I’m excited to contribute to the growth of journalism education, free speech understanding and my Whitworth and Spokane communities through service.

 

Conference Chair/Co-Chair

Washington Journalism Education Association East-Side J-Day, Whitworth University (2013-present)

  • This annual conference is a collaborative effort between the Washington Journalism Education Association (WJEA) and Whitworth University, and serves high school journalism students and their advisers in central Washington, eastern Washington, northern Idaho and Western Montana. It offers a series of workshops on a variety of media production topics as well as continuing education for advisers.

Faculty Adviser

The Whitworthian, Whitworth’s student newspaper (2020-present)

The Whitworthian is a monthly student newspaper and daily website covering the news of the greater campus community.


Beyond the Pines, Whitworth’s student-run PR agency (2013-2020)

Beyond the Pines is a student-run PR agency serving nonprofit organizations in the greater Spokane/eastern Washington area. The group now regularly serves 5-7 clients a semester, producing real-world PR initiatives for organizations that could not afford such support on their own.
