I have worked as a reference and instruction librarian here in Southern California and abroad in Argentina since 1997. I joined the Coastline library team in 2018, where we undertake the crucial role of facilitating access, discovery, and dissemination of resources promoting academic exploration and scholarship. I also have experience teaching information literacy courses in a variety of modalities. I enjoy assisting students, faculty, and staff in discovering and using the resources that best service their needs.

I look forward to providing continued support in your academic endeavors.
