Professional Activities
I am working with my advisor in messaging research, which is how to improve behaviors through targeted (relevant) messaging. Specifically, we’ve been looking at contagious diseases. I also am a part-time teaching assistant in the department. I have been working on publications in communication and equine science; two have been accepted for publication in 2020!

Research Interest
As an incredibly inquisitive person, I have a lot of research interests. But as I progress through this program toward my goals, I’ve decided to focus on three research areas in the future: Communication within the equine industry, using messaging to improve our societies, and (one day) I plan to study the experiences of American female service members.

Thesis Title
Is protection motivation theory appropriate for improving preparedness behaviors amongst American equine owners?

Funding Source
Purdue Research Foundation 2020-2021 graduate funding award
