What I am doing now.

A proud Reference Librarian at San Diego Law Library, I am a recent graduate from iSchool at San Jose State University with my Master’s in Library and Information Science. I am passionate about writing and education, and most recently created content for the iStudent blog. I am the YouTube team leader, and our revamped channel has grown over 50% since the beginning of the pandemic. Our library has reopened recently, and we are hoping to maintain all our remote services alongside serving the public in person. Our mission is access to justice, and our COVID-19 Legal Issues web content recently received an Excellence in Community Engagement Award from the American Association of Law Libraries. I am also on the board at SANDALL, a chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries, currently serving as Secretary.

What are the most valuable skills I use in my job?

The most valuable skills I use at my job are humble leadership, technological savvy, and customer service.
