I currently work as an Undergraduate Experience Librarian at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where my primary duties are outreach, reference, library instruction, and supporting student success. I got my MLS from Indiana University in Indianapolis, and my BA in art history from San Francisco State University. When I was in library school, I was a managing editor of the Hack Library School Blog and I’m really happy to be joining the In the Library with the Lead Pipe team.
In 2014, I participated in the ALA Emerging Leaders program and the Minnesota Institute For Early Career Librarians. You could say that mentorship, and professional engagement are important things to me. I love being a librarian, and I love helping people with their information needs. My research interests include diversity and stereotypes in librarianship, playful design, and critical pedagogy in information literacy instruction.
When I’m not librarian-ing, I like hanging out with my cats, riding my bike around the city and in faraway places, and dreaming of where I want to travel to next.
