About Me

I am the Assistant Director for Research and Engagement in the Baylor University Libraries. I lead, coordinate and organize the training for the team of public services staff; administrate the online tools (LibraryH3lp, LibGuides, LibAnalytics, LibCal, LibAnswers, etc.) used by the department; coordinate departmental statistics; and assist in managing the daily operations of the department. I am also the liaison librarian to several academic departments.

I got my BA in Comparative Literature from Oberlin College in Ohio in 1997 and my Master’s in Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007.

Before Baylor
For 7 years, I worked as a campus minister with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students. During that time, I was sent by InterVarsity overseas twice – to work with Studentski evandjeoski pokret in Croatia and Evandjeosko udruzenje studenata – FBiH in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. While in Sarajevo, I taught English, ran a small library, helped direct conferences, supported the national staff with things like strategic planning and fundraising and drank a lot of coffee with students.

I love music of all kinds, going to concerts, playing the guitar, reading good fiction and history, watching sci-fi television, being crafty, learning languages, web-design, photography and travel. I also love anything to do with Bosnia and the former Yugoslavia.
