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. Any questions can be directed to Ask OASIS. 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!
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!
My name is Jessica Dixon. I live in Delaware with my daughter, a dog, three cats, and a guinea pig. I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Education in Learning, Innovation, and Instruction from Walden University. I love music, movies, reading, spending time with family and friends, and crafting/crocheting.
I currently work as a K-12 music teacher for a district in southern Delaware and have been teaching for more than 13 years. I also have a background in preschool education, which is where I started. I recently transitioned from teaching middle school band, chorus, and general music to a specialty school in our district that services students with disabilities from pre-K up to early adulthood. I am excited to start a new chapter in my music teaching career and to utilize what I have learned in my classes here at Walden University.
As an adult learner, I understand the difficulties or struggles one may face while obtaining a graduate degree in addition to working, supporting a family, and maintaining a household. I enjoy sharing the knowledge I have obtained and being a support to other adult learners. I look forward to supporting and assisting you with your writing questions during your journey here at Walden University.
