Hi! I am Secondary Education and English major with a minor in Special Education. In the writing center, I enjoy helping people on their CORE and Education papers, but I can help with any type of assignment. If someone needs help expanding thoughts, developing a thesis, or just brainstorming ideas to get a good start, I am always here to help! I enjoy teaching and helping people express their thoughts through their writing, and I look forward to helping you soon!

I am a Senior Biology major with minors in Spanish and Psychology.  This is my fourth semester working here as a writing consultant.  I love writing and the process that is writing, and I am eager to share my experience and knowledge with anyone who comes to the writing center for help or makes an appointment with me.  As a writing consultant, I am experienced with a variety of writing techniques including different citations, such as MLA, APA, and CSE, forming ideas and theses, and, my favorite, organizing.  Even though I am a Biology major, I am prepared to help with different styles of writing for any class. I hope to see you in the writing center soon!
