My name is Carie and I seek to "live in inquiry" and to teach rhetoric, communication, professionalism, and ethics classes in ATEC, A&H, ECS, and NSM at UT Dallas. I like to work with students as they refine their communication skills, grow as individuals, and prepare to enter the workplace. When I am not working, I volunteer for the Boy Scouts of America and coach a Model United Nations team. I also like to travel: I was raised in a military family and have traveled all over the world.

My current projects (after creating new curriculum and teaching) include expanding a research project on how breast-cancer patients interact online, investigating how students disclose personal information in online spaces, and evaluating writing curriculum for graduate math students.

I studied English at Baylor and worked as a medical writer for 14 years. I then returned to school for a MA in Technical Writing (University of North Texas) and a PhD in Technical Communication and Rhetoric (Texas Tech) and completed a year of postdoctoral study in ethics and communication at the Center for Spirituality and Ethics at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. I have taught at UT Dallas since 2008—and I love it. WHOOSH!
