Avery Viehmann, Director

Writing Center Director and English Department Faculty Highline College

My current pronouns are he/him/his.

I’m originally from southern California, but I spent much of my life living all over the States until I settled in Seattle in 2011. This is my favorite place in the world, and I have the tattoo to prove it. I started teaching as a graduate student in 2007, and I got hooked on teaching and writing centers around the same time. I started working in Missouri State’s Center for Learning and Writing as a consultant, then an assistant director, and now I’m so excited to be the new director for Highline’s Writing Center. I love our diverse community at Highline, and I look forward to getting to know even more amazing people here! My hobbies include writing fiction, photography, and gaming. When not in the Writing Center, I teach English 91 and Writing and Reading for ESL.

Fun fact about me: I can have an entire conversation in memes.

Hi everyone. Welcome to the writing center. My full name is Amolrapa Sukpanut but you can call me Cat. I’m Thai so I can speak Thai and English. I’ve been Highline for 8 months but it’s just my first quarter working here. I’m an outgoing person and I don’t want to stay home much. I like to find a place to eat. Food is my life. Moreover, I’m very interested in doing all the outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking and bungee jumping. This is the one of the reasons why I chose to study here. The nature here is very beautiful except for raining in the winter. As I’ve mentioned that I love travelling, the reason behind that will be it leaves me speechless every time but it then turns me into a storyteller that l can remember forever. However, the problem with me is that I’m very clumsy so I almost come back with scars every time. I need to be more careful. My career goal will be taking care of my dad’s company. Moreover, I’m planning to open my own company, which is about travelling. These are what l’m going to do in the future. I hope you guys have wonderful time in our writing center.

Hello evyerone, this is my third quarter here at Highline and I plan to graduate after Spring 2018 after completing my Associates in Pre-Nursing degree. After that I plan to transfer to University of Washington to complete my bachelor's degree. Right now this is my first quarter at the Writing center and I recently completed my training. I am really excited to work here and have a new learning experience. I like to listen to music, dance and draw for fun. I want to be a Registered Nurse in future.
