Angie has worked in education for most of her not so young life. She has worked her way through community college attending here at VUJ. Pushing onward, she completed two bachelor's degrees at Oakland City University, and a Master's Degree from the University of Evansville. As you can tell, she loves acedemia and it made perfect sense to work in the higher education field. You can find her in the ASC if you need assistance with Study Skills, Computers, Communication, testing, advising, are a student in her classes, and pretty much anything that you have questions about.
Gaylene spent her teaching career working in four states with students ranging in age from pre-school to adult. Though retired, she fills her time with a multitude of volunteer opportunities, traveling, tennis, pickleball, volleyball, hiking, eating chocolate, and, of course, being a part of the ASC. She enjoys working with the students at VUJ in Math, English, and Study Skills. Her hope is to help them develop skills that will be valuable not only in their coursework, but also in their lifelong learning journey. If she could have one superpower, it would be time-travel because, "Just think how many more interesting places there are to see! And, how cool would it be to witness historical events as they happen!"
Jessica is an Alabama native who, inexplicably, doesn't have a Southern accent. She recently graduated with her M. A. in English from the University of Louisville and now lives in Jasper with her husband, their cat, and their dog. While she loves to collaborate with students on writing projects, job applications, and resumes, you should also drop by to talk to her about Public Speaking, Psychology, Anatomy & Physiology, Basic Math, or Study Skills. If she could have any super power, she would choose telekinesis.
Marilyn played Division I basketball while she earned a Bachelor's Degree in BIology at the University of Louisville. She also holds a Master's Degree from Western Kentucky University. She has worked in the public sector as well as in education throughout her career. Her teaching career includes stints at public and private schools in three different states. Marilyn enjoys spending her free time with her family and friends, walking her energetic beagle dogs, and experiencing nature.
Maryla has been a VUJ tutor for over 20 years, and has used computers since before there were PCs. Coming from the East Coast, she appreciates Southern Indiana's mild climate and friendly people. As a sculptor and jewelry artist, she is a creative problem solver. She can help you with Accounting, Business Math, Computers, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Programming, Web Page Design, and most of whatever else comes up. "Keep smiling! It makes people wonder what you've been up to."
