Hello! I am a Librarian at Johns Hopkins University. I work mainly with graduate and doctoral students and faculty assisting them with research, research skills, academic citation, and presentations. I have also maintained a literary blog where I reviewed books and worked with authors and publishers to promote new books.
At Johns Hopkins I work with faculty and students in the following areas of study: Business, Education, Biotechnology, Museum Studies, and Engineering. I love working with such a diverse group of subjects as well as high level students because they give me such varied areas to research. No two research questions are ever the same!
I became a Librarian because I love to teach, I love to read, and I love to research. I'm an expert at both database research as well as standard internet searches. And you're just as likely to find me running them through my computer as my phone. I'm always one search away from the answer.
My love of reading led to maintaining a blog for a number of years. I focused on Young Adult, Romance, and General Fiction books; giving reviews and booktalks for the use of the general public and other librarians. I worked with a number of publishers and authors to promote new book releases. This just goes to show that my undergraduate work in literature found it's way into my semi-professional life.
I am looking for work that will complement my work as a librarian. I would love to read, write, or research. I find these tasks fulfilling in both my professional and personal life - and I would love to put my skills to work for you.
