Boca Raton Campus Consultants:
Hi Friends! I recently graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin where I first began my journey as a writing consultant. Now, enjoying the sunshine, the beach and the UCEW, I am working on a Masters, though my dream is to go into medicine. I absolutely love to work with all kinds of students from all different disciplines of study. APA citation style is my jam, though I guess other citation styles are cool too. Come on in and see how writing can go from a tedious chore to a wonderful adventure!
Hello, fellow students. I have broad interdisciplinary experience in the social sciences, including a masters in communication, and a doctorate in sociology from Boston University. So I welcome anyone working both on beginning and advanced projects in any of the social sciences. In addition to scholarly research, I have also written fiction, poetry, and screen and stage plays (and even written a song or two!). But my first love (well, aside from my family) is barber shop harmony. I could sing it all day. I hope to work with you soon.
Hi! My name is Ashley. I’m an MA student studying English with concentrations in American Literature and Literary Theory. I recently graduated from the FAU bachelor’s program where I completed my senior thesis on Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald’s literature through critical disability studies. I also have experience and interest in editing and publishing. I was part of Coastlines, FAU’s undergraduate lit mag, for two years and was Editor-In-Chief from 2016-2017. I have always loved reading and writing and also enjoy visual art, history, music, and film. I love meeting new people and advising on any kind of writing projects. I hope to work with you soon!
Hello, my name is Austin Lang, and I'm in the Master of English program here at FAU. I love literature, brainstorming, and any papers that involve critical analysis of a text or work of art. If you've got no idea how to dissect a text, I'm your guy! I'm also pretty good with some of the more abstract challenges that come with writing, like structuring resumes for maximum impact, or figuring out how to frame a presentation.
Hello there, Owls! I am currently in my last undergraduate semester, but I completed my Associate degree in Business Administration at Miami Dade College prior to transferring to FAU. I am currently majoring in English and minoring in professional and technical writing. When I begin my graduate studies this Fall, I will be focusing primarily on English and Irish literature as well as creative writing, particularly historical fiction. I am fond of writing because it allows me to express myself with openness and curiosity without sacrificing concision and objectivity. Writing also enables me to learn from other people, topics, and situations continually and provides me with a unique platform to constructively share the knowledge I gather along the way. I have expertise in MLA citation style, but as a previous business student and manager, I also have experience with cover letters, resumes, and grants. Furthermore, as a native Spanish speaker, I can understand and assist students with increasing English writing proficiency. So! Whether you need help with fine-tuning your resume, writing an essay for your Gordon Rule course, or organizing the elements of your creative writing project, come see me, and I will be happy to help with the task at hand.
I love working with students to master the basics of writing (whether for creative projects or ENC 1101 essays), helping to develop compelling scholarship essays and applications for grad school, and helping to build confidence in writers of all skill levels. Let's talk out your ideas and use the writing process to brainstorm, outline arguments, and develop evidence to sharpen your argumentative authority and originality. Current graduate student in the Creative Writing MFA program; dual major in English Lit and History for undergrad studies. Most conversant in MLA style.
As a graduate student working on a Masters in History (having already obtained a Bachelor's in History), I am quite adept at advising any student on history essays, and similarly-structured research papers. I'm experienced with the use of Chicago style and the related Turabian style, which are often a requisite for such papers, particularly for the History Department at FAU. Additionally, I minored in Film Studies and am quite capable of advising on film papers as well. I look forward to helping students grow in their writing, and I would be happy to offer my expertise to any student, particularly history students, at FAU.
Hi there :-) My name is Danna and I am a current doctoral student at FAU. I like to read and write and would love to support you in your writing process. I can provide support with pre-writing, brainstorming, organizing, and editing. I have experience with grammar, punctuation, and thesis development. During this stage in my life, APA and I are besties so I know how to navigate and write papers in this style. (Chicago and MLA are distant friends- but we remain connected as needed). I am here to help in the best way I can, see you around!

My background is in journalism, but I've also worked in public relations and taught composition -- how to write research papers, persuasive essays and literary critiques -- as well as journalism, so I am familiar with a variety of writing assignments and styles. Whether it's a complex term paper or a brief resume, I can help you become the best writer you can be.
Hello there! I am a senior majoring in both Political Science and History and minoring in the Arabic language. I also am working on my political science honors thesis on border walls and rebel groups in India. I am more than happy to work with everyone on anything, but am best at research in my majors, including brainstorming, designing projects, thinking through arguments, structuring and organizing papers, using and citing evidence, and the Chicago Style and APA citation styles. When I am not doing school work or consulting at the writing center, I love to watch horror movies and go to local music shows. I hope to see you soon!
Hello FAU students! I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame (Go Irish!), and I also hold a master’s degree from the University of Georgia. I have published two novels in the young adult genre, which both won gold medals in the Florida Book Awards. I will help you with thesis development, the logical organization of your essay, and writing a strong conclusion. If you would like help in making your prose concise, cogent, and captivating, come and see me.
Julie is a fan of MLA. With experience teaching College Writing, she especially loves working with students in ENC1101 and 1102.

Hey! How are you? If you have made it this far down the list, I am impressed. As far as consulting goes, I am very capable in many areas. In particular, I am an English major who is phenomenal at writing papers and is just as capable at helping you with yours.

Whether you need help with issues like essay construction and thesis development, or any of the many smaller things that you need for your work, I can absolutely help you.
Why is writing so difficult? As writers we often do not know where to start and we can feel lost and confused. I can help you with the various areas in the writing process. Bring in your prompt, materials, and let’s get started! I am familiar with various brainstorming and prewriting techniques which will help you formulate your ideas. Additionally, I am a stickler for a good thesis statement. I enjoy working through the thesis writing process to create a well-developed statement for your paper. Furthermore, I have experience in writing within history and am very familiar with primary sources, historical texts, and Chicago citation. I encourage you to come in and see what the UCEW can assist you with!
Hi all! I have a bachelor’s in theatre and minor in literature from the University of Central Florida, and my debut romance novel will be published soon! I can help students writing in all styles, but I am most proficient in MLA.

Hi, I am glad that you are looking for a writing consultant today! I am a graduate student in the College of Education, just about to complete my Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction and I teach a couple of classes here at FAU as an adjunct instructor. I also was an elementary school teacher for about fifteen years, so I have worked with many levels of writing development. To me, it is all about meeting the writer where they are at the moment and working forward from there. My background also includes a bachelor’s degree in biology which I did not put to work, but it provides me with the vocabulary to comfortably read within the sciences. I look forward to working with many of you this semester!
