I received a B.A. in Comparative Literature from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2003. I earned my Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University in 2011.

Professional Background

Prior to joining the Polk Library team, I worked as a Reference and Instruction Librarian at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California, and taught an online course in Information Fluency and Academic Integrity for undergraduate students at Brandman University. I am a member of the Omega Chapter of Beta Phi Mu, the International Library & Information Studies Honor Society.

University and Community Involvement

As the Online Learning Librarian here at Polk, I support online learners and instructors, and also provide reference assistance, library instruction and research support to on-campus students and faculty. I am currently serving as an Academic Staff representative on the Inclusive Excellence Council, the COLS Equity, Diversity, and Inclusive Climate Committee, and the Segregated Fees Committee.
