I’m an Outreach Librarian for Education and Philosophy at the University of Rochester who is passionate about Open Educational Resources, digital scholarship, accessibility, and working with local high school students, teachers and librarians. I’m a work-in-progress with respect to issues around equity, inclusion and privilege. My pronouns are she/her/hers.

Why Batgirl? Our Outreach librarians all have super-hero cards to remind everyone both that we’re here to help, and we don’t take ourselves *too* seriously. And, Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) was a librarian!
