What I do
I am the Instructional Services Librarian for Kinlaw Library. I work primarily with undergraduate students both in their classes and one-on-one in the library to improve their information literacy (including research, evaluation, and critical thinking skills). Collaborating with faculty to make sure our students are getting the necessary instruction and practice with 21st century learning skills is so rewarding when I see student success. In addition to working with students, I also work on developing and using assessment tools to measure effective instruction and student information literacy skills.

What I'm reading
The Man Who Was Thursday The Talented Mr. Ripley
G. K. Chesterton Patricia Highsmith
Just for fun
When I'm not reading or hanging around Kinlaw Library, I love to play sand volleyball, swim, garden, and play games (of both the board and video variety).
