Program Manager

Cheryl coordinates day-to-day operations of the McNair Program, applying professional experience as a technical writer, tutor, and professional writing teacher to plan program curriculum, teach and guide students, and manage behind the scene workflows, data, assessment, and reporting. She loves working with students and engaging in a bit of sarcastic banter. Outside of work, she and her husband have a fixer upper house with two dogs and three cats from local rescues. They spend most of their free time working on the house and caring for their pets--all of which are projects.

She also oversees Scholars' academic progress and coordinates support (tutoring, study groups) as needed. Maggie enjoys helping Scholars gain confidence in their writing abilities. When she's not working, she can either be found in the classroom as she pursues her Ph.D. in Student Affairs in Higher Education or on the track during roller derby practice.
