Campus, School, and University Service
During the 2019-2020 academic year, I served as an elected member of the Stark Campus Faculty Council, representing Constituency II (Social Sciences). I also chaired the Stark Campus Diversity Committee and the Faculty Technology Committee.
I spent the two previous years as the regional campus representative to the School of Communication Studies Faculty Advisory Committee. I am also a past member of the Stark Campus Colloquium Committee.
In 2020-2021, I look forward to serving a second consecutive term as the regional campus representative to the College of Communication and Information's Curriculum Committee.
I am a member of the Ohio Communication Association (OCA) executive board; I also serve on the OCA's newly formed Diversity and Inclusion Task Force.
Between 2014 and 2016, I held various leadership positions within the Applied Communication Division of the Southern States Communication Association –– including Vice Chair (which involved planning the division’s convention program) and Chair. I also regularly provide service to the National Communication Association's Health Communication Division and the American Public Health Association's Health Communication Working Group.
I currently serve on the editorial boards of Health Communication (2017-present) and Frontiers in Communication (2016-present). I was previously a member of the Southern Communication Journal (2014-2017) and Florida Communication Journal (2012-2014) editorial boards. I also regularly review articles and book proposals for other academic publishers.
