Teaching is the hardest and most rewarding thing I've ever done. I'm always learning and am forever enriched through relationships with my students.  If you are a student reading my website, please know you've got an advocate and a teammate in me for as long as you need and want it. If you're a former student*, I'd love to know how your life is unfolding and what's up for you.

* Defined broadly: ILEADERs, INFO undergrads, MLIS-ers, museology grad students, participants in online experiments, workshops, panels, etc.

I am a teaching assistant at the University of Washington's iSchool. One of my favorite roles as TA is working with MLIS graduate students on their Capstone projects. I also enjoy teaching Design Thinking for Informatics undergrads. 

In the summer of 2015, I co-hosted Museum Camp at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History with Nina Simon. The theme of camp was space-making and we created this together. It was so hard to do and so worth it.


For six years, I collaborated with the State Library of Illinois to work with librarians across the state to support them in risk-taking and change-making through ILEADUSA. It was some of the most rewarding work of my life.
