Public Affairs & Issues Management (Public Relations)
I have been on faculty in Chico State's Department of Journalism & Public Relations since 2005 and was department chair from fall 2011 to spring 2020.
I am the third generation in a newspaper family and worked for newspapers in New Mexico, Texas, Oregon, Montana, Nevada and Indiana.
My academic research focuses on media; application and social impact of emerging technologies; corporate media ownership; and race, diversity and gender representations in the media.
My personal interests include hiking, music, books, Boxers 🐾 and yoga (not necessarily in that order). And naps. I like naps.
I'm a virgo, which probably explains a lot. ♍
Since 2000 – and counting
Fun fact: I don't drink coffee. Ever.
And too many are from the 1970s
