Hello! I’ve been a librarian at Radford for over 10 years. I work at the Research Help Desk in McConnell Library as well as a professor in the library instruction program, delivering workshops on a variety of topics to help students have the tools needed to complete course-integrated research assignments.

As a daily Wordle player, my favorite thing about my job is that I get to work on new puzzles every day. I love to hear about what you are interested in and help connect you with credible information on your topic. In my role as an Associate Professor in the Library Faculty here at Radford University, I am the chair of the Faculty Outreach and Library Facilities committees for McConnell Library, a member of our Library Personnel Committee, as well as our representative in Faculty Senate, the Voter Friendly Campus initiative, and The Citizen-Leader Program. I am involved in efforts to make course materials more affordable through Open Educational Resources (OER) and low and no-cost initiatives.

My publications can be found on my Google Scholar profile.
