Our consultants are experienced graduate student writers, hailing from a variety of disciplines across campus.  You can read more about each of them below.

Caelen Keenan (she/her)


I am a master’s student in the Public Health program, with a particular interest in adolescent health and preventative, community-based health programs. I grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, and earned a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Michigan. AmeriCorps service brought me to Vermont in 2012, and I have worked in the non-profit sector here ever since. Most of my focus has centered around youth development, nutrition services and education, and youth employment training. I currently work as the Youth Program Manager with Vermont Works for Women in Winooski. Outside of school and work, I love to run, farm, cook, and spend time with friends and family. Special interests: grant writing, applications, academic writing in social sciences, and offering a fresh perspective to writing pieces that are outside of my own disciplines.

Rhonda Lynn


I finished a master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language in 2019. While completing my graduate degree at the University of Nebraska Omaha, I served as a TA for the English Department, teaching Composition I and ESL Composition I. Special interests include language acquisition, language and power, rhetoric, and academic language/academic vocabulary acquisition for English language learners. I speak French as a second language. Personal interests include cooking/food, traveling, reading, hiking, and spending time with my dog, Zoe.

Noah Slowik (he/him)


I am an MA student in English and a graduate research assistant for the Writing in the Disciplines program. Before UVM, I was an undergraduate writing tutor at Lewis University. After completing my BA in English and Secondary Education, I continued with the Lewis University’s writing center as a graduate writing specialist. When I am not working on my thesis on posthumanism in the utopian science fiction of H. G. Wells, I enjoy ergometric rowing, hiking, and playing with my cat, Gatsby. Special writing interests include empirical research, critical theory, professional applications, and APA and MLA styles.
