Abby (A.B.)

Class Partnerships: ANSC 322, ECHM 443, WRIT 201

Hi, I'm Abby! I'm originally from South Dakota, but moved here to ski, hike, camp, and spend as much time as possible in the mountains. Much to my bank account's chagrin, I love to travel, especially internationally. Here at MSU I am a second-year American Studies student and I'm working on a minor in Hispanic Studies as well. I love hearing about what other people are working on and I'm looking forward to meeting you!


Anna C.

Anna (A.C.)

Class Partnerships: BIOH 440

Hello, my name is Anna (pronounced Ah-nuh).  I am a senior this year studing English writing, and women, gender, and sexuality studies. I prefer tea over coffee. I play tennis in my free time; Serena Williams is a goddess. Working at the Writing Center has expanded my views on writing. I believe that the socialization of writing can build community. One of my favorite parts of this job is to meet new people and to learn from each of you along the way. 


Arden G.

Arden (A.G.)

Class Partnerships: EENV 387, ECHM 443

Hello, I'm Arden, a junior majoring in Math and minoring in Writing. I grew up in the eclectic city of Nashville, Tennessee. A few years ago, I traded the heat and humidity of the South for the cold, snowy mountains of Montana—a decision I have yet to regret. Ultimately, great writing is what brought me to the West to study Ecology. I hope that reading and writing will continue to play such an integral role in helping me find what I'm passionate about.

Hello! My name is Amelia and this is my first semester as a writing tutor. I am a Nevada desert rat majoring in Environmental Science with a minor in writing. In 2018, I spent five months hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. During those months I lived in the mountains, slept under my tarp only when the weather forced me to, and got chased by a skunk in the dark. I am excited to meet you!

Aleesha (A.R.)

Hi there! I’m from Hamilton, MT, a cute nook tucked in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley, which has lots of good fishing, hiking, and camping (which coincidentally are some of my favorite activities). I'm a Secondary English Education and Psychology double major, hoping to become a high school teacher some day. The part of my field of study that I admire the most is that reading and writing give you an opportunity to explore different worlds, different cultures, and different ideas. And I would love to hear about yours here at the Writing Center!

Hannah M.

Hannah (H.M.)

Class Partnerships: ANSC 322, WRIT 201

I was raised by the dank darkness of Alaskan rainforests. Wilderness of place and spirit have always been my teachers, facilitating many cruel lessons of survival that have translated to an inclusive understanding of shame, pain, and trauma. I credit these experiences for developing me, raw and compassionate. I carry these influences with me everywhere I go, including into the Writing Center.

Class Partnerships: EENV 387, WRIT 201

I'm Jessie and I'm a post-bac Secondary Education major. I got my first undergraduate degree at CU-Boulder, then moved to Bozeman after a weekend visit that began with a full moon midnight skin up Bear Canyon straight from the airport. Working at the Writing Center is one of the many incredible opportunities Bozeman and MSU have provided for me. I am excited to be a part of such an encouraging and intelligent community!

Jordan R.

Jordan (J.R.)

Class Partnerships: EENV 387, ECHM 443

My name is Jordan. I'm an English major in my senior year. However, I'll try and name all of the things about me that would leave you uninformed about who I am beyond my field of study. I'm loud, but working on it. My favorite part of the day is talking to people, new and old. I have been singing since I was in elementary school up until this year, but you might see me doing karaoke around town sometimes. I live in Belgrade and complain about commuting more than is socially acceptable. 


Jon S.

Jon (J.S.)

Class Partnerships: WRIT 201

Kaiden W.

Kaiden (K.W.)

Class Partnerships: WRIT 201

Hey! I'm Kaiden (pronounced Kye-din)! While I grew up in the Rocky Mountains, it wasn't until college that I had the freedom to truly begin to cultivate my (slight) adrenaline addiction. I love to scuba dive, rock climb, snowboard, play videogames, and travel to learn about other cultures. The role language plays in cultural and individual identity fascinates me, but my main writing interests lie in poetry and creative writing.

