Dr. Maggie Herb
Maggie Herb, who was once told by an English teacher that she had a "fundamental problem with semicolons," is the director of the Writing Center and a lecturer in the Department of English. She is a recent transplant from Western Pennsylvania and therefore finds Central Florida equal parts beautiful and weird. Maggie has a Ph.D. in composition and T.E.S.O.L. from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, her dissertation focusing on the narratives of writing center tutors and the writers with whom they work. She is a contributor to Before and After the Tutorial: Writing Centers and Institutional Relationships (Hampton Press, 2011). She feels incredibly honored that her job involves working with peer tutors and reading the words of emergent writers.
