My name is Jenelle M. Dembsey (pronounced “dem-see”), and my pronouns are “she, her, hers.” In day-to-day interactions, I go by Jenelle, but I prefer to be cited as J. M. Dembsey because my first name is commonly misspelled.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions about my work or if I can make anything on this site more accessible. I also welcome writing centers to contact me if they’d like to collaborate on designing or revising their online writing support services.
Background and Interests
I’ve worked in writing centers since 2010, as an undergraduate consultant, graduate assistant, and full-time administrative staff. I specialize in online writing centers (both asynchronous and synchronous), and I’ve been working with online writing support programs since 2012. I have experience managing the day-to-day operations of online writing centers, leading online consultant training, and designing online writing support programs from scratch. Most recently, I developed and led online group writing sessions for the institutional review board (IRB) application at Northcentral University.
Currently, I am the Manager for Online Learning at the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO). I also co-founded and co-coordinated the Online Writing Centers Community and am now the Founding President and Incorporator of the Online Writing Centers Association (OWCA).
