About Me

I was born and raised in New Jersey. I am a first generation college student, and I have a BA in Behavioral Science from Drew University, a Master of Arts in Teaching, Elementary Education from Monmouth University, and a Master of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. My pronouns are she, her, hers.


I've been in my current position at USF since 2003, but began my association with Gleeson Library | Geschke Center in 1995 working in the Cataloging Department. I've also worked in the Periodicals Department at Gleeson. In my former life I was an elementary school teacher and school librarian.


My professional interests include assisting the USF community in finding, using, and understanding various kinds of information, while having a few laughs and increasing comfort levels along the way, and building community by spending time in Malloy Hall and at 101 Howard in addition to the library and at events around campus.
