I am currently a Reference Librarian at Florida International University (FIU) in Miami, Florida but have spent the past three and half years as a copy cataloger. I earned my MLIS from Kent State University and hold Bachelor’s degrees from FIU in History and Art History with a certificate in European Studies.
While I was pursuing my MLIS I was named an ARL Diversity Scholar and ALA Spectrum Scholar. These two programs sparked new interests, encouraged me to dream bigger, and introduced me to a supportive community that has shaped my career path and goals. I have a wide array of interests which include social justice, LIS programs, cataloging, library administration, special collections, outreach and engagement, and mentorship—just to name a few.
On the rare occasion that I am not thinking about libraries or librarianship, I spend my time running, traveling, napping, enjoying good food, or spending time with loved ones.
