Job Title: Outreach and Student Engagement Librarian

How long have you been a member of ULS?

For about 3-4 years

What or who inspires your work?

I’m most inspired by the work that my other outreach/engagement colleagues are doing. Student feedback and gratitude drives me to continue to find ways to support students and make them feel welcome.

What most excites you about academic librarianship?

I love working with college students. They grow, learn, and change so much in their time on campus and it’s wonderful to build relationships with them. I absolutely get my energy from working with students to plan events or handing out treats during finals.

What exciting or interesting project are you working on right now?

I am the most excited about the collaborations I have with our Student Health and Wellness department on campus. We are currently working on a plan to incorporate more wellness support and promotion into the library.

What do you do for fun?

I teach a class on gender and sexuality once a year, I knit and run, and try to be engaged with my local community.
