Hello, I’m Lisa. (she/her)*

A woman with short blonde hair smiling  while wearing a tan blazer outside.

I’m an educator, researcher, and librarian with a faculty appointment at a large land-grant research university.

As a cis-gendered white woman, I currently live and work as an uninvited but grateful guest on the traditional territory of the Potano and Seminole Peoples.

As an educator and researcher, I am committed to centering people with disabilities and marginalized identities in my work.

In my role as an instruction and outreach librarian, I strive to create inclusive library learning experiences that engage students and develop critical information and digital literacies. 

I am always learning and unlearning, and I hope to create that space for others. I am grateful for all of the teachers (including those who write about teaching) who’ve led me to a pedagogy of care.

“As a classroom community, our capacity to generate excitement is deeply affected by our interest in one another, in hearing one another’s voices, in recognizing one another’s presence.”

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
