She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in organizational culture, leadership, training and development, organizational change, business and professional communication, research methods, negotiation and conflict management, the capstone course and introduction to communication.
Her research intersects around the areas of emotion management, stress, work-life and well-being in the workplace. By using both a theoretical and practical lens, Bochantin examines the social issues, member behavior and cultural landscape of organizations to provide managers and HR practitioners with strategies for the implementation of policies, practices and procedures to better the organization and relationships between employees and managers.

Her research has appeared in: Communication Monographs, Academy of Management Journal, Management Communication Quarterly, Small Group Research, Journal of Business and Psychology, International Journal of Business Communication, Women & Language, and Negotiations and Conflict Management Research (among others).

She regularly provides consulting and training workshops for organizations on team building, networking, behavioral styles, conflict resolution and negotiation, leadership communication, goal setting, developing a professional brand and generational differences. She also leads company-wide teambuilding retreats and helps with internal talent management by creating professional development programs for current and emerging leaders. She is also a certified personal and professional coach and provides one-on-one and team-level mentorship at all levels within an organization.