Class Partnerships: EENV 387, ECHM 443

Hi! My name is Lauren Chavez and I am a senior in the English Writing program with a minor in Music. I was born and raised in a suburb of Denver, Colorado and grew up exploring the mountains. I love Creative Writing and all the genres that fall within that, especially poetry! On most days, outside of class, you can find me at home drinking a cup of tea, reading a good book, writing poetry, or on an entirely different spectrum, rock climbing. Now, you can also find me at the Writing Center, so stop by for all your writing needs!


Landon S.

Landon (L.S.)

Class Partnerships: ANSC 322, ECHM 443, WRIT 201, WRIT 494

 Hi, I'm Landon Shipley, a sophomore pre-medicine student majoring in Organismal Biology and Philosophy. I grew up in Polson, Montana, training and playing in the clean Flathead Lake, adventuring throught the wild Mission Mountains, and enjoying pleasant times with my family and friends. I enjoy swimming, cycling, and running. This will be my first year as a tutor—I hope myself and everyone I meet has a good and beneficial time. I look forward to seeing you in the Writing Center!.


Lauren T.

Lauren T. (L.T.)

Class Partnerships: BIOH 440

One of my defining characteristics as a really young kid was my RESENTMENT for broccoli, though now I've come to love vegetables. As an older kid, I loved airports and road trips, played foosball with my dad, and had rock sales with my best friend (the only customers were my little sisters). I'm still looking for my adult life. In the meantime, I'm simultaneaously laughing and crying my way through college, playing Bananagrams with my husband and our friends (buy it, if you haven't played), and adoring group exercise classes. I'm majoring in English and economics.


Maddie S.

Maddie (M.S.)

Class Partnerships: ANSC 322, WRIT 201

Hi, my name is Maddie Sholar and I am a senior in Political Science. This will be my third year at the Writing Center! When I am not working or schooling, I love backpacking in the mountains, baking, drinking coffee (it's the ritual, not the caffeine... I tell myself), and traveling. This last summer I got to travel to Europe and thru-hike the Colorado Trail, so if you ever want to talk adventure come make a session with me! 


Nas C.

Nas (N.C.)

Class Partnerships: BIOH 440, STAT 412/512

Howdy! My name is Naseeha, but I go by Nass (sadly I have never taken my horse to the old town road). I was raised in South Seattle, but half of my family is from Kenya—an easy realization once you glance at any of the walls in my bedroom which are filled with handmade animal masks, oil paintings, and banana leaf art. I'm a senior studying Chemical Engineering and hope to pursue a PhD in Nuclear Engineering. I am thrilled to be a tutor for the Writing Center and even more eager to continue improving my own skills. In my free time, I enjoy baking little treats, belting my heart out, swimming in open waters, and (quite recently) learning how to play Dungeons and Dragons!

Hi y'all! I'm Niah (N-eye-uh), and I'm a Sophomore studying Criminology and English Literature. I'm originally from Aurora, Colorado, but still have yet to try skiing or snowboarding. When I'm not in school I enjoy reading, writing, watching horror movies, and obsessing over Alice in Wonderland--and I have a soft spot for lame puns. I am so excited to be joining the amazing team in the Writing Center, and I look forward to working with you!

Natalie (N.W.)

Class Partnerships: ANSC 322, EENV 387, WRIT 201

Hello! My name is Natalie, and I am a senior studying English writing and French culture. I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and I hope to go back there one day. As far as activities and interests go, I absolutely enjoy doing nothing.

Sam (S.A.)

Class Partnerships: ANSC 322, EENV 387

Hello! My name is Sam and I am a sophomore currently studying Industrial Engineering here at MSU. I am from the small city of Santa Rosa California just north of San Francisco. When I'm not busy with school, you can find me outside, or inside, writing poetry. I always find myself in awe of how every new piece of writing I read takes on its own personality, its own voice. As a tutor at the Writing Center my hope is that I can help you to refine that voice.
