Colleen joins Principia with a background in education and a love for helping others. As the information literacy coordinator, she focuses on collaborating with faculty and working one-on-one with students to provide library instruction and research support. Colleen also manages Marshall Brooks Library's government documents collection.

I grew up watching my mother teach, and I learned early on that education is an expression of love. I believe we have an obligation to follow Jesus' command to love one another, and teaching is my way of loving others.
