I received a Bachelor's degree in History from Northern Illinois University in 2007. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science in 2012.

Professional Background

I have extensive experience in both academic and public libraries. I have been a student employee in Technical Services at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois and a shelver at Northern Illinois University.  I have also worked in the circulation departments of two public libraries in the north suburbs of Chicago. I have spent the past four years managing electronic resources and interlibrary loan at Harper College.
