Her Master of Arts is in English with an emphasis in composition and rhetoric and her Master of Library and Information Science is in academic librarianship—both from The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. In 2006, she graduated from BYUH with a Bachelor of Arts in English and returned to campus to teach in the English Program as an adjunct faculty member in 2009. In January 2022, she was hired as a full-time faculty member and librarian, where she gets to alternate between teaching a section of ENG 101 or Children’s Literature for Elementary Schools each semester. She is the Book Review Editor for The International Journal of Inclusion, Diversity, & Information and the Hawai‘i Library Association secretary. She is also a member of the American Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Roundtable Membership Committee, executive board member for the national Lifelong Information Literacy Librarians group, and the BYUH Embody Love Club advisor. Currently, she has been appointed co-chair of the BYUH Undergrad Research Conference and serves on the OpenEd Conference planning committee. Her research and publications focus on either mindfulness in the writing process, social media, Open Educational Resources, or academic librarianship. In addition to being a past Shaw Award Fellow, Edward D. Smith Center for Learning & Teaching Fellow and interim associate director, and president recipient of the 2021 American Library Association Student Chapter of the Year Award, her fondest honor to date is getting to raise four beautiful children in partnership with her husband in the most beautiful place on planet earth.
