About Me

As Assessment Librarian at Albert S. Cook Library I promote curiosity when asking questions about the way our services, systems, spaces, and collections support students, faculty, staff, and library community members. This inquiry-based approach should be used to make decisions and promote a user-centered approach to the library’s work.

In my previous role as Learning Technologies Librarian, I supported educational technology initiatives that shape how library personnel provide in-person, online, and blended information literacy instruction and research assistance. I believe in using a strong foundation of evidence-based practice, learning theory application, and technical knowledge to evaluate, select, and apply technology to address teaching and learning challenges.

As an academic research and instruction librarian, I enjoy helping students develop information skills necessary for lifelong learning. Whether in the classroom or consulting one-on-one with student researchers, I see librarians as guides for students as they engage with an increasingly complex information environment. In particular, I serve as liaison to the Department of Psychology.

Much of my scholarly work focuses on technology, leadership, and change in academic libraries. I am passionate about professional development that helps academic library personnel integrate evidence-based practice, instructional technology, and learning theory into their day-to-day work. These interests also drive my work as a doctoral student pursuing an Ed.D. in Instructional Technology from Towson University.

I have also been involved with the Maryland Library Association and ACRL-MD since 2012. Within ACRL-MD, I served as secretary from 2015-2016 and vice president/president elect from 2018-2019. I am the current ACRL-MD president for 2019 - 2020. I hope you'll visit the ACRL-MD blog to learn more about our division!
