator. Prior to this position, I taught at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK and the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR. I received my M.A. in communication with a special emphasis on rhetoric and public discourse. I am particularly interested in looking at the cross-sections of race, class, and gender and their impact on communication studies in popular culture.

Feeding the sheep and birds 2/2/2011

When they find me,
a snowy crumbled mass,
it won't be after skiing
the slopes of Vail
or snowboarding at Sundance
with the likes of Robert Redford.

No.
It will be in the pasture
next to the sheep barn where
there is no longer a path
or sign of sheep or human.

No.
It will be beneath the bird feeders
surrounded by spent shells and feather
brushes in the crusty snow.
