About Me

Hello students and faculty! I'm an Instruction Librarian  here at East Los Angeles College. You'll usually find me teaching research workshops and orientations. I also help students with research assignments at the Research Help Desk.  I have a Master's degree in Library and Information Studies from UCLA and a Master's degree in English from UC Riverside. I've taught English throughout colleges in Southern California, including here at ELAC. My areas of interest are integrating Composition and Rhetoric approaches to Information Competency, interdisciplinary collaborations, and bridging academic topics with popular culture. In my free time I like to bust a move to the soundtrack of Singin' in the Rain, take long runs off the beaten path, voraciously read in busy cafes, and work with my librarian peers on zines. Come say hello and check out a book while you're at the library!
