Siggi Schroth joined the iSchool on April 4 as an office support specialist. She serves as the primary receptionist at the main building on 501 E. Daniel Street.
Prior to joining the iSchool, Schroth served as an office support associate at McKinley Health Center for three years. She holds associate degrees in American Sign Language interpretation and Deaf studies from John A. Logan College and a BS in speech and hearing science from the University of Illinois.
"I am looking forward to learning more about the iSchool's areas of study, especially equitable access to information and the preservation of knowledge," said Schroth. "I have a strong commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion."
In her free time, Schroth enjoys cooking food from around the world, gardening, and writing. She contributed a write-up of a hot pepper pickle recipe in The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Katz, a New York Times bestseller and winner of the James Beard Foundation Book Award for Reference and Scholarship.
"I hope I can be a friendly face to help the iSchool's awesome students, faculty, researchers, and staff connect with the resources they need to reach their goals," said Schroth.
