I am from Seagrove, North Carolina and have lived there all my life. I am pursuing my B.S.W. in social work and intend to continue into the one-year master's program here at UNCP. Once I finish with school I plan to get a job working with children; however, I am not quite sure which direction I want to go with that yet.
I enjoy working in the Writing Center and hope I am of help to whoever comes in.
I am a lecturer in the English Dept. My greatest accomplishments include completing the Boston marathon in 4 and ½ hours, being nominated for Sundress Publication's Best of the Net 2012 Award, and starring as The School Master in Wild West City Amusement Park.
After teaching classical art in a private atelier for nearly a decade, I decided to return to university to finish a degree in English education. I'm a junior, and this year received the English department's writing scholarship, the Grace Loving Gibson Endowed Scholarship. I fell in love with writing in high school, with reading long before, and I'm very excited to return to literature studies with a more focused and critical eye, and for the opportunity to work with students who come the writing center at all stages of their projects.

I am very excited to be serving as the Graduate Assistant with the Writing Center this Spring semester! Born and currently living in Fayetteville, I spent a considerable amount of time in Greensboro where I completed my B.A. in Media Studies, concentrating in Media Writing. Here at UNC Pembroke, I am studying for M.A. in English Education with plans to teach. I enjoy reading, writing, and helping out my peers, which makes my position with the Writing Center a happy one.
Hello, my name is Kelli. Originally from Clinton, North Carolina, I moved to Pembroke with my family in 2009. I fell in love with reading and writing at a very young age, which often caused my passion for English to spill over into my conversations with others. My self-proclaimed titles of "bookworm" and "people person" made my choice to major in English education a natural decision. I look forward to one day becoming a teacher and sharing my excitement for books, words, and learning with my students. Working in the Writing Center gives me a chance to not only gain experience in my field of study, but to also help students develop writing skills that will hopefully stay with them for a lifetime!
I was born in Boston, but raised in Las Vegas. I left the bright lights for the U.S. Army in 2006, and have lived in North Carolina since. I am studying zoology and preparing for a career in medicine.
I love teaching and helping others solve problems. It is personally rewarding to be a catalyst of improvement in others' writing.
I am from Bronx, New York, but I grew up in Fayeteville, North Carolina. I am a criminal justice major, and I hope to have a career in forensic toxicology. I enjoy reading, writing novels, crocheting, and watching anime.
I like working in the writing center because I enjoy helping others reach their full potential. I love to see people grow and develop the skills and imagination to be great writers.
I was born in Raleigh, and after several years in the state I moved to Knoxville, TN. I lived there for ten years and just recently moved back to North Carolina. I am an environmental biology major with a minor in creative writing. I hope to become a wildlife biologist, but am still keeping an open mind to other future possibilities.
I am very passionate about writing and hope to help others recognize their true potential and feel more comfortable with writing.
Hi! I'm Julie and I am excited to be working in the University Writing Center! From Fayetteville, I am a junior undergraduate pursuing a B.A. in accounting and a minor in Spanish. I plan to become a certified public accountant after I recieve my M.A.
I enjoy helping others very much, as I am very involved with UNCP organizations that like to give back. I'm aiming to make every visit to the writing center a fulfilling experience, and I hope that everyone who leaves here will hold a deeper understanding of and appreciation for writing.
I am originally from Savannah, Georgia, but I grew up in the Hope Mills/Fayetteville area. I am an English education major with a minor in biblical studies. Once I finish my degree, I hope to get a job as an English teacher at a local high school and continue on to my master's degree.
I enjoy working in the Writing Center because not only does it provide valuable experience for my future as a teacher, but also because I am able to help fellow students improve their writing skills.
I am the director of the University Writing Center and I also tutor students for several hours each week. I am originally from California, where I earned my B.A. and M.A. in English. I then lived in Seattle for nine years, directing a writing center and earning my Ph.D.
I enjoy teaching courses at UNCP but I am glad that I am also able to meet with students one-to-one as a tutor in the writing center. I love to hear about students' ideas and collaborate with them as they improve their writing.
