What is your job? I am a library manager in Standards Management and Assessment, where I manage quality control for processing collection items and produce and maintain authority control in the cataloging process. I also serve as the Interim Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Coordinator for the Libraries.

What book are you currently reading? The Sum of Us by Heather McGhee

What is your favorite spot in the library? The reflection room [located in 214 Cooper Library].

What’s the best thing about working for the Libraries? The best thing about working for Clemson Libraries is my colleagues. There are lots of really good people working in the Libraries.

What is one thing you wish students knew about the Libraries? ​ I wish that students knew that the Libraries wants to collaborate with them to obtain increased EDI awareness and programming, innovation, as well as a more familial Clemson community culture!
