About me

Currently, an Access and Information Services Librarian with Library Operations, I work closely with Library Outreach, Library Communications and Learning & Teaching.  My primary focus is specialized projects connecting young adults, undergraduate and graduate students to library services at Hatcher Graduate Library.  I also am the lead of two youth programs which include being the lead for Library Operations working with the University of Michigan Debate Summer Camp which the university houses over 100 students between the ages of 12-17 for the entire summer preparing for competition and the Washtenaw Summer Youth Employment Program which the library houses summer youth employees from the ages of 16-24 for the entire summer.    I mentor and provide youth employees with vital job and life skills that will help them move into adulthood.
