I serve as the Education and Curriculum Coordinator at Galter Health Sciences Library & Learning Center at Northwestern University where I design, coordinate, and deliver group user instruction in a variety of curricular environments, providing point-of-need consultation and research question follow-up, and collaboration with key constituents on research projects. I work closely with the Office of Medical Education and other programs on campus to help support the success of these programs and identify new opportunities to work together in support of students and faculty in the Feinberg School of Medicine.
