I consider myself a learning professional.
Ever since my early childhood, I’ve had a strong sense of curiosity. My passion for learning, reading, research, and constant improvement have been instrumental in shaping who I am as a professional and a person. I have a strong interest in how people learn and what constitutes an effective learning experience.
Professionally, I worked in academic libraries since completing my masters degree in 2009 until 2018. My responsibilities included assisting students with reference questions, teaching research classes, directing daily workflow, participating in campus-wide committees and initiatives, serving as a liaison to academic departments, and collaborating with my team members on large-scale projects. Of all my daily undertakings, providing the highest quality services to students was the greatest source of satisfaction.
The positive experiences I had in libraries led me to discover my passion for education and inspired me to pursue a new career. In early 2016, I decided to return to school for an MA in Information & learning Technologies (Instructional Design & Adult Learning). Using the knowledge and skills I will acquire with this degree, I intend to improve my abilities as an educator and student.
