A key objective for me when teaching is to help students connect what they are learning in the classroom to what they will be doing after graduation. My goal is to help them see the big picture through discussion, critical thinking, and interactions with public relations professionals. I started teaching at MSU as an adjunct in 2015, and since then have taught seven different courses. Additionally, I have developed and managed eight seminars for the public relations and communication employees of Saudi Aramco, as part of the partnership the College of Communication Arts and Sciences had with the company (2012-2015). A key component for me in teaching is to integrate experiential learning experiences for the students.
