Meet our College Staff
Dr. Stephanie Muehlethaler
While Steph did not go to Trent, she is deeply grateful for the opportunity to be part of this transformational community. Her goal here in OC is to create, with all of your help, a space that is safe, caring, a community where you feel that you can be your whole authentic selves. From developing programing that creates connection, to providing academic supports throughout your journey, she and OC are here for you!
Steph has been a student at three different institutions; earning her BA (Psych and English) at Laurier, MA in Higher ed and Student affairs at the University of Connecticut, and Ed.D in Higher Ed Leadership at Calgary. Yes it's true, she is a bit of a nerd.
Steph loves meeting the students, staff, faculty and alumni that make up this fantastic community and is here to help however she can.
Lindsay came to Trent University in 2013 to work in the Office of Student Affairs running leadership development programming for students. Since then, she has worked in various roles supporting students across campus. While working at Trent, Lindsay completed her Master of Education in Counselling Psychology from the University of Toronto. I her spare time she loves to listen to audio books and podcasts. She also loves spending time outdoors camping or hiking with her dog Chuck.
One thing that Lindsay loves about her work in advising is being able to witness students learn more about themselves. University is a time when students have so many new experiences, challenges and opportunities and she feels really honored when a student invites her into their experience of self-growth and exploration.

Erin Stewart Eves
Academic Skills Instructor
Erin is a self-proclaimed Trent lifer. She came to Trent as an undergraduate student in the mid-90s and never really left. Since that time, she has earned a Bachelor of Arts in History and Canadian Studies, a Bachelor of Education, and a Masters degree in Canadian Studies and Native Studies. Following years as a research assistant and teaching assistant, Erin became an Academic Skills instructor in 2005.
Erin's role is to help you be the best student you can be. Whether you are in your first course or your last at Trent, you can talk with herabout organization or procrastination, managing your reading load, taking decent notes, or getting started on that looming paper.
Every day she learns something new from the students she meets, and is inspired by the amazing ideas of students. She is also a sports mom, nature lover, an honest realist, and footnote enthusiast.

Rachel started at Trent as an undergraduate student in 2014; part way through her studies she began working in the Office of Student Affairs in Orientation and various leadership positions. After graduation, she took post at Seneca College as a Residence Life Coordinator and returned to work in the College Office in February of 2021. She works to ensure the lights stay on, programs and events occur, and that students are all-around supported.
As the College Assistant, she is behind the scenes on many aspects of the College including the advisory council, budget spending, office operations, and more. She often helps students by being another level of triage or support in our main office, provide event planning resources and advice, or class finding and general questions (as she got lost in these hallways too!).
Outside of 9a-4pm, she loves walks with her dog Marlo, taking in local eateries, and catching up on reality tv.
