I’m very excited to be one of the Chapter Liaisons and help connect members of ArLiSNAP to the ARLIS/NA regional chapters. I’ve enjoyed being active in the Northern California ARLIS chapter and was really inspired to get involved with ArLiSNAP and the greater ARLIS community after attending this year’s conference in New Orleans.
If all goes well, I’ll be graduating this May with a MLIS degree from San Jose State University. I currently work in the Materials Library at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco where I’m responsible for acquisitions, cataloging and reference. I love working in an academic art library environment and am excited to continue my career in arts librarianship.
Speaking of art, my background is in visual art and I have a BFA from the University of New Mexico. As an undergraduate I primarily focused on intaglio printmaking. Since then I’ve been busy with screen printing, drawing, photography, experimental music and sound art.
I’m thrilled to be a part of the ArLiSNAP community and help support each other as we build our professional careers!
