"Hey all! I am from a little town called Grass Valley in Northern California, and I am a nursing major with a minor in theology. I’m a ‘back roads with music blaring’ kind of kid, so you’ll find me escaping the city as often as I can to get into the trees and onto the dirt. I’m excited to work side by side with you as you continue to grow as a writer! "

"Hi, I’m Camryn, a Nursing major from Kaneohe, Hawaii. I love playing sports, reading, and going to the beach. If you can’t find me in the Writing Center, you might catch me giving tours around campus or working concessions during athletic games! I can’t wait to work with you in the writing center and become better writers together!"

"Hi! I’m Emily and I’m a Biology major from Aberdeen, Washington. I like to spend my time hiking around the Pacific Northwest, swimming, playing French horn in the UP Wind Symphony, and relaxing with my friends and family. I look forward to working with you at any stage of the writing process and discovering strategies to make your writing the best it can be!"

"Hello! My name is Jazmin and I am a junior and a Portland local. Some of my favorite things to do are spend time outdoors, watch movies, and read. I’m especially a huge J.R.R Tolkien fan, so if Middle-Earth is your thing, we’re sure to get along! I look forward to working with you on your writing."

"Hello! My name is Catherine with a “C” but Katie with a K”, and I’m an English and Spanish double-major from St. Paul, Minnesota. I love singing, dancing, reading, writing, eating, and taking long walks (preferably in the woods, though I do like the beach). I would love to work with you on your writing!"
