Her only previous professional writing experience has been writing obituaries (Yes, really!).

Louis Train – Louis is in his third year of undergraduate studies in Philosophy, English, and Writing & Rhetoric.

Emma Helfand-Green – Emma is in her second year of the Master of Public Policy program. She recently completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph, studying psychology and political science. When she is not blogging for the Family Care Office, you might find Emma working hard (or hardly working) at the Robarts Library, or spending quality time with her cat, Goose.

Katherine Clemens – Katherine is in her first year of the Master of Social Work program and plans to specialize in children and families. When she takes a break from homework, Katherine enjoys the simple things in life: good coffee, nice weather, and spending time with family and friends (animals included!).
