Student Staff



Hi! I’m a Senior English major with a minor in Communication. I grew up in a small town in North Carolina that no one has heard of. I enjoy (non-academic) reading, eating, and watching Netflix. I love drinking coffee and not wearing shoes so you will probably see me doing both of these things.

Greetings! I’m from a little town you probably haven’t heard of called Owenton. I am a Junior English major and a Spanish minor. I love traveling, kayaking, hiking, + anything outdoors! This summer I was a raft guide on a class IV river in Tennessee! As far as writing goes, I enjoy research papers most, but I am looking to strengthen my creative writing skills. I’m looking forward to working with you! Have a wonderful day!

Hello! I am a Junior English major with a minor in creative writing, and Appalachian studies. My favorite thing to do in my free time is spend time with my husband and dog. I absolutely adore sloths and manatees; they are definitely my favorite animals. Come see me down at Writing Resources!

Office Assistant Chris standing in front of brick wall


I am planning on majoring in English. I am currently a freshman living in Blue Ridge Residence Hall. Recently, I learned that my collection of poetry and incantations was accepted by a publisher, and I’m really excited to become published. I love a wide variety of academic studies and would love to talk about any common interests. I’m active in social issues and am very active. I live by Berea’s motto and I believe that people are equal in all aspects of the word.

Consultant Evie standing in front brick wall


Hi! I am a junior majoring in Child and Family Studies with a concentration in nutrition and a Creative Writing minor. My area of focus for consultations is with creative works, but I also enjoy working with outlines, helping writers put their thoughts together, and sentence level structures and grammar. I love reading; some of my favorite authors are Orwell and Steinbeck. I love the smell of fall, campfire smoke, and freshly brewed coffee, especially all together on a cold morning watching the sun come up over the mountains. I’m a weirdo who actually loves airports – yes, even going through security. Coffee,  travel, campfires, books, pens, paper, art, paint, photography, dogs, trees, Star Wars, superhero movies, the beach, hiking, fog, rain, wolves, sunshine, late nights, looking at the stars, first snows, and early mornings are all my loves; I am easily in awe of the world and love observing and experiencing it.

Howdy! I’m a biology major with a love for languages and animation! My favorite sport is swimming, and I get easily interested in a wide variety of topics such as astronomy, physics, and history. I hail from Atlanta, Georgia and have recently picked up drawing and the guitar. I play video games, watch anime, and love to get into discussions of photography and cinematography. Despite, my major being Biology and planning to become an optometrist in the future, I hope to see you at the Writing Center soon

Consultant Jaya standing in front of brick wall


Hi there! I am currently a sophomore intending to major in communications. I love exploring different forms of writing and how this translates to the way people express their thoughts. I’d love to help you hash out a starting outline or just organize your thoughts. I look forward to learning new things and both developing and growing as a consultant.

Hi! 你好! I’m from Asheville, North Carolina. I’m planning on being a Biology major, but I love to read and write. Drawing is a hobby of mine. I love pets, but dogs are absolutely my favorite. I have a small dog at home who is my world. I aspire to be a doctor and cure diabetes mellitus. I’m looking forward to meeting you!

Workshop Coordinator Lilli standing in front of brick wall


Hello! I’m a History major, and I use they/them pronouns. I love cartoons, video games, and old anime. I’ll happily talk to anyone about art and definitely cartoons. I’m really into Ghibli movies, as well! I’m from western Kentucky but I’m super happy to be in Appalachia for school! During the summer, my partner and I travel to conventions as Artists, so feel free to talk to me about that!

Office Assistant Matthew standing in front of brick wall


Howdy, y’all! I’m from Bowling Green, KY and I’m a freshman hoping to Major in Political Science and minor in Spanish, but honestly just as clueless as the rest of y’all. Although, I won’t be a consultant, as an office assistant, I will (sometimes) be the first face you see upon entering Writing Resources, so please don’t hesitate to come up to me if you have any questions. I promise I don’t bite! I’m a huge lover of the arts and enjoy reading, writing, and singing on my free time; if you ask, I might belt out a tune for you or recite a ballad, but no promises. I’m so excited to be working in Writing Resources, and I can’t wait to see y’all’s lovely faces this semester!

By the way, I am from Cambodia.
