I am a native of Arizona, born and raised in Scottsdale. I completed my undergrad at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where I double majored in History and Classics. While at UA, I worked as an archival assistant in the Special Collections library, which cemented my love of libraries and future career goals. In 2010, I moved to New York and started the dual degree program at NYU and LIU, where I completed my MLIS in May 2012. Now in my third (and final!) year at NYU, I have developed an interest in digital humanities, particularly the applications for DH in the library world. I am a current MA student in the Draper Program, and also interested in history of the book, material culture, and gender. I am currently working on projects related to the materiality of digital objects and DH tools for library instruction.
When not at school or the library, I can be found in my “other” life, working in the legal department of a human rights NGO. I enjoy knitting, reading, and hanging out with my three cats.
