Office Location: Giovale Library 107


I have a Master's in Information and Library Science and have been working for the Giovale Library since January, 2018. Prior to earning my MLIS, I earned a BA in Sociology. I like to describe myself as "unusually loud for a librarian" and love how my role as the Outreach Librarian has led students to give me the unofficial title of "snack lady." I love working one-on-one with students, teaching information literacy sessions, and getting to think outside the box to promote the library.


When I'm not at work, I love to play pick-up soccer, take naps, and hang out with my pup, Gus. I'm on a 10 month contract which allows me and my spouse to travel the world. I love my job and I love the freedom it gives me to explore when I'm not there. I'm a candy lover and can always be found with treats at my desk such as skittles, gummy bears, or starburst. At home, I'm always snacking on Reese's with a big glass of milk. I'm always rooting for Real Salt Lake and can be found behind the south goal at every home game.
