Background

A 2009 graduate of Aquinas College, I majored in History with a minor in Writing. Following undergraduate I served as a Graduate Archivist at the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center in Chadron, Nebraska, where I was in charge of organizing and developing the "Dr. Rolland Dewing Wounded Knee II Collection." I also spent two years writing a Thesis (eternally unfinished) examining American Catholic missionary magazines as objects of colonial discourse. Prior to joining Library Operations, I spent some time south of the border in Bowling Green, Ohio, where  I worked in various customer service positions and as a Community Organizer in the 2012 Presidential Election. A life-long gamer, I have also had the privilege of penning Editorials and Reviews for various video game websites.

Responsibilities

As a late night technician with the Duderstadt Center, I work with a team of fellow staff members to ensure that Duderstadt facilities continue to be available to students and faculty late into the evening. I assist in the maintanence of the Information Desk (located on the first floor), as well as reporting on the functionality of copiers, printers, and computers used by patrons. I also handle the Duderstadt Center Lost and Found, ensuring the regular processing of items within it and working hard to reunite patrons with their lost items. Naturally, customer service is also a major part of my responsibilites in the course of my duties.
