Bio & Education
As a health sciences librarian, I provide research consultations and instruction sessions for undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students. In addition, I review and develop library resources in collaboration with library colleagues and campus partners. When developing resources, I strive to highlight underrepresented perspectives and encourage critical thinking. My areas of interest include health disparities, social determinants of health, the health of LGBTQIA+ individuals, the health of African Americans, and the history of librarianship.
Before becoming a librarian, I worked in educational administration, tutored adult literacy, and taught English to speakers of other languages. My librarianship practice is informed by all of these experiences, as well by my study of history, political science, race relations, feminism, and information literacy.
