Hi! My name is Josie and I am an Elementary Education major here at CSP. This is my first semester working at the Writing Center and I couldn't be more excited. I greatly enjoy helping people find their voice as a writer and express themselves through their writing. I also enjoy hiking and just enjoying nature with my dog. 


Spencer Beissel

Hello, My name is Spencer. I am majoring in English with emphasis in literature and creative writing. I am just starting at the Writing Center, but have always been very passionate about helping others in their academic endeavors. When I’m not spending time with my fiance, I’m usually reading, playing video games, or building something while listening to a wide variety of music. I am looking forward to being of service to anyone seeking help as a writer.

My passions and hobbies include fishing, hiking, traveling, reading and writing.
