My name is Jenelle M. Dembsey (pronounced “dem-see”), but I prefer to be cited as J. M. Dembsey. The purpose of this site is to share my work for the benefit of other writing center consultants and administrators. I believe information should be available and accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability to attend conferences or purchase journals.
Please email me (dembsejm@MiamiOH.edu) if you have questions about my work or my center or if I can make anything on this site more accessible.
Background and Interests
I’ve worked in writing centers since 2010, as an undergraduate consultant, graduate assistant, and now full-time administrative staff. I specialize in online writing centers (both asynchronous and synchronous), and I’ve been working with online consulting programs since 2012. I co-coordinate the Online Writing Centers Community to establish online writing centers as an area of study. I also study accessibility and Universal Design.
Currently, I am the Coordinator for Technology and Accessibility at the Howe Center for Writing Excellence (HCWE) at Miami University. I co-developed our online consulting services in Fall 2015 and continue to coordinate online writing appointments, train online consultants, and collaborate with online faculty. I also edit our website content and support the HCWE and faculty in accessible document design.
