I've been with the University of Michigan since 2013, serving in Library Operations and handling a number of duties and projects for the Duderstadt Center. As well as my standard responsibilities, I have also volunteered on the Customer Service Committee and am currently working on my Masters of Library and Information Science from Wayne State University.
In my spare time I enjoy volunteering with a number of organizations and events. I've been on the Board of Directors for the Michigan Oral History Association and judged National History Day entrees since 2014. Since 2013 I've managed an Extra Life charity team, which has raised over $5000 for Hurley Children's Hospital in Flint, Michigan. I'm also a fan of tabletop games of all varieties (roleplaying, board, and card), and have organized leagues and tournaments for my friendly local game store.
Prior to working with the University, I worked as a Historical Photo Researcher and Graduate Archivist at the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center. I graduated from Aquinas College in 2009 with a Bachelor's in History and Writing.
As a late night technician with the Duderstadt Center, I work with fellow staff members to ensure that Duderstadt facilities continue to be available to students and faculty late into the evening. I assist in the staffing of the Information Desk as well as reporting on the functionality of copiers, printers, and computers used by patrons. I oversee the Duderstadt Center Lost and Found, ensuring the regular processing of items within it and working hard to reunite patrons with their lost items.
I have also processed Course Reserves for Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering courses, and have had the privilege of leading tours around the Duderstadt Center for the International Center Orientations.
