MICA COORDINATOR FOR LGBTQ STUDENT INVOLVEMENT & COMMUNITY ADVOCACY!
Fiona Jardine is a PhD student at University of Maryland’s iSchool, having recently completed a Master of Library Science with a specialization in Information and Diverse Populations. As the Vice-President of iDiversity, she gets to work with amazing students on diversity projects related to information issues. Fiona is the Graduate Assistant Coordinator for LGBTQ Student Involvement and Advocacy in the Multicultural Involvement & Community Advocacy Office (MICA), a position that allows her to teach, support, and advocate for undergraduate LGBTQ and allied students. She is also a Graduate Writing Fellow, so provides one-on-one writing consultation for students in any graduate program.
Fiona’s background is in the law and is admitted to practice California and Maryland, but is planning to pursue a career that does not involve being an attorney after completing her PhD. She is originally from (the old) York in the north of England, but moved to America in 2008. She is a fairly decent knitter and seamstress, an ardent animal lover, counting bees, prairie dogs, and a free-roaming sulcata tortoise among her ever-growing animal menagerie, and lives up to the English stereotype of drinking lots of tea.
