Education and Awards

Please click here for my Curriculum Vitae (CV).

As an undergraduate student, I knew I wanted to become a librarian, so I took a variety of courses in disciplines such as English, computer science, and psychology. In my first semester of my library science program, I developed a fascination in educational technology and game-based learning and decided to hone that interest by acquiring my K-12 teaching license and school library endorsement.
