I'm an Assistant Professor focused in Health Communication and Digital Media at South Dakota State University. My PhD is from Purdue University. I am passionate about research and teaching in health campaigns and new media. I enjoy painting and spending time with my husband (also an Assistant Professor) as we build our life in beautiful Brookings, SD.
Katniss Everdeen. I read the Hunger Games prior to any movie announcement, and my vision of Katniss remains my own. While I appreciate the movies, one of the great pleasures of drawing and painting is sharing interpretations of characters all our own.
