Bio: If freshmen year has taught me one thing: always be yourself. My time here at Carthage has been the most enlightening experience. I came here nervous, but now I’m content with myself. AS A member of French Club and Carthage Wave, I am always immersing myself in music or culture.
Hello! I am a nursing student from Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, a small town characterized by its Fireside Theater and cow museum. Other than reading and writing, I love to draw, be active, and hang out with friends. Some fun facts about me? I am neither a dog nor a cat person - I love both!

I’m a little bit all over the place in this bio, but I’ll definitely be more focused and organized when you come into the Writing Center!
My name is Bethany and I’m double majoring in Environmental Science and Political Science. I’m a studious person, so I spend most of my time doing homework, but when I’m not doing homework I like spending time with my friends or watching Netflix. I have always been a very passionate person, and reading and writing have been important components in helping me express that passion. I’m always working to learn how to be a better writer, and over the past few years, I have developed a strong appreciation for the beauty of the writing process. As a writing tutor, I hope to help others write papers that they can be proud of.

Greetings, I am a nursing student here at Carthage. Aside from the Writing Center, which allows me to continuously grow in my writing skills, I am a part of the Carthage Treble Choir.

As a Writing Fellow, I aim to help students elaborate on their brilliant ideas and express thoughtfully on any given essay. I am also bilingual so feel free to bring in your Spanish essays!
Hi, my name is Catherine and I was born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin. I am studying psychology and criminal justice. When I am not in the Writing Center I enjoy walking down by the lake and drinking coffee—catch me in Starbucks most days. I am a self-proclaimed mac and cheese connoisseur. My favorite type of writing is creative writing, even though I find it the most difficult to craft. My favorite book is Storm and Silence by Rob Thier but I have also read every Sarah J. Maas book ever written. I am so excited to be able to assist all writers with their work, especially Western Heritage papers.
My name is Chloe, and I am a Pre-Med Neuroscience Major, minoring in Psychology here at Carthage. Even though I am a science major, I have always loved reading and writing creative works, and even found joy when constructing various papers for Western Heritage! Outside of school I love to lift weights and play volleyball, as well as travel (I have already checked Peru and Honduras off my list) and drink inhuman amounts of iced coffee - regardless of the temperature. After my time here at Carthage, I hope to attend Medical School, and pursue a career as a trauma surgeon.

I will gladly look at any cats, pictures of cats, or cat memes always, anywhere, anytime (because quite frankly, I’m a bit obsessed).

Hello, my name is Rylie. I am a Biology and Chemistry Major, though I am considering switching to a History Major. I love to read and write, though I suppose that may seem obvious considering where I now work. While I love all genres of books, I’m currently on a big fantasy kick, with my all-time favorite series being the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Besides reading and writing however, I love all types of art (though most often I dabble in watercolor and jewelry making) and going for nice long walks outside where I can think. I’ve taken and plan to take a good mix of science and humanities courses, one of my favorites so far having been my Western Heritage classes. I hope one day to either become a teacher or to work with animals.
Hello! I am majoring in English and Great Ideas. Rainy days, lighthouses, and lavender tea are some of my favorite things. I enjoy curling up with a good book, and I have an ever-growing love of writing poetry. In addition to writing, I like to play my flute and take the train to Chicago on the weekends. I love being a resource for students here at Carthage, and I want to help you wherever you are in the writing process. Homeric epics are my favorite, so I am happy to assist with all things The Odyssey and Western Heritage!
