I am the Librarian for Southeast Asian Studies, Pacific Islands Studies, and Religion at the UCLA Library. I am currently organizing the National Diversity in Libraries Conference (NDLC ’16). I am a former President (2012-2013) of the Asian Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) and was one of the co-chairs of its 35th Anniversary & Symposium held in 2015.
Prior to joining UCLA, I was a Reference Librarian in the Humanities and Social Sciences Division (Main Reading Room) of the Library of Congress and a Chesapeake Information and Research Library Alliance (CIRLA) Fellow at the Smithsonian Institution Libraries. Before becoming a librarian, I worked in various capacities, mostly at nonprofit organizations that dealt with such topics as folklore and folklife, women’s health and reproductive rights, children’s health policies, and farmers markets and agricultural sustainability.
