What I do
As one of of two librarians in the San José Campus Library, I help students with research, give library instruction and keep our little library humming.

About me
I’m a Bay Area native who got to go to grade school in India, high school in Michigan and college in Texas. After earning a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Texas-Austin, I worked as a newspaper reporter. I finished my Master of Library & Information Science degree from San José State University in December 2010. I'm also a part-time faculty librarian at San José State University.

I love local, regional and library history, and, of course, reading.
