I’m currently the marketing coordinator for the Texas Digital Library, housed at the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to moving to Austin, I was the repository librarian for the University of North Texas in Denton. As a graduate library assistant, I worked with the UNT Libraries to develop a campus-wide institutional repository, UNT Scholarly Works.
I have over six years of experience in academic libraries, working on a variety of projects including the Texas Data Repository, The Portal to Texas History, UNT Scholarly Works, and the UNT Data Repository. Prior to my work as a librarian, I worked in the photography lab at Texas Woman’s University, with Honda Finance as a loan originator, and later as an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea.
Most of my spare time is spent on the computer reading articles, working on websites, learning new software, or organizing files and photographs. Whenever possible, I enjoy taking a break to play the mandolin, hike, swim, and spend time with friends and family.
