Our Staff

The Writing Center is staffed by professional instructors and peer tutors who work with individual students to help them understand and apply the principles of effective writing. Within the guidelines of writing lab pedagogy, each person brings a unique style to assisting our students. In addition, we are continually upgrading our skills, whether in computer technology, composition theory, or writing center ethics.

She holds both a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Arts in English (with concentrations in rhetoric/composition and American literature) from the University of New Orleans.  In the past, she has worked and taught at the University of New Orleans and at Dillard University.
