I am a cisgender white woman from a middle class background, and these privileges impact how I experience the world. I strive to be inclusive in my teaching, and I am learning to think critically about my privileges, assumptions, and implicit biases so I can better understand and support the needs of students, faculty, and staff.
I have undergone SafeZone, Mental Health First Aid, and Haven training at UNC to help me better provide support for LGBTQIA+ individuals, people developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis, and those who have experienced sexual assault, interpersonal violence, and/or stalking. To learn about resources to support you at UNC or to sign up for these trainings, visit safe.unc.edu or the School of Social Work's Mental Health First Aid website.
I am a librarian who helps clinical teams find the best resources to inform their clinical policies and practices. As a kid, I wanted to be a detective because I loved finding evidence and solving mysteries, and in college, I learned I had a gift for helping others find articles for their papers, projects, and work. Now I am here to help you find evidence to answer questions about clinical care!
I support clinical groups by performing searches and providing lists of relevant articles, building search strategies, designing and running systematic reviews, and teaching people how to search- just contact me and let me know what you need help with!
I am available for consultations by appointment. Please use the button in my profile box to make your appointment. If you have questions or if you want to request a different meeting time, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with some days and times you are available so I can match up our schedules. Please plan ahead, as it is difficult for me to do last-minute appointments!
