My job is to train Iowa engineers to write and speak with clarity and insight. The Center's staff of peer consultants and professional graders will prepare you for a career in which success is measured not only by your technical skill set but by the quality of your reports, presentations, and yes--even e-mails. I work closely with faculty to deliver writing-intensive assignments across the curriculum, and to provide detailed and constructive feedback to hundreds of students each semester. The Hanson CTC is a friendly place to visit; we will go the extra mile to ensure that you leave our office feeling more confident in your ability to express your expertise. And did I fail to mention the free candy?

Though not a native Iowan (I grew up in New York City and also spent several years in Seattle), I have grown fond of Iowa City, its often "exciting" weather, and its ever-increasing diversity.
