Instructional Communication

Hi, I'm Leanna, an interpersonal communication instructor and PhD student in Communication at UK. I recently moved from Youngstown, Ohio where I received my Master's Degree in Professional Communication at Youngstown State University. I own a side business called Festival Fitness, a mobile fitness and entertainment business that specializes in yoga and happiness. This is also where my research falls. I currently study instructional design of mindfulness training programs. In future research, I hope to create and test happiness training programs.
