Katelyn is an instruction librarian, sometimes archivist, podcast & audiobook enthusiast, and slow-but-steady crocheter.
Katelyn started her career as an archivist, but found herself drawn towards working directly with students in the classroom. As an instructor, she is guided by critical pedagogy and Universal Design for Learning. She is also passionate about making sure the library meets students where they are by creating effective online tools, using authentic assessment, and providing campus outreach.
Outside of her daily work, Katelyn hopes to make a positive improvement in the accessibility and inclusiveness of librarianship. She is currently in the midst of a research project studying the experiences of academic librarians with invisible disabilities. She plans to use this and future research to address the inequality within librarianship and advocate for fellow librarians with disabilities.
