Hiya! I'm from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, which is equally far away from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. At this stage in the game, I'm a decided English major and a potential Russian major/minor. I am here to lend a patient ear, bring out your strengths and creativity as a writer, and break down your latest stressful essay into manageable steps. I enjoy ballet, tap, frisbee, comedy improv, being employed, and getting caught in the rain (although I've never had a pina colada). I look forward to learning with you!

Besides writing and reading in what little free time I have, I’m in a singing group, in a dance group, a tour guide, and the treasurer for the Colgate Hillel. My editing skills stem from helping my younger sister and friends with their various essays, so I’ve worked with all sorts of different writers before. My writing and editing experience ranges from scientific research papers to analytical essays, so I’m happy to help with any type of writing, at any stage!

I especially enjoy brainstorming ideas for early drafts, but I’d be happy to help at any stage in the writing process.
