I started working at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in 2008. I am the librarian for Writing Studies, First Year Writing, the University Honors Program and support Orientation and Undergraduate services. I teach Think Like a Researcher workshops, CSE 1001: First Year Experience and CLA 1002: First Year Experience, Research Spotlight. Learn more about the Library Data and Student Success project.
