I serve as associate professor in the School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago, where I teach courses in social media, public relations and digital communication. I have about 10 years of professional experience in marketing, public relations and corporate communication, including six years as director of communications for Envision, a not-for-profit agency in Wichita, Kansas. I’ve also worked for Via Christi Health, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas, Communities in Schools, and Greteman Group, a marketing communications agency located in Wichita, Kansas.
I earned the Ph.D. in Telecommunications from Indiana University, and am accredited in public relations (APR) by the Universal Accreditation Board.
As a consultant, I help small businesses and non-profit agencies obtain better performance from their websites. I also provide social media planning and coaching. I am available for speaking engagements and short courses.
I write this blog to share my discoveries at the place where public relations, marketing, social media and data meet.
My interests include playing guitar and bass (I love swing jazz, blues and acoustic styles), songwriting, cooking, photography and bicycling.
