In my role as Information Literacy Librarian at the University of Windsor I spend a great deal of time working with faculty and students to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum.  To this end, I teach many sessions on research and library resources throughout the disciplines, helping students understand how to find, evaluate and use information effectively and ethically.

I hold an instructor position in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FAHSS), teaching Mentorship & Learning (GART/SOSC-4000). This course is part of the larger FAHSS Mentor program, which I coordinate.

I am also Program Coordinator of the University of Windsor's BA (Hons) Aeronautics Leadership Program. The degree provides students with a unique opportunity to combine a Liberal Arts and Leadership-focused education with commercial flight training.
