About Me

I grew up in Napa, California, and moved to San Rafael for college. I received my undergraduate degree in art history from Dominican University. I also received my graduate degree in humanities, with an emphasis in art history, from Dominican University.


I began at Gleeson Library in Fall of 2021. As the Special Collections and University Archives Assistant, I coordinate between the offices of Digitization, Digital Collections, Special Collections, and University Archives. I also conduct research projects in response to patron questions and assist in the work of each department. Before coming to the University of San Francisco, I was the archives assistant at Dominican University for three years.


Professionally, I am passionate about history, particularly art history. That is why working with archives and special collections is such a great fit for me! Not only do I get the opportunity to work with incredible historic materials, but I also have the opportunity to help preserve it and share this history with fellow researchers! In my free time I love to watch movies, read fantasy and science fiction, do needle-art, and I love to be outside!
