Describe yourself in three words

Quirky, creative, unconventional.

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

I have an ongoing project of listening to biographies of the American presidents in order. I like this method for learning American history. I finished James K. Polk, and now I am not able to find an audiobook about Zachary Taylor.

Describe ACRL in three words:

Fun, trustworthy, community.

What do you value about ACRL?

I think ACRL commands respect. ACRL events and communities walk a difficult line of being serious but still fun. I can relate as I personally strive to walk the line of being fun but also serious.

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

I am the embedded nursing librarian on my campus. I like to think I advocate for nurses around my library and my campus, and that I advocate for the library around my nursing school.

In your own words

An embedded librarian is a happy librarian! I think every college campus should go with this model of embedding a librarian into each school. All I do is nursing. I learn more every year to be of greater service to my students and my faculty. I scored my dream job here at USD, and I could not be happier about it!
