She continued her education at the University of Minnesota, graduating with a master’s degree in public health.
Prior to her appointment at the Bio-Medical Library, Hunt worked as a research coordinator at the the Epidemiology and Community Health Division of the University’s School of Public Health.
Hunt to advance researcher support
In her new role, Hunt will work to advance the researcher support mission of the Health Sciences Libraries, bringing her experience conducting health-related research along with her expertise in research data management. These skills will be a valuable asset as she contributes to data curation activities within the University Libraries and works in partnership with the Academic Health Center.
At the library, Hunt has hit the ground running, successfully integrating her public health background and expanding her new roles in library outreach, research and data services, and evidence-based practice.
In addition to her professional achievements, Hunt also shares her personal interests in yoga, cooking, and gardening, which enrich the library community and her daily work.
