Hey there! My name is Ana, and I am majoring in criminal justice and minoring in psychology. One day, I hope to become a homicide detective in a big city, preferably in London or Manhattan. Though I do love studying the complexities of crime and the human mind, I also love writing and helping others develop their writing skills. Though I enjoy writing rhetorical analysis papers the most, I can also assist in a wide range of assignments. My strengths in writing include idea development, organization, word choice, and brainstorming content. While I’m happy to assist in any academic writing, I also have a passion for creative writing, which only adds to my infinite love for the craft. When I’m not at school or writing short stories, I’m devouring new novels, playing video games with my girlfriend, enjoying theater performances, watching movies or TV shows, or playing with one of my two cats. Thank you for coming to the Writing Center and I hope to meet you soon!


Hello! My name is Ashley Fluellen. I am dual majoring in English and secondary education, with a minor in philosophy.

I am happy to help at any point in the writing process from developing ideas and creating outlines to fine-tuning different types of theses and simply polishing off a nearly finished paper. I secretly love to paint and draw in my free time, and napping is my passion. I’m very excited to meet you this semester!


Hello! My name is Bailey M. Gamberg, and I am double majoring in English writing and history. I hope to someday teach English abroad and eventually be a curator for an art or historical museum.

I can also help with lab reports and papers for other courses. In my spare time I like to nap, eat French fries, and read about Impressionist Art. Thanks for coming down to the Writing Center and hope to see you soon!


Hello! My name is Cameo, and I am pursuing a BA of music with a double minor in English writing and Latin American studies.

My strengths are in the English, history, music, and anthropology, but I am excited to help in other subject areas as well. I am particularly fond of editing research papers in any subject. When I am not researching world music or practicing flute, I am usually running, biking, or rock climbing.

My writing strengths include brainstorming content, organization, formatting, flow, and sentence level concerns such as grammar. Outside of my academic life you can find me enjoying nature to the fullest out on the slopes with my snowboard, backpacking, or playing tennis. I look forward to meeting with you this semester!


Hi there! My name is Danielle Hartnett, and I am an English major with a minor in Linguistics. I love collaborating with others about different genres of writing because it gets my own juices flowing and motivates creativity. I have a personal knack for conversations that explore issues a writer may have with their writing. Regardless of subject, I appreciate dissecting and evaluating text, but am especially strong in close reading and theoretical analysis. 


Hi! My name is Elizabeth; although some think that’s lengthy, so I also go by Beth.  I am seeking a dual degree in nutrition (dietetics) and nutritional sciences with a minor in psychology.  I have a knack for brainstorming and revising those hard science-y writing assignments!

I’d be happy to help you with technical writing projects, including resumes, cover letter, and memos. I find punctuation and grammar to be fun, so come see me if you’re struggling with commas, sentence structures, subject-verb agreement, and the like. In my free time, I enjoy auto crossing, hiking, reading, playing video games, and completing jigsaw puzzles.

Hi all! My name is Jake Trujillo, and I am studying secondary education with an emphasis in social studies, and a minor in English.

When I’m not studying or writing, I love reading (anything Steinbeck), hiking, and running—you can usually catch me on the trails in our area.

Hello, my name is Reece Gibb! I am graduate student, pursuing an MA in political science, with an emphasis in American electoral politics and identity politics.

Having consulted with students in Community Health Sciences, I am also familiar with the process of formatting, composing, and revising literature reviews. When I'm not neurotically obsessing over presidential politics, I enjoy playing video games, composing poetry, and honing my German language skills.


Hey! My name is Scout Garrison, and I am currently an undergraduate majoring in material science/engineering. I am honored to have the opportunity of working in the Writing Center. Sentence structure, flow, and organization are my forte. I am a lover of classic literature and have acted extensively in the past, so I am more than happy to help people organize their stories in an effective, dramatic way. I can also aid with other genres that may require a less dramatic touch. When I’m not helping others, I am playing chess, snowboarding, or talking extensively. I look forward to helping and meeting everyone.
