SILSSA 2016-2017 Officers
President: Bianca Hezekiah
Vice-President: Libby Molina
I’m very happy to be vice president of SILSSA and to be entering my second year at Pratt. Last summer I moved to New York from San Francisco after having an epiphany: I could combine my lifelong love of books with my passion for teaching and become a school librarian! Over the course of the last school year, I worked as the librarian/tech assistant at P.S. 6, and this year I will be working at the Convent of the Sacred Heart, as the librarian assistant for the lower and middle schools.
My favorite things in life are books, art museums, traveling, living abroad, learning new languages, and riding my bike. I am also in love with Hello Kitty (I even own a toaster that toasts her face onto the bread – the day I discovered that feature was a joyous one indeed).
Treasurer: Kate Meizner
Hi! I’m Kate Meizner and I am a fourth semester SI student pursuing an M.S. in Data Analytics and Visualization. After finishing undergrad, I moved from Northampton, MA to Brooklyn, where I enjoy riding my bike, going to punk shows and watching the Mets occasionally win. At Pratt I’m especially interested in UX, researching open government data, and info viz.
Secretary: Sarah Hamerman
Hi, I’m Sarah, and I’m excited to be spending my third and final year of Pratt’s MSLIS/MS Art History program as your SILSSA secretary. I’m hoping to bundle my interests in cataloging, open access, and artists’ publications into a career in museum librarianship. This year, I’m working as a Project Cataloger for artists’ books at MoMA Library, and as a GA at Pratt’s Brooklyn Campus Library. I love collecting cassette tapes, dancing to house music, cooking with friends, and playing with my black cat, Burt.
