Instruction/First Year Experience Librarian

About Me


Kia ora!  I was born in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, New Zealand); and am Ngāti Paoa Māori.  My academic credentials include a BA in Social Sciences from Auckland University of Technology, and a Master of Library & Information Science from the University of Washington Information School.

Work

As the Instruction/First Year Experience Librarian, I help welcome freshman and transfer students to Gleeson Library, and connect them with our people, services, and materials.  I also teach information literacy classes for undergraduates; and serve as the liaison librarian for Sociology and Critical Diversity Studies.

As a first-generation scholar myself, I can relate to the expectations and challenges which are part of participating in a college setting for the first time.  If you are experiencing precarity, I encourage you to explore resources including the USF Food Pantry, Gender Affirming Clothing Closet (for transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming students), or Student Services

Interests

My research interests include examining the diversity "pipeline" and curriculum within library & information science; and Indigenous information practices such as data sovereignty.
