Information Desk and Assets Specialist in Library

My love for libraries had stemmed from my local public library outreach programs as a child, and the rest was history.  I found myself in a library as a student employee in my undergrad, and later in the public library sector for a brief time.  My background in librarianship includes collection development, technical writing, cataloging, and technical services. I am interested in collection development that centers around diversity and inclusion. I am so happy I'm back in an academic library mentoring and managing student employees.  I am an MLIS candidate with an intended graduation date of Spring 2022.

Outside of Gustavus I am serving as a co-convener of Racial Ethnic Disparities Workgroup (MDH).
