Catalog Librarian

Howard-Tilton Memorial Library


My husband and I moved to New Orleans, a city we have visited at least a dozen times over the years, so I could start my Catalog Librarian career at TUL’s Technical Services Department in November 2022.  I earned my MLIS from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in May 2022, with a focus on information organization and reference services.  I also have over a decade of experience working at large university libraries, so I am happy to have the opportunity to catalog various resources in an academic setting.  In my spare time, I enjoy fiber arts (knitting, crochet, sewing), landscape watercolor painting, and hunting in quaint antique shops for treasures to use in mixed media art pieces.
