The Writing Center welcomes students who are writing papers for courses in any discipline. Writing Assistants (WAs) represent a variety of majors & minors and core courses; each WA posts a list of his or her courses and professors so a student can sign up for an appointment with the WA who is the best voice-of-experience for that course and writing assignment. Appointments must be made 24 hours in advance at https://ashland.mywconline.com by selecting an available time on a WA’s schedule.

Ally Massimi

UWC Massimi pic Hi there! My name is Ally Massimi and I am a senior Dietetics major here at Ashland. This is also my third year as a Writing Assistant at AU. I love helping people and I love writing! I’m involved in various different organizations where I have been lucky enough to showcase my passions. For example, I am the editor for Nutrition in the News, which is the Nutrition Newsletter that the Dietetics Department is in charge of producing in order to educate our fellow students about nutrition. Besides that, I also write for a company called GenHERation, where I interview and collaborate with incredible women all over the country in order to tell their stories and share their advice with our audience (high school and college women). I was lucky enough to travel with that company to San Francisco, CA this summer where I interacted with women executives from a variety of different companies (Facebook, Google, Twitter, Adobe, PayPal, etc.).  English has always been a favorite subject of mine, which is one of the many reasons why I am so ecstatic to be working at the Writing Studio! I particularly enjoy writing research papers (something most people dread) because I find working through the research process to completion is very rewarding.

Ashley Pavlescak

UWC Pavlescak Pic Hello, my name is Ashley Pavlescak and I am a junior at Ashland University! This will be my third semester working in the Writing Center and I could not be more excited to help out this year! I am a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society and Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in Education. I am an Early Childhood Education major, minoring in Online Teaching and Education Technology, along with earning a 4/5 Endorsement which allows me to teach any grade K-5. Teaching has always been my dream job and I cannot wait to pursue it. I was fortunate enough to be able to work in a summer reinforcement program in my hometown over the summer that provided me with even more experience in the classroom. It also provided me with even more reassurance that this is the right career for me. I am a very athletic person and love to spend my free time hanging out with friends or playing some sand or indoor volleyball. I also really enjoy reading and taking photographs. Ever since I was little I had a fascination with being behind the camera and finding the different angles and shots that could be captured with my camera. I am so excited to be a part of the Writing Center again and to be able to help out!

I am currently an active member of our Student Dietetic Association, as well as a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This past summer (2017) I was lucky enough to intern for Denny’s Product Development at their Corporate Headquarters located in Spartanburg, SC. Through my internship, I learned that I am interested in many other career paths. After graduation, I am considering applying for grad school in South Carolina for Food Science with an emphasis in Culinology! Although nutrition is my main area of study, I have always loved writing, grammar, and languages as well! This is my second year of working at the Writing Center, and I have found it to be very rewarding. Outside of class and the Writing Center, I love to travel, spend time outdoors, read, and keep an active lifestyle. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at cditurno@ashland.edu.

I am an Integrated Language Arts Education major and will be licensed to teach grades 7-12. I hope to either teach in Ohio, South Carolina or Georgia. I love to read classic literature and thrillers and enjoy watching action movies. I have traveled all over the east coast of the U.S. and have been to Canada twice, and I hope to one-day travel to other countries. On campus, I am involved in The Well, Sigma Tau Delta, Kentucky missions trip, Eli and have presented at the URCA Symposium. This is my second year in the Writing Studio, and I cannot wait to work with all of you and to help you become stronger writers.

I am actually a Virginia native and from a small town called Culpeper. A main reason why I chose to go to Ashland University is its incredible nursing program and offers Spanish for me to minor in. I am a junior this year and will be commuting to the Mansfield campus for my nursing classes. Although nursing and the Writing Center take up some of my time, I am involved in other organizations on campus. I work as a tutor for Tutoring Services, I am in the Alpha Phi sorority, climbing club, and Student Nurses Association. In my free time I like to run and climb at the rock wall. I am looking forward to another year in the Writing Center because I enjoy helping others improve their writing skills as well as encouraging them.

I have three majors in Creative Writing, English, and Public Relations & Strategic Communication. I also have a minor in Spanish. My hometown is Mansfield, Ohio, which is about fifteen minutes from campus. Therefore, I commute to and from AU. This is my first year working for the Writing Center and I cannot think of a better way to end my undergraduate studies. My dream is to become an author, which means I obviously love reading and writing. Outside of that passion, I work at a Mansfield Dairy Queen and I’ve previously interned for the Jones’ Potato Chip Company. I love watching movies, being with my dog, and spending time with family and friends. I am an old soul, a Christmas enthusiast, and a Harry Potter fanatic. I am excited to get to know you and work with you.

My majors are International Political Studies and Spanish. I love studying Latin American culture, so I went Chile in last fall and Brazil this past summer. I also taught English in Spain in summer of 2016. One of my hobbies is learning new languages, and so far I know English, Spanish, and Portuguese. I hope to learn Russian, Japanese, and Ancient Greek in the future. I hope you have a great visit!

I am an English and Creative Writing double major with a French and Business Administration double minor. I am an Ohio native and grew up in Strongsville, OH, which is less than an hour from AU. Currently I am in the AU Honors Program and this is my first year working in the Writing Center which is very exciting. My passions include reading, singing and of course writing.
