Selected Teaching Experiences

I am an Associate Professor in the School of Communications at Elon University. I teach classes in the Communication Design major and our numbers have grown exponentially since Elon launched the major in 2014. In fact, Communication Design is one of the top ten fastest growing majors at Elon. I am a faculty advisor for Live Oak Communications, a faculty-led, student run communications agency where the team and I work with real clients.

While at Elon I authored the textbook, Oh @#$% I’m Graduating! A Student’s Guide to Creating a Killer Portfolio, and I co-authored “Teaching Coding in the Mass Communication Classroom” in the Journal of Media Education and “External Resource Use for Undergraduates Learning Coding in Communications” in the Journalism and Mass Communication Educator.

I worked at Virginia Tech from 2006–14, and I spent a large part of this time serving as the Area Coordinator and Chair of the Visual Communication Design program. I also served as a faculty advisor for VDS4 (later rebranded as FourDesign), which was a faculty-led, student run graphic design agency.

During this time I published my first book, A Graphic Design Student’s Guide to Freelance: Practice Makes Perfect, authored the journal article “Creating Experiential Learning Environments” in Design Behaviors: International Design Research Journal, and won over twenty peer-reviewed awards for my graphic design work.

I taught overseas at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar from 2002–05. At the time, VCU-Qatar was a women’s university in Doha, Qatar and part of an education initiative started by Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned. My first teaching position was to teach young, primarily Muslim women, about Graphic Design and Visual Communication. This experience made me feel like I was helping change the world in positive, tangible ways.

Working abroad left and indelible mark on me as I experienced life working as an expat, designer, and educator. During this time I got to know many people with very diverse backgrounds. My travels took me to Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Netherlands, Oman, Qatar, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam.
