I have been a librarian since 2008. I have worked at the University of Miami, University of Chicago, SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Baylor University. I specialize in health and life sciences and have worked in clinical, basic, translational and allied health science programs. My interests include expanding diversity in libraries, expanding health care to those who do not have it and endometriosis research.
