Expertise and Activities

I teach rhetorical criticism, advanced public speaking, and an upper-level course in the area of reproductive rights. My research investigates reproductive rights in contemporary America. I am most interested in the rhetoric of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. In addition, I conduct seminars and training sessions for groups or individuals who want to improve their public speaking skills.
