As the liaison to the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, I connect students and faculty to library resources that will support their artist-scholar endeavors. I also help create programming for the library such as the Speaking of Books series.

Formerly, I worked in North Carolina and Maryland teaching high school Theatre, English, and U.S. History. My professional theatre experience includes the position of Artistic Associate at Triad Stage (NC) and dramaturgy at Theatre J (DC), Round House Theatre (MD), and Center Stage (MD).
