Shelley L. Wigley

With Shelley’s experience as a journalist, producer, and public relations specialist, she eventually found a passion for crisis communication. In 2001, she began her teaching career at her alma mater Oklahoma State University as an assistant professor of public relations. In 2007, Shelley completed her Ph. D. in Mass Communication at The University of Oklahoma. 

Shelley has taught for 20 years and currently teaches at the University of Texas at Arlington. She has developed an interactive style of teaching that not only teaches students about crisis communication and PR, but also how to do it. Combining her enthusiasm for crisis communication and interactive learning, Shelley believes that authoring "Crisis Communication: Anticipate. Navigate. Mitigate." with Stukent was the perfect opportunity to create course materials that teach students EVERYTHING they will need to be successful in crisis communication.
