Prior to her current role at ASU Library she was the Specialist with the Community-Driven Archives Initiative (CDA) at ASU Library. She obtained her Masters in Library and Information Science (MLIS) from The University of Arizona and is an alumna of Arizona State University. Her current work focuses on creating a robust community collection at ASU Library documenting the lived experiences of Black people living and thriving in the state of Arizona. Her work will focus on community relationship building and partnerships with the Black community of Arizona and sharing her archival knowledge with communities to preserve their history. By creating intergenerational and intersectional safe spaces to acknowledge historical trauma the Black collection at ASU Library will be a one-of-a-kind collection created and curated by the community at large.
