We recently asked her a few questions:

What is your position title and what is your interest in libraries?

Education and Reference Assistant, my interest in libraries is the constant learning and helping others learn

What do you like most about it so far?

The enthusiasm of learning as well as offering opportunities to learn and participate in projects.

What is your educational background?

My background is in Biology and American Studies. I attended the University of New Mexico for both of my undergraduate degrees and currently at DU for my masters.

What are some other jobs you have had?

Server, Vet Tech, Student Employee for disability organizations, Administrative Assistant for a Dental Clinic and tutor

What’s an interesting tidbit that you would like others to know about you?

I am a certified archery instructor and have instructed children with Autism

How do you spend your free time?

I read A LOT. If I’m not reading I’m bothering my cat Yuki or baking.

Is there any additional information you would like to share about yourself?

I am a book reviewer, mainly for young adult novels, because I have an addiction to literature and it can get expensive. I am a long distance runner and have done 3 half marathons (2 in NM, 1 in FL).

What do you hope to gain from being working at HSL?

I hope to gain experience in teaching, which I have never done in a formal setting. Also get to know the inner workings of a Science Library and how collaboration is done with the rest of campus.
