Who We Are

Having trouble with a case analysis? A presentation deck? Need to talk through where to start on a paper or materials for a job application?  The McDonough School of Business Writing and Communications Center is here to help! 

Founded in Fall 2019, the MSBWCC offers free peer tutoring services for all MSB students. Writing Fellows are available to support you with essays, research papers or any other type of class writing assignments at any stage of the writing process. We are available to help with any and all assignments.


Alex Hornick

Alexandra “Alex” Hornick is a senior in the McDonough School of Business majoring in Management, Leadership & Innovation and minoring in Jewish Civilization. Outside of the classroom, she works at the MSB Tech Center, is a BUILD coordinator, and is the co-founder and head of the MSB Writing & Communications Center. She specializes in case competition writing, general business writing, and creative writing and can help at any stage of the writing process. In her spare time, Alex enjoys watching Seinfeld, listening to Janis Joplin records, and snowboarding. You can often find her walking around campus with a Lime La Croix.

Kate Tavella

Kate Tavella is a sophomore studying Business and Global Affairs in the MSB and SFS. Originally from Northern California, Kate came to Georgetown to explore DC, run Track and Cross Country, and study foreign affairs in the hub of politics. A lover of conversation, Kate enjoys talking through the brainstorming and outlining process, as well as adding flair to writing through diction. She will be working in the MSB Writing Center, specializing in business writing. When she is not drinking coffee in Grounded while studying with her peers, you can find her running all over DC or teaching middle school students through the Grassroot Project. 

Lindsey Golotko

Lindsey is a junior in the McDonough School of Business, majoring in Finance and Management. She is originally from Freehold, New Jersey, which is the hometown of Bruce Springsteen. Outside of the classroom, Lindsey is the Director of Digital Media for GAAP, a member of Hilltop Consultants, and a peer ambassador for the McDonough School of Business. She enjoys all types of writing, but has a focus on whitepapers, consulting decks, and other business genres. In her free time, Lindsey loves exploring DC and reading her favorite comedians’ memoirs, especially Mindy Kaling.

Matteo Palacardo

Matteo Palacardo is a Junior in the McDonough School of Business studying Marketing and Finance, with a minor in Entrepreneurship. He’s especially interested in the subconscious implications behind first impressions, and how it’s manifested through marketing products, ideas, or even people. A proud son of two Italian immigrants, he grew up in the concrete jungle where dreams are made of. He likes working with any kind of writing but he has a soft spot for creative writing and business proposals. He’s also fluent in Italian (and average at Spanish), so he would love to work with any non-native English speakers–or anyone who needs help in Italian! At Georgetown, he’s the Chief Venture Officer for the startup consulting club Georgetown Ventures, a member service representative at GUASFCU, and enjoys getting spiked on playing for the club volleyball team. He’s an avid soccer/basketball fan and could argue about New York sports forever.

Shreysi Mittal

Shreysi is a sophomore in the McDonough School of Business majoring in Finance and International Political Economy with a minor in public health. She’s from the superior (both in energy and location) half of California, NorCal, and is a typical wanna-be-edgy SF teen. She loves all writing, especially business writing, and specializes in brainstorming. Outside of the Writing Center, Shreysi is involved with Blue and Gray, Innovo Consulting, and Mock Trial. In her spare time, she’s probably learning an instrument or telling terrible jokes that only she finds funny.

Trinity Johnson

Trinity is a junior in the McDonough School of Business, majoring in Management, Leadership, and Innovation with a potential minor in Theology. She desires to edify and empower others to awaken the latent leadership qualities within themselves. She hails from Grayson, Georgia– a city about an hour outside of Atlanta. She loves reading slide decks and informative papers, and she is passionate about the editing and revising process. When she is not in class, she can be found at the MSB Tech Center solving the world’s problems one computer at a time, on Georgetown’s social media as a member of the Georgetown Storytellers Team, or in Leo’s eating vegan banana bread! She is also a small group leader for the Chi Alpha Campus Ministry.
