    My name is Shaelene Grace Moler, I’m 23 years old, and I’m an English and Environmental Studies double-major with an emphasis in creative writing.

  • Writing Center tutor Autumn Daigle

    Autumn Daigle

    My name is Autumn Daigle, and I am 19 years old. I am earning my BA in English with an emphasis in literature, and I am getting my Outdoor Studies certificate. My lifetime goal is to be a high school English teacher and fish commercially in the summers, so I love writing as well as being outside. When I'm not in the Writing Center, you can find me outside hiking, foraging, or rock climbing. I hope to see you either in the Writing Center or somewhere outside experiencing the beauty of Juneau.

  • Francesca Johnson

    Francesca Johnson

    My name is Francesca Johnson! I'm 20 years old and majoring in marine biology with minors in mathematics and environmental science. After I graduate, I hope to do research in marine biology, but I haven't yet decided what I want to focus on yet. There are so many amazing possibilities! But I'd love to be out on some kind of ship, perhaps a sailboat, at least a portion of the time. I've been writing for a long time, and I like to help people along their writing journey; I think it's such a good way of expressing yourself! I love musicals, writing, drawing, painting, working out, reading, and singing. Come join me at the Writing Center for tutoring or a comfortable place to study!
  • Sophia Gimm

    My name is Sophia Gimm, I’m 18 years old, and I’m majoring in English with an emphasis in creative writing. I am super interested in film and television, and I hope to be a screenwriter in the future. In my free time, I love to draw and paint, listen to music, or dabble in some online shopping. I am so excited to be working in the Writing Center, and I hope to offer some help in your classes! 

  • Emily Bowman

    Emily Bowman

    My name is Emily Bowman (she/her). I am a Senior on the Juneau campus pursuing a B.A. in English with an emphasis in creative writing. I am a former Senior Editor of Tidal Echoes. I love music and often find myself jealous of Taylor Swift’s lyrical abilities. When I’m not hiding in the library with a book or working in the writing center, you can find me in the UAS Ceramics studio or on the ice at Treadwell Arena.

    Hello, my name is Catherine Miller, but everyone just calls me Catie! I'm 20 years old (21 soon) and currently a Marine Biology Major. I have always had a passion for creative writing! I transferred to UAS all the way from Indiana. After I graduate, I hope to further my education with marine conservation in graduate school. I love listening to music (K-pop, Bruno Mars, and Taylor Swift, to name a few). I also love Broadway musicals! Feel free to pop into the Writing Center to say hello anytime!
