My focus has always been on critical thinking and argumentation. I hope students can see the powerful link between a public voice and social change.

I am the Student Learning Outcomes Coordinator for the college and have been Chair of the Speech Communication Department for 3 years. I am also a member of the Accreditation Participatory Governance Committee. For last the 7 years I was the Director of Forensics of the CCSF Speech and Debate Team. I am the past president of the Cross Examination Debate Association and the current Treasurer of the Northern California Forensics Association.

Research articles and essays appear in Performing Democracy, The Art of Rhetorical Criticism and in the following journals: Text and Performance Quarterly and Women Studies in Communication.

In my free time I enjoy wine tasting, stand-up comedy, and theatre.
