Professional Experience

I earned a Master of Science in Information at the University of Michigan’s School of Information (UMSI) and a Master of Arts in Higher Education at the University of Michigan School of Education‘s Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education in 2012.  I’m interested in the intersection of information, communities, and higher education.

Currently I work in the Engaged Learning Office where I collaborate with external organizations, faculty, and staff to develop projects for client-based courses. I also manage community engagement high impact programs and advise student organizations that work with communities and clients.

Background

Prior to this role, I worked in the Career Development Office advising Bachelor of Science in Information students before transitioning into my current position. In my first role at UMSI, I coordinated admissions processes and planned recruiting and yield events.

In graduate school, I served as the University Library Associate (ULA) in the University of Michigan Hatcher Graduate Library and prior to returning to graduate school, I assisted Catherine Soehner, then Director of the Art, Architecture, Engineering & Science Libraries.

Before returning to U-M, I worked at a private foundation as a program assistant on an education portfolio.  Before this, I was employed by the Innocence Project in New York City where, as communications assistant, I supported a fast-paced, non-profit, pro-bono law firm Communications Department.

Prior to living in New York, I worked at the Hatcher Graduate and Shapiro Science Libraries.
