I am a second year grad student. I transferred from the University of North Dakota's program. I have a BA in psychology and philosophy from the Metropolitan State College of Denver. I have worked in several areas of mental health, including at a therapeutic preschool for behaviorally/emotionally disordered children, evaluating sex offenders for court, crisis mental health worker in hospitals, and I currently work in vocational rehab for individuals with mental illness.
I typically do not stick to one method of writing, but I always start with brainstorming and whittling down my idea once I have looked through a great deal of research. I am open to new methods for writing and organization. I have a very dry (and usually dark) sense of humor, and I love to incorporate it into work and school. I am available mostly on weekends and evenings, but I can be flexible with my schedule during the day.

I'm a first-year graduate student. My undergraduate degree is a B.A. in Psychology from Cal State LA. I'm a returning student, after many years off, and am taking my time with this degree just as I did with my undergraduate. I currently work (almost) full-time at a small art studio in Silver Spring, after having worked the last 12 years in the transportation industry. Before that, I had lots of random retail and waitressing jobs; I've been working since I was 14 years old.
My writing style is pretty flexible and mostly visual. I don't do outlines very well, as I normally have to kick ideas around in my head for a bit before I put them on paper, but I admire those who can work from them. I've been writing creatively since I was quite young, and am an avid reader when on break. I have a wicked sense of humor but am serious when I have to be and when it counts. I'm honest, but not brutally so; I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Most likely I'll be available on the weekends to meet with students that need assistance, but am willing to do what I can to help if someone needs it.

First year graduate student at Marymount University. I'm currently working in the Graduate Admissions Office as a G.A. so if you can't find me elsewhere, that's probably where I am, haha.
Academic/Work History: B.S. in Psychology and B.S. in Creative Writing (Self-Designed Major) from Centre College in Danville, KY (not really sure how I earned a Bachelor of Science for a Creative Writing major but, that's what it says on my diploma so, I'll roll with it). Post-graduation (2007), I interned with the Developmental Neuropsychology Lab at the University of Louisville. Was then hired by the Early Childhood Research Center (also University of Louisville) to work as a Research Analyst for 2 years. While there, I co-wrote parts of manuscripts, published a book review, attended and presented at various conferences, and was enrolled part-time in graduate courses (Justice Administration and Statistics). I also co-taught high-school summer courses in analytical writing and organizational skills/vocabulary building for two summers while an undergrad.
Writing Fellow Related: I've got a flexible writing style and collaboration method. I'm always looking to learn from new methods and ideas. I will be upfront with you regarding my comments, but I will be tactful about it. Respect is a big deal to me :)
Random Facts: Since it looks like I'm a total bookworm let's jazz it up a bit…I was a waitress for 5 years as well as a sports photographer. I'm also terribly accident prone, and my enthusiasm is often mistaken for being a spaz. I've got a "unique" sense of humor, but I'm serious when it counts. I love a funny story. No one has called me "Natalie" in 7 years, so if I don't respond right away, my bad…it's taking some getting used to!
