Introduction

I've been a librarian since 2016 and worked at UW Tacoma since 2018. As UWT's Instructional Design Librarian, I focus on supporting student learning with effective, engaging, and inclusive lessons and activities.

In addition to being a UW Tacoma alumna, my previous work includes stints as a reporter, bookseller, barista, and fact-checker. I use she/her/hers pronouns.

My subject areas include:
