I am currently studying towards my Master of Library and Information Studies at Western University, with an expected graduation date of September 2018. My studies have focused on public libraries and on youth services; examples of my coursework can be found in my portfolio. With a wealth of professional experience in public libraries and a particular passion for providing accessible services, I am dedicated to the promotion of knowledge and information and am looking forward to pursuing this professionally.
Prior to pursuing my MLIS, I attended Mount Allison University, graduating in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts awarded with Distinction. I majored in Classical Studies and minored in History and English, disciplines that perfected my communication and research skills. In the time between completing my BA and entering the MLIS program, I spent several years living in the United Kingdom and working as a Library Assistant.
When I'm not reading or studying, I can be found writing, drawing, travelling, and doting on my new nephew.
