I am a native of upstate NY living in the Washington DC metro area. I am Korean-adoptee in touch with and proud of her roots.  I am in contact with my biological family. 

I have a Bachelors of Arts in Communications, concentrating in Interpersonal & Intercultural Communications, from SUNY New Paltz. In addition, I hold a Masters in Library Science from the University of Maryland at College Park. I am a 2007 Spectrum Scholar and a 2010 Association of Research Libraries Career Enhancement Fellow.

I am currently a librarian at a federal law enforcement agency. My work focuses on chemistry and pharmacology research, reorganizing my library's intranet website, creating a taxonomy of acronyms and abbreviations, and Inter-Library Loan. I am active in the DC Chapter of the Special Library Association, and am a co-author for the Chapter Notes bimonthly newsletter in the "Career Column". In addition, I'm involved with the Federal Armed Forces Librarians Roundtable, New Members Roundtable of the American Library Association (ALA), and the ALA Diversity Committee's Research Grants Advisory Group.

I'm interested in health literacy to combat health disparities, mentoring, and diversity issues. I love college basketball, meeting new people, reading on my kindle, and eating.
