My name is Amanda Slone and I am originally from Lexington, Kentucky. I earned my B.A. in Organizational Communication from UK in 2014, and my M.A. in Communication Studies from UK in 2016. I am currently a doctoral candidate in the Graduate Program in Communication in the College of Communication and Information. My research interests lie at the intersection of organizational and instructional communication; namely, training and development. My hobbies include cooking and baking, watching movies and tv shows, and cuddling with my fur babies, Alex, Felicity, and Lucy.
