about me

I am an academic reference and instruction librarian, and I also develop collections for my university's Sociology, Criminal Justice, and Gender and Sexuality Studies programs. 

I'm interested in gender and race in library and information studies/sciences, critical information literacy, and feminism and (in)fertility.


I live in Southern California and enjoy being outside. I volunteer for the Joshua Tree National Park Association's Desert Institute.


I facilitate a variety of critical information literacy workshops and classes and have done so at a number of colleges and universities.

I like to create online learning objects. You can see a sample of my work at the Critical Information Literacy Laboratory for Faculty (John M. Pfau Library).

I also currently teach and am involved with the development of a first-year seminar course at California State University, San Bernardino.



scholarly work

I recently edited Topographies of Whiteness: Mapping Whiteness in Library and Information Science (Library Juice Press, 2017). See my cv (below) for a complete list of publications and conference presentations.
