|why did you study communication?|
|I was painfully shy when I was younger, and I am fascinated by human behavior. When I took my first Interpersonal Communication class with Helen Warren (an amazing teacher and mentor), the information resonated with me and I changed my major for the 6th and final time.|
|why is your chapter important?|
|You will spend a good deal of your life explaining things to other people. The ability to coherently present information in a way that helps people to remember and understand is a very important skill you can use personally and professionally.|
|what is your favorite way to waste time at work?|
I don’t have a lot of time to waste, but when I am brain dead and can’t get any work done I play Mahjong on the computer.
|what cartoon character best represents your personal philosophy?|
|Spongebob Squarepants. He is a bit goofy, and often makes mistakes. But he is always kind to people (uh, sea creatures), he tries his best, and in spite of all of the trouble he gets in, he learns something from it and everything works out in the end.
|what are your favorite memories of Christmases past?|
|Hanging out in the kitchen with my Grandmas, talking with them about life, and eating great food!|
