About: Meet Our Administrative Writing Assistants, Graduate Assistant, and Intern

Administrative Writing Assistants

The Administrative Writing Assistants (AWAs) interact with Walden students in the Writing Center by responding to inquiries about writing resources, grammar, APA, and other various writing topics at writingsupport@waldenu.edu. As Walden students themselves, the AWAs are enrolled in various programs and can understand the spectrum of Walden students’ writing needs and questions. Get to know the AWAs by reading more about them!

Amanda Archer

Amanda Archer

My name is Amanda Archer. I live in the Chicagoland area with my wife, Phyllis, (now legally in all 50 states) and two sons. Reid is 2-years-old and Drew is 1-year-old. They are a year and twenty days apart. They are my motivation for all that I do, and I do a lot!

I work full time for McDonald's Corporation as an Instructional Designer. I have only been in the position for about 2 months but have been in the training and development field for over 10 years now. I began my career as a teacher in early childhood, but it didn't take long for me to find my passion for adult education especially within a corporate setting. I have developed multiple new hire training programs and management development curriculums. Having the ability to impact adults and how they learn is my passion. This is part of the reason I choose to spend part of my busy schedule answering the questions students have about writing. Knowing I am helping adult learners motivates me to continue to grow and learn as well.

Hello! My name is Casey. I am originally from Oklahoma, but I’ve lived in NYC, Houston, and now reside in Dallas. I have a B.A. in History from the University of Central Oklahoma and I am working on my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling here at Walden. In addition to my work as a Writing Assistant, I work as a Youth Prevention Specialist at Recovery Resource Council in Dallas.

I love to cross-stitch, read, spend time with my wife and pups, and watch football (Boomer Sooner!).

I look forward to working with you!
