|Area of Specialty:
||My primary research focus is on message reception as it applies to instructional, interpersonal, health and organizational contexts. I am especially interested in the effects of communication-both face-to-face and mediated-on learning, health, and relational outcomes in training and instructional processes.
My expertise and professional training encompass specialty areas which include Team Building, Mediation, Negotiation and Conflict Management, Leadership, Communication Skills Training and Development, Technological Innovations in Organizations, and Business and Professional Speaking. I am a master trainer in Team-Based Learning (TBL)-a collaborative instructional strategy that emphasizes learning to use concepts rather than merely learning about them. I have consulted with and designed programs for such groups as Shriner's Hospital, University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, UK Emerging Leader Institute, Boone County Schools, Ohio Leadership Institute, Moorhead State University, Oklahoma City Clinic, Norman Police Academy, Education, Prevention, Intervention Community Center, Southwest Regional Center for Drug-free Schools and Communities, University of Nebraska Foundation, and the United States Department of Defense. I completed the training and Development Certificate Program developed by the University of Oklahoma Center for Public Management and Educational Development and am certified by the Institute of Cultural Affairs as a professional trainer for Basic Group Facilitation Methods and Participatory Strategic Planning.

|Primary Research Focus:
||Message reception and processing; predominantly concerned with how human beings come to understand, organize, and use the information contained in face-to-face and mediated messages, the ways information is combined, and how this organization comes to affect attitude and behavior change-especially in instructional, health, and other applied (engineering, mathematics) contexts.
I am especially interested in identifying mechanisms that provide strategic direction for increasing or decreasing the effects of communication-especially in instructional, organizational, group and health contexts.
||For the past nine years my research program has included studies involving health risk takers and prevention, curriculum development, team performance and collaborative learning environments, and investigations of the value and impact of communication technology on health outcomes and student learning.
