Hi, I’m Kelly! I’m a 4th year Ph.D. student in Communication at Mizzou. I currently study both interpersonal and mediated communication. Media is a huge part of my life. When I’m not working on my dissertation or teaching, you can find me hiking (on any trail in any place I can!), watching movies or TV shows, reading a mystery or psychological thriller, baking in my kitchen, or listening to music while singing loudly for everyone to hear (although I could not carry a tune in a bucket with a lid on it!). My goal in any conversation is to quote music lyrics, TV shows, and/or movies, even if you don’t know what I am talking about. I look forward to helping you find your voice in your writing process this year!
