My research interests involve studying the various elements of beauty and body standards and the ways in which these ideals are portrayed in the media. Specifically, I am interested in fashion media as well as media that utilize real people as models (e.g. reality television).
I have industry experience working with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bloomington as well as Discovery Communications.
Other interests of mine include: reading, traveling, window-shopping, and telling corny jokes.
