I’m an academic librarian. I earned my MLIS and MPA from the University of Washington, and my BA in English from Barnard College.
Before becoming a librarian, I worked in publishing, professional kitchens, and a nonprofit. I became a librarian to be a part of a profession that helps others, especially those who have a hard time feeling welcome in other public spaces. I love that I get to do exactly that. As a newer librarian, I’ve been really gratified to find the #critlib community, which continues to give me life! My library research interests include diversity and inclusion, critical librarianship, student outreach and engagement, library space and administration.
