Kiara graduated with her Master’s in Library and Information Science from University of Missouri. Kiara has not wasted time getting connected to the health sciences library community. She is currently the Freshman Board Member of the ICON Library Consortium in Nebraska as well as a member of MLA and MCMLA. Kiara has six years working in the public library sector and maintains a Public Library Certification with the Nebraska Library Commission. While working at the Omaha Public Library, she built strong relationships with the community through a variety of engaging outreach programs. Kiara is a former member of the Health Occupation Student Association (HOSA), which we are egger to tap into so we can further introduce health information as a career path option with this group. For those of you who know Christian Minter at the McGoogan Library of Medicine, she was Kiara’s practicum site advisor on a variety of interesting projects. These included assisting the development of the library’s consumer health information collection, conducted research on staffing models used by the McGoogan Library to explore transitioning their library to 24/7 access, and expanded her expertise as a PubMed user. Kiara also spend a significant amount of time as a healthcare worker during her nine years as a dental assistant.
