Who I am
I am the First Year Experience Librarian at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I have a passion for education and life-long learning. My background is in writing and literature, so it is probably no surprise that I also love reading. (Jane Austen is bae.) Other hobbies include watching movies, cross-stitching, photography, and playing with my dogs. I also have a shameless addiction to chocolate and historical romance novels.
What I do
I work with our English composition program to promote, schedule, teach, and assess information literacy instruction. I also do outreach to First Year Seminar classes, and work to build and strengthen the Library’s relationships with first year programs across campus. My primary research interests are library instruction, specifically aimed at first-year students and first-generation students, intersectionality in fan studies, critical pedagogy in information literacy.
More information about my professional experience and education can be found on the Education & Experience page. My research, including publications and presentations, in available on the Scholarly Activities page. For sample syllabi, lesson plans, and workshops, see the Curriculum and Outreach page.
