Introduction

As UWT's Instructional Design Librarian, I focus on supporting student learning with effective, engaging, and inclusive lessons and activities. This could include providing recommendations for teaching tools and technologies, consulting on pedagogy or assignment design, assisting with creating online learning objects, and more. I can also provide research consultations and support for students, faculty, and staff in my liaison areas (linked below).

In addition to being a UWT alumna, my past work includes stints as a barista, bookseller, journalist, and fact checker.

My subject areas include:
