Katelyn is an instruction librarian, disability advocate, 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.
Outside of her regular duties, Katelyn works to improve the accessibility and inclusiveness of librarianship. Her research focuses on the experience of library workers with non-apparent disabilities and accessibility within the field more broadly. She speaks to libraries and professional organizations about the reality of disability outside of cultural stereotypes, barriers to accessibility within libraries, and incorporating disability inclusion throughout equity efforts.
