Instruction/First Year Experience Librarian

About Me

Kia ora!  I was born in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, New Zealand); and am Ngāti Paoa Māori. 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
