About

Over the past ten years I have gained a great deal of experience and enthusiasm for the field of Library and Information Sciences. Through serving as a circulation desk assistant during my undergraduate years at the University of Rochester and working up to my position as head student supervisor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Education library (MERIT), my involvements on “both sides of the desk” have instilled in me the need for providing diverse patrons with the necessary tools and skills to engage with library staff and resources. 

As a scholar of media literacy, I know the importance of promoting the knowledge and skills needed for engaging in the digital world is not only essential but also inevitable.  I have experience working with, and teaching others, about digital technologies to support research, data collection, teaching, and learning.
