Hello from your friendly neighborhood librarian.

I (she/hers), am a Latinx first generation college student, a tenured Research and Instruction Librarian, and the Instruction Coordinator for the College of Charleston Libraries. As an academic librarian, I am deeply passionate about information literacy and student success. I also am believer in sharing information and appreciate any opportunity to engage with others and share knowledge, skills, and information. Here you will find learning objects I have created for library instruction as well as my publications and presentations. 

“Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.”

Zora Neale Hurston

Research Interests: While my research interests are varied, I am keenly focused on information literacy instruction practices, critical librarianship, the scholarship of teaching and learning, user experience and outreach, MLIS curriculum, and cloud computing technologies. I am currently pursuing research into the intentional incorporation of compassionate instruction practices in both one-shots and credit bearing instruction.
