Professor Hoopes teaches COMM 1800 Foundations of Commerce at the McIntire School. She taught organizational behavior in McIntire's Integrated Core Experience (ICE) during the fall 2020 semester, and before coming to UVA, taught the core undergraduate Organizational Behavior course at The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.

In addition to P-E fit, she has done research on topics related to communication, leadership, and teams.

Before joining the McIntire School, Professor Hoopes completed a postdoctoral fellowship at UVA’s Darden School of Business. She earned her PhD from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, her M.B.A. from Brigham Young University, and her B.S. in Accounting and Spanish from Brigham Young University.
