Coming from a background of math and humanities I started my library career at a community college library in the Chicago suburbs before joining UIC in 2013. I received my MLIS from Dominican University in 2009.
As the Liaison to the Life and Earth Sciences I connect science faculty and students to resources and provide reference and instruction in a variety of disciplines online and at Daley Library.
