Dovie Siaway
University of California – Berkeley
Hi everyone! My name is Dovie! I'm originally from Alabama but I grew up in the Bay Area. I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2017 with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in American Studies with an emphasis in Education. (Go Bears!) While at Cal, I served as the Assistant Director of Recruitment for the Black Recruitment and Retention Center and joined Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I have worked in education for over 10 years from tutoring/advising jobs to recruitment work for Cal to managing an Education & Careers department at a nonprofit. I love advising high school students and what I've learned over the years is that there are many pathways for students to achieve their academic goals. As an advisor, I enjoy helping students paint the full picture of themselves through their essays and assisting with career/major exploration. In my every day life I enjoy listening to music, watching movies, and reading. My latest read was "All About Love" by bell hooks which I highly recommend! I look forward to working with you to achieve your college goals!

Laura Maclay
Wellesley College
I graduated with degrees in Political Science and English (although my academic interests span farther than these two - at one point I was deciding between 4 majors!) from Wellesley College. At Wellesley, I was a campus-wide writing tutor starting my sophomore year, and held a few other roles (editor-in-chief of the Wellesley Review, a public speaking tutor, debater, and a First Year Mentor). Nowadays, I currently manage the healthcare division of a consulting firm, and spend my free time reading thought-pieces and non-fiction books, along with pursuing a new passion for hip hop dancing!
