Haven gone through the ranks, through hard work and dedication with awards of Masters degree in Library and Information Science (MLS), her designation was changed from Senior Library Officer to Assistant Librarian on 18th December 2014.

On completion of that study she was awarded Doctor of Philosophy: Library and Information Science Archives, records management, she was transferred to the department of Library and Information Science in 2019 to fill the gap and contribute her ideas and knowledge skills in the development of the department, faculty and indeed the entire university.
