Info Resources Assistant Senior


"I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book." ~J.K. Rowling


As an Information Resources Assistant Senior I divide my time between the Hatcher Graduate Library Circulation department and Hatcher Gallery Events & Exhibits. As a part of the Circulation team I work to respond to patrons needs, improve customer service, supervise student workers and manage the carrel system for the library. I also take on special projects across the library and serve on several committees.

If you are looking for information on the Hatcher Gallery please contact: galleryreservations@umich.edu. We will work with you to plan your next event and/or exhibit.

If you are looking for information on Therapy Dogs in the Library please contact me directly. The biannual Therapy Dogs event will run every April and December during finals week in Shapiro Undergraduate Library. You can read about the Therapy Dogs program by going here.

If you are looking for book recommendations look for my posts on the library blog, Lost in the Stacks. I share my favorite finds from the libraries collections.


Previously, I was a Coffee Barista and Evening Supervisor at Mujo Cafe in Ann Arbor. During that time I learned the importance of mastering customer service and how to make a perfect cappuccino. I completed my BA in English from Eastern Michigan University in 2007. In November 2010 I was hired in at U-M Library at the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library. I moved to Hatcher Graduate Library in January 2014. I have also provided support for the Music Library, Fine Arts and Shapiro Undergraduate Library.
