I joined the LITS Research and Instructional Support team in Fall 2011. Previously I was an Information Literacy Librarian at Penn State University, and I have also worked in libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, and the North Carolina Museum of Art. I am enthusiastic about regional foods, languages, North Carolina, Rome (Italy), libraries, cheap art, sunshine, and seasons.
