Bio Photo for Inez

I am a transfer student from Portland Community College and currently a junior at OSU. I have worked extensively with PowerPoint, Word, and the Google equivalents throughout my college career. I also have experience working with Prezi and have been dabbling a bit more with Excel. The one thing I regret the most throughout my college career is not asking questions and not asking for help! So I am here to encourage you to ask for help and am willing to answer questions you might have or troubles you might run into when using MS office or Google Docs, no matter how small or trivial they might seem!

Hello! My name is Haley, this is my first year at OSU. I am an English Literature and Education major. I transferred from OIT to LBCC to OSU, so here I am. During my time in these various schools, I have become very familiar with different platforms and their individual requirements. My job is to provide helpful workshops on how to utilize Excel/Sheets and help you get the most out of these platforms. I am learning Excel myself so there maybe questions that I will have to get back to you on, I will get back to you. Drop by any workshop, if the time doesn't work- we also have drop in hours. See you soon!
