Kristina Intinarelli, Academic Advisor and Coordinator of Graduate Affairs

Kristina Intinarelli joined the iSchool as academic advisor and coordinator of graduate affairs on December 19. In this position, she will provide academic advising and support to students in the MS in library and information science program as well as develop and facilitate programs, workshops, orientations, and other resources for graduate students.

Prior to joining the School, Intinarelli served as a student services advisor and coordinator for the Graduate School at Washington State University in Pullman. In this role, she acted as a point of contact for advisors, coordinators, and students regarding program-specific issues for the university's graduate programs, conferred graduate degrees, tracked student milestones for degree completion, approved student petitions, and oversaw the approval process for thesis/dissertation acceptance in ProQuest prior to publication. She holds a BA in English with a focus in American literature from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a certificate in teaching English to adults (CELTA) from the University of Cambridge in the UK. She is currently pursuing an MLIS degree from San Jose State University in California.

"I am excited to be able to work with MSLIS students to individualize their program experience and help them to craft roadmaps for future career goals," she said. "I am also looking forward to being able to participate in initiatives that will foster a sense of community engagement and collaboration for our students."

Outside of the office, Intinarelli co-owns an e-commerce rare bookstore with her partner, where they sell rare, first edition, and collectible books. Beyond that venture, she enjoys perusing antique shops, watching horror movies, reading, attending karaoke nights, and hanging out with her two dogs (Plato and Sir Francis Bacon).
