I grew up in Shasta Lake City, Ca and moved to the Bay Area when I transferred to UC Berkeley in 2015 to complete my Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. While in school, I focused on Medical Anthropology and Religion. My academic interests include the intersection of history, hypnosis, the Self, shamanism, possession, etc. While completing my degree, I worked on a project heavily involving the National Archives in San Bruno and fell in love with the archival and library side of academic research!
Since then, I have worked at the Folklore Archive at UC Berkeley, Academy of Art Library and then was given the opportunity to join USF’s Gleeson Library in May 2018 as the Library Assistant for Digital Projects. At Gleeson Library I oversee digitization projects including our Foghorn Newspapers and 6,000+ Master’s theses. I also help review and post Electronic Thesis and Dissertation submissions into USF’s Institutional Repository. Professionally, I am interested in issues of open access, community outreach, archives, resource sharing and academic research.
My personal interests include reading, baking, embroidery, camping, and attending museums and community events.
