Dr. Janet Birkey didn't follow the conventional route when pursuing her education. Instead, the Communication Department professor had a family before finishing her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from ENMU in 2009. Since then, Birkey has earned both her Master's and Doctorate.
"As a nontrad [sic] it was so much more meaningful," Birkey said, "I was willing to make more sacrifices because I realized I had no time to waste."
Before coming to teach at Eastern, Birkey ...worked as a reporter for the newspaper on Cannon Air Force Base.
"It was a great job," Birkey said, "[but] the biggest challenge was that people were always looking for a mistake... Just remember, those people are not your audience at heart."
