I’m a Master’s of Library Science student at Emporia State University. This is a hybrid distance program; the school’s in Kansas, but we take our classes in Portland and online. In addition to my work here at OHSU, I’m a reference intern at Clark College in Vancouver and do access services at the University of Oregon campus downtown. There aren’t many types of librarianship that I’m not interested in, but I especially enjoy academic work and archives.
Before I started my MLS, I earned my master’s degree in English from UO and my bachelor’s from Scripps College. Outside of work, I volunteer at a suicide hotline and write science fiction and fantasy. I’m looking forward to sharing the bizarre, intriguing, and inspiring contents of the OHSU archives here on the blog.
