Ms. Phillips, a female 20-year old college student, is the niece and former teaching assistant of Mrs. Godfrey. When Nate Wright first saw her, he immediately became in love with her (which she became aware of) and attempted to become in a relationship with her, which failed. She may or may not be related to Lindsay Phillips because Lincoln Peirce has never confirmed this.
However, when Nate found out that Ms. Phillips is related to his most hated teacher, Clara Godfrey, he stopped liking her, and stopped paying attention to her.
She appeared in Big Nate comics from March 20, 2006 to April 1, 2006.
