Trish Serviss discovered her passion for writing education as an undergraduate writing tutor herself, an experience that propelled her entire career trajectory as first a high school English teacher and then university writing teacher and researcher. She found her way home to California and UC Davis’ University Writing Program. She participates in several collaborative research projects that study how college writing instruction and programming can better include all students, particularly first-generation college students interested in STEM majors. Trish’s goal for entry level writing programming at UCD is leveraging the ELWR as support for every student, instilling confidence and flexibility in Aggie writers. She also loves her giant, gentle dog, Goose, who is often mistaken for a small horse while walking the arboretum trail.
