More about Lisa...

 My area of expertise is the rhetoric of environmental change, and I am particularly interested in the role of consumption and new media in shaping the way we interact with the natural world.  I enjoy bringing my passion for environmental communication into the classroom when I teach public speaking courses that focus on the theme of sustainability.

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy being outdoors, baking, and spending time with my husband and two young daughters.
