Writing Consultant Bios

Shelley

I received my bachelor's and master's degree in English from Texas Tech University and have over 20 years' experience teaching writing to students. I enjoy working with students in all genres of writing, including personal statements, resumes, and dissertations. I strive to bring compassion, empathy, and a motivational spirit to our sessions. When I have leisure time, I enjoy traveling with my husband, relaxing with my pets, and fostering animals until they find their forever homes.

 

 

 

Maura

I am double-majoring in Honors sciences and humanities and communication studies. I am also double-minoring in legal studies and philosophy. As a fourth-year student, I have begun research for my undergraduate Honors thesis. This entails researching the effect of today's worldviews on philosophy classrooms - a topic that I enjoy exploring! My career goals include entering the world of publishing and later applying for law school. Ultimately, I wish to pursue intellectual property law. However, academics and career goals do not form the entirety of who I am! I enjoy journaling, reading, taking nature walks, listening to classic rock music, and entertaining my miniature dachshund - or “weenie dog” - named George.

Feel free to show me a photo of your pet(s) during a consultation; I'd love to see them!
