  1. Lindsey Collins

    I have always enjoyed helping my friends with their writing in my free time, so becoming a consultant at the DWOC sounded like the perfect opportunity to help even more people. Writing has always been one of my passions, and I can usually be found working in the library or reading with my stuffed Appa. I would love to help you with the formulation and creation of papers and also help with the in-depth analysis of complex literature. Outside of the DWOC I am a member of the swim team, Assistant Editor for Calliope, and I am Co-President and the PR chair for English Society. I look forward to helping you!

  2. Bariah Coursin

    Hi there! My name is Bariah Coursin (pronounced: Buh-re-uh), and I am a junior here at Mount. I am studying for a major in Human Resource Management and a minor in Leadership. I am also involved with many things on campus such as being a sister in Delta Sigma Tau, a member of Mount’s Collegiate Leadership Competition team, and as a student worker for Mount’s Integrative Core office. My love for reading and writing has been quite prevalent in my life for as long as I can remember. To me, writing and reading were always a vessel for me to escape and see life in a more interesting way. Because of this, I’ve developed a passion for helping others to understand the complex world of language arts in hopes that every person I help will see life in a more interesting way. I’m so excited to work with you and assist you in any way that I can!

  5. Chloë Holt

    Once I entered high school, I began taking writing-intensive courses that sparked my love for peer review. When I’m not at the DWOC, I can be found singing in Cantus Femina or the Concert Choir, watching a movie with my roommates, or cooking. Even if all your presentation needs is more flair, do not hesitate to make an appointment with me. I also specialize in digital projects including video and audio editing.

  6. Allie Hrovat

    I developed my love for writing and speaking, oddly, out of force; my mom would stress the importance of being able to professionally communicate. I wanted to join the DWOC so I could help others with their communications skills. I love helping with the writing process from brainstorming to final organizational touch-ups and have the most experience writing research-based papers. Here at Mount, I am in Active Minds, Peacebuilding Society, and APO. I also am a Peer Coach in Academic Support. I’m excited to work with you!

During my (rather limited) free time, I’m usually reading, hiking in the woods, or drinking my ninetieth cup of coffee.  I look forward to working with you!

  8. Nick Kovacs

    In my third year at Mount and am really starting to pursue higher-level courses in psychology.

Although I am not pursuing a major or minor in English or writing, I believe I have a lot to offer and enjoy reading and writing a great deal. In my freetime I like playing video games with my friends and, admittedly, really enjoy learning about a lot of different things. I apologize in advance for asking too many questions about the topics you may be working on when we work together, but I am excited and looking forward to working with you to become a better writer and presenter!

    Hello! I am studying to become a guidance counselor, which means I love talking to and working with people. Because I am someone who used to strongly dislike writing papers and preparing presentations, I am not afraid to admit these tasks can be overwhelming at times. As I wrote and presented more in college, my love for both grew, so I am excited to share it with you. I am also excited to assist with citations, make you feel more confident with your work, be someone to bounce ideas off of, and everything in between. Outside of the DWOC, I am a member of the women’s soccer team.
