Teacher | Writer | Researcher

Currently teaching Business Communications full-time at the University of North Texas in Denton. PhD. student in Clemson University's Rhetorics, Communication, and Information Design program. 

My dissertation project, Distributed Agency in Border Communities During Pandemics, uncovers ways rhetorical interactions with the natural ecologies of El Paso and Hidalgo counties have resulted in some members of these communities having agency during the COVID-19 crisis and others not. This work uncovers how these counties were at high risks for contracting the disease because of their unique environmental histories and rhetorical acts that exploited their labor and resources across centuries.
