About Me

I am the Research Services specialist for News and Newspapers, Government Documents, and Reference.  In addition to helping students with their research needs, I plan outreach and orientation events for the Bertrand Library.     

A native of north central Pennsylvania, I attended Bucknell as an undergraduate student, majoring in mathematics and economics.  After a brief stint working for the federal government, I returned to Bucknell to earn a M.S.Ed. with a focus in college student personnel.  

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hiking, and reading/listening to fantasy and science fiction books and podcasts.
