She said, "I presented two research presentations. I presented my co-authored piece with Dr. Tina Coffelt from Iowa State University. It was a co-authored piece sponsored by the Central States Communication Association (CSCA) Federation Prize (grant) - Will my partner leave me?: The effect of STI disclosures on developing romantic relationships." "Additionally, I presented a single authored piece, I was more into it than you: Examining linguistic style matching in partners’ individual and joint storytelling about turbulent events, as a poster presentation. I received a Top Poster Presentation Award (2nd place)."
