Describe yourself in three words

Earnest, creative, awkward.

What are you reading (or listening to on your mobile device)?

"Care work: Dreaming Disability Justice" by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha.

Describe ACRL in three words:

Focused, professional, established.

What do you value about ACRL?

I value ACRL's conferences as a place to share ideas with librarians in similar contexts from all over. I value ACRL's sub-sections, which allows us to carve out spaces to discuss the details of our unique job responsibilities.

What do you as an academic librarian contribute to your campus?

I work strategically within, and outside of, my library to increase the accessibility of library experiences for our students. I provide reference support, and hold workshops for students and other staff. I help build connections between faculty and the library in ways that can support their students.

In your own words

Access can mean different things to different people, at different times. I feel so lucky that my path through librarianship has allowed me to invest time and energy in thinking about and planning for accessibility. My experiences have allowed me to see how intrinsically linked access, libraries, and accessibility are.
