Hi! I'm Professor Ballard (Prof. B.), and I'm delighted to be on the Communication Studies faculty at Highline College.
(Students, please email me via Canvas so I can get to your messages more quickly.)

I'm a third-generation UW Husky and a fourth-generation Washingtonian. I have degrees from the UW and from OSU. My research involves how we communicate about environmental issues and how we communicate to explore and strengthen our personal relationships.

Favorite books are by bell hooks, Paulo Freire, Louise Fortmann, Steven Johnson, and Michael Braungart.
You'll find me walking my rescue dogs when I'm not working. :-)
