About me

As the Interim Head, Social Sciences & Clark Library, I lead an interdisciplinary team of subject specialists and functional experts, part of the Research Division. As the liaison to the Dept of Communication and Media and the U-M School of Information (UMSI), I also:

  • provide reference and instruction support to UMSI and the Dept of Communication and Media
  • purchase materials supporting research in these subject areas, in addition to selecting materials related to news and general periodicals 
  • consult with faculty and students about their research or assignments
  • teach students how to effectively use library resources and services

I meet regularly with faculty and students, both graduate and undergraduate. Please feel free to email me with a question, make an appointment for a research consultation, have me visit your class regarding library research, or create a library research guide for your course. 

I have a master's degree from UMSI, and a bachelor's degree in English Literature with a minor in Policy Studies from Rice University in Houston, TX.
