About Me

Welcome to Journalistic Writing for Multi-Media!  This blog is set up as part of JOUR 6193 Journalistic Writing for Multi-Media, a graduate class within the Multi-Media Journalism program at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Ark.  I’ll be posting various things here relating to journalism, writing, and multi-media (most of which will be the result of our required reading material for the course).


A little about me if you’re interested: I’m beginning my second year in the program and plan to graduate in December 2013.  I work full-time at Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus as the Associate Director of Advising and Retention.  Ozark is a small town located about 50 miles from Russellville, and the Ozark Campus specializes in Associate Degrees varying from Air Conditioning/Refrigeration, Automotive Service, Physical Therapy Assistant, EMT/Paramedic, Welding, Human Services, and General Studies.

I live in Russellville with my partner, Elijah, and our three children: Mars (our dog), Kiwi (our cat, also known as Kitters), and Mr. Turtle (our turtle).  Eli and I have been together since April 2007, and were married on October 30, 2011.


Elijah is from Russellville.  He attended Henderson State University in Arkadelphia before moving back to Russellville.

Currently, he is a 911 Dispatcher for Pope County and is working on his Associate of Applied Science in EMT/Paramedic from Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus.  After his Associate’s, he plans to transfer to Arkansas Tech and earn his Bachelor’s degree in Professional Studies and then his Master’s in Emergency Management and Homeland Security.

I am from Sheridan, Arkansas, and am the product of two of the most amazing and influential people ever. I’m the oldest of two– My brother, Alex, is 2.5 years younger than me.


We aren’t sure if we will stay in Russellville or even Arkansas after we finish school.  I know I truly enjoy working in higher education and hope my degree will open new doors for me.  As for now, we are just taking it one day at a time.  We like to travel, but it’s difficult with work and school.  However, every July we go to Michigan to see Eli’s extended family and (in December) to Austin, Texas to see his older brother, Cedric (He tweets, too!).

When we have free time together, we enjoy playing video games, spending time with family, playing with the animals, cooking, etc… We’re pretty easy going.
