I have been teaching at UW-Milwaukee since 2001 in the Department of Journalism, Advertising and Media Studies. I have an Associate Degree from Milwaukee Area Technical College (Photography), BA from Alverno College (Professional Communication) and MA from UW-Milwaukee (Journalism and Mass Comm). My areas of expertise include Advertising, Animals in the Media, and Public Relations. I work extensively with nonprofit animal welfare organizations and teach a course focused on animals and media. My master’s thesis was on animals and the media. I teach advertising/PR courses. I help nonprofit animal welfare organizations with promotions, marketing, public relations, program development, and fundraising.
