Learner / Input / Intellection / Belief / Responsibility. INFJ.
I am an action-oriented creative thinker, with a talent for balancing the big picture with the small tasks needed to achieve it. I believe the learning should be open, engaging, playful, and responsive.
My education includes an MLIS from St. Catherine University in Saint Paul, MN, and B.A. in Spanish, global studies, and English literature from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, whose biggest claim to fame is having a giant corncob as a mascot.
My professional areas of interest include community engagement, technology training and digital inclusion, web design, website accessibility and usability, social justice, and promoting reading and lifelong learning in all forms!
I’ve worked in both public and academic libraries with a wide range of tasks, including reference and digital reference, customer service, programming, technology training, library instruction, outreach, social media, stacks maintenance, and student supervision.
Outside of the library world, I enjoy reading, running, cooking, exploring the Twin Cities, listening to MPR, getting absolutely lost on the web, and catching up with friends and family.
This site is a catch-all for the various places I create content on the web, but I blog mainly about books, libraries, technology, with occasional other content coming in. I love a good (civil) discussion, so please feel free to comment on my posts or ask me any questions.
