Rosemarie Menager, Ed.D. is a psychology professor at Foothill College. A graduate of USC's Rossiter School of Education Human Performance Technology cohort, she did her dissertation on student success in online learning. After discovering that many of her students were inadvertently plagiarizing because they lacked a clear understanding of how to correctly cite their work, Dr. Menager created "Educate First and Enforce Next," an educational approach to preventing plagiarism that informs the content of this Quick Coach Guide. Dr. Menager has also served as a consultant for the "Stressed-Out Student (SOS)" conference at Stanford University and is currently working on a plagiarism intervention for students in grades K-12. In her spare time, Dr. Menager is a mom, impressionist oil painter, and member of a sheriff's mounted search and rescue group.

Lyn Paulos is an assistive technology lab technician at Santa Barbara City College. She is currently completing her B.S. in psychology and will be pursuing an M.S. through the University of Phoenix. Ms. Paulos currently manages a state-of-the art adaptive technology learning lab at Santa Barbara City College. A frequent presenter at technology conferences and passionate advocate for student academic integrity, she has also authored an online tutorial on plagiarism prevention and education entitled "Authoring Your Own Work." In her extracurricular life, Ms. Paulos is a celebrated lampwork glass artist whose creations are collected internationally.
