She/her/hers

My main responsibilities are helping students, staff, and faculty at the WIlson Library information desks, providing online reference help, and coordinating middle and high school History Day field trips to Wilson Library. While in the library these students are able to use our physical and online resources to find primary and secondary sources for their projects, and experience a large, academic research library firsthand.

Want to schedule a field trip for your school to visit?

I also conduct workshops on citation managers, represent the libraries at outreach events, and provide reading recommendations through our Book Matchmaking Service.
After graduating with my Masters of Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2010 I worked at a variety of urban and suburban public libraries, doing collection management, programming, and outreach.
