a multi-faceted outreach project aimed at encouraging happy, healthy romantic & parent-child relationships


The #2019LoveTalkSummit (on April 16, 2019) was a HUGE success! We had a full audience for all four sessions throughout the day- especially for the Couples Panel at the end of the day where we had over 100 people in attendance (we actually were pushing legal capacity for the room!)! 
I want to thank all of the people who took time out of their day to come to this educational, inspiring event that I hold near and dear to my professor heart! We couldn't do it without the audience!
I also want to thank all of the experts who spoke throughout the day: Mark & Andrea Knopp, Claire Lyons & Ruairi Walsh, Scott & Karen Thayer, Victor Morris & Lucy Cartagena-Morris, Sean Slevin, and David Szwedo! Your insight into the inner workings of romantic relationships and your willingness to share that knowledge at the Love Talk Summit was MUCH appreciated!

I additionally want to thank all of my past students who made incredible mini documentaries in my (SCOM 314) Communication in Romantic Relationships class this past fall: Kaitlynn Moore & Katelyn Merriman, Katie Taylor & Brigham Shellenberger, Cara Reymann & Briana DiNardo, Jess Martin & Audrey Antoniello, Abbey Shultz & Tal Goldstein, and Megan Adams & Daric Clarke. Screening them again yesterday morning was such a joy! (You can click on the video links for the top three films below)
And last, but certainly not least, I want to thank my incredible team: Katie Taylor, Audrey Antoniello, and Briana DiNardo! Your creativity, attention to details, and dedication to the RLH Project and this event made this year the best Love Talk Summit to date! 
I can't wait for next year!
