How long have you been a member of ULS?
What or who inspires your work?
Social justice—the potential for information and education to improve the lives of individuals.
What most excites you about academic librarianship?
The incredible experiences, interests, goals, and ideas our students bring to the library!
What exciting or interesting project are you working on right now?
Assessing our new curriculum for English 102: College Writing & Research. I co-wrote the curriculum with colleagues in UWM Libraries and the English Department. The course invites students to use the concepts of rhetoric and information literacy to explore issues related to living and learning in Milwaukee, and the learning outcomes so far have been inspiring!
What do you do for fun?
Doing anything that lets me see the world through my 3-year-old’s eyes brings me joy. My more adult interests include drinking iced vanilla lattes, listening to NPR and podcasts, traveling, and going to concerts.
