I am currently employed as an Education Librarian. In addition to supporting the teacher education program, I support student success and retention through outreach and professional development, with a focus on at-risk populations.
As an information professional focusing on academic librarianship through a critical lens, my parallel research interests include community and sociocultural informatics, education and literacies, critical race theory, gender studies, and African American studies.
I completed my graduate degree in Library and Information Science in Jan 2015. From August 2015-June 2016, I was employed as a Resident Librarian, which provided an overview of academic libraries through three main departments: technical services, research and instruction, and archives and special collections.
A few fun facts: I LOVE genealogy (you can check out my blog here), reading, writing, and research. I adore fresh fruit and finding creative ways to weave my research interests into my career pursuits.
