Meet The Admin Team



I truly want to believe that there is a way forward from the extreme polarization we are experiencing in this country. I came to Project Connect not only to learn how to participate in thoughtful conversations but how to listen.



I  chose to be a part of Project Connect because I believe that bringing these types of  conversations to the community is the foundation for strengthening our democracy. A huge side benefit is I get to regularly practice how to be a better listener while learning about others’ life experiences, and as I share mine, I get to know myself even better.



As a Communication Instructor and Researcher, I have seen the power of communication at work. Listening and discussing important issues helps us all grow as communicators and citizens. I believe that these conversations can help bridge divides and propel our community forward.

I believe in citizens engaging to find what is mutually beneficial: the common good.



I am a communication studies educator, interested particularly in the ways that our everyday communication acts serve to (re)create our reality. Through engaging in Conversations for Change, I am inspired by co-created understandings about deeply important topics that serve to illuminate, interrogate, and transform our perspectives. In cultivating these dialogues among fellow communicators, we contribute to one another's growth. 

Interested in learning more about our Conversations for Change. Please email us for more information.
