Meet Our Staff


Allison is a junior pre-nursing major from Elkridge, Maryland. Along with working at the Writing Center, she is also a university tour guide. Besides being a huge Washington Capitals fan, her hobbies include playing hockey and soccer, photography, traveling, and listening to music.
Emily-portrait Emily graduated from SU in May 2017 with a B.A. in Communication Arts- Journalism/Public Relations and a B.A. in English- Creative Writing/TESOL. She worked here during her time as an undergrad and has returned for her gap year before graduate school. Emily dreams of being Lyanna Mormont when she grows up, but realistically knows she will probably end up going into publishing. When she isn't in the UWC, Emily can be found indulging in sour gummy worms and Pinot Noir while watching the Harry Potter​ movies with Ivan, her one-eyed cat. Emily's passions include making and eating pasta, pretending she knows a lot about wine, and swooning over British actors. 
Shannon is a junior from Carroll County, Maryland. Majoring in Communication Arts, she hopes to one day be an event planner (if she doesn't change her mind 100 more times) and travel both the country and the world. Shannon is also a tour guide here at SU, and a sister of Phi Mu. In her free time, she likes to act like she can dance, eat ice cream, and pretend she doesn't have homework to do.


Mikayla Kayla is a junior majoring in Mathematics Secondary Education. Ever since she was a child, she knew Salisbury University was the college that she would attend. She spends every free moment she has napping, binge-watching Netflix, and/or eating. She calls Southern Maryland her home, usually because most people are not familiar with Calvert County. She knows just about every word to every country song, especially the ones by Kenny Chesney.



Gayle Metzger is the Assistant Director of the University Writing Center. She earned her Master of Arts degree in composition and rhetoric from SU in 2015. She first got involved in writing center work as an undergraduate peer consultant. She is an avid reader, and her Kindle is probably her most prized possession. She is also a fan of crime-drama television shows, including, but not limited to, Bones, Castle, and Criminal Minds. And, like many of the UWC staff members, she is a firm believer in the Oxford comma. 

Stephanie Davis

Stephanie Davis is the Administrative Assistant in the Writing Center. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Dance, and she aspires to one day own her own dance studio. She has a slight obsession with Pinterest and HGTV, wishes she had as much culinary know-how as the Barefoot Contessa, is a firm believer in the Oxford comma, and could watch each I Love Lucy episode a million times and laugh every single time.
