    2014-2015 Office Assistants

    Emma Delsohn

    Senior, Creative Writing


    Hi! My name's Emma Delsohn, and I'm beyond grateful to be working as an office assistant for the Writing Center this year. I grew up in the ultra-suburban city of Thousand Oaks, CA, but have been happily calling Seattle my home for the last two years. I'm a Creative Writing major, and will probably be adding an Economics minor (an academic move that continues to vex my friends and family). I also host a radio show on KSUB with my friend Laine from 8-10pm on Sunday nights. Critics across the board agree, it's a college radio phenomenon!

    When I'm not forcing my new music discoveries on my peers, I'm playing ukulele, writing, reading a book, or working on my singing. I can't wait to add to the Writing Center's already amazing staff and help all of our wonderful clients achieve their writing dreams!


    Hannah Delsohn

    Sophomore, Strategic Communications and Women and Gender Studies

    Well hello y'all! My name is Hannah Delsohn and I am currently a sophomore here at Seattle U, majoring in Strategic Communications with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. I'm originally from Thousand Oaks, California, but am glad to now be living in the lovely city of Seattle. If you can't find me at the front desk of the writing center, you'll find me playing World of Warcraft, watching American Horror Story, and/or eating macaroni and cheese. Please feel free to come say hello; the smiling faces of the Writing Center's clients make my day a whole lot brighter! ?


    Layla Fidel

    Sophomore, Marketing


    Hello! My name is Layla Fidel and I am so excited to be an Office Assistant on the Writing Center team this year. I am from the island of O'ahu in Hawai'i. I am a sophomore here at Seattle University. I am a Marketing major and Chinese minor. I love to do DIY projects, work out, and organize my calendars in my spare time. I also enjoy exploring the city with friends on the weekends. I love sushi, chai tea lattes, and macaroons. I am definitely looking forward to sharing my Hawai'i sunshine with you all.


    Lauren Lebov

    Junior, Psychology


    Hi, I'm Lauren. I'm a junior and this is my third year as an office assistant  at the Writing Center. I grew up in Sacramento, California, but Seattle definitely has my heart. When I'm not at the desk or in class, you can find me knitting hats or watching LOST re-runs. If you can't find me, I'm probably traveling or at a concert, especially if Ed Sheeran is playing! I love working the front desk, so if you're looking for writing help, come by and make an appointment!
