Professional Biography

I am a Library Assistant on the Teaching and Learning Team. I support all disciplines and have expertise in Health and Medicine. My work involves providing research and knowledge synthesis consultations for students and faculty, and assisting with library instruction sessions.  I have specialized knowledge in systematic review methodology, and the research and publishing process.  Before coming to Western Libraries, I previously worked as a librarian at London Health Sciences Centre, the Hospital for Sick Children, and Woodstock General Hospital.

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that any moment can be an opportunity to learn. I embrace diversity, inclusion, and accessibility, and strive to create collaborative environments that suit an individual learner's needs. Learning is lifelong.  I recognize that the relationship between myself and learners can be reciprocal and ongoing.
