Interim Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
Health and Organizational Communication
Ph.D., Michigan State University, 2000
I am married to “The Max” and have two children, Maddy and Jojo (Jonathan). Teaching is my passion and my favorite classes are: Deception, Health, and anything Organizational! I also really enjoy teaching Honors 265G! In the past few years my methods of teaching have greatly changed from being the “sage on the stage” to working on service learning projects along with my students. Through these new methods I hope to introduce students to the feeling of “community” and how a small change can have significant impact on a population in need. Also, through applying the principles from a class, it is my hope these principles will stay with them when they leave NMSU. My research has focused on marginalized populations like 1st or 2nd generation Mexican American youth and women in the areas of tobacco use and breast cancer detection. I have also done research on how violations of trust increase anti-social behaviors toward managers, in particular, why people will lie to their bosses. Other research, like one of the links below, focuses on agenda-setting theory and how to get relevant health issues on the agenda of those in power.
Basically, my research and teaching focuses on social justice and giving voice to those who feel they have none. See “I choose to speak” video for more info: http://vimeo.com/23985787.
