About

HELLO, WORLD!

With a passion for all things book-related, environments with a community-first focus, and one--on--one project building, I have both the enthusiasm and professional background necessary to make a positive contribution to the LAM world, with a world--class education to match. As a multi--faceted multitasker with excellent management skills built from a range of industries, I envision an exciting future at the frontier of information literacy and community reference work.

Browse my site to learn more about me, read my portfolio of projects in the LIS field, and see what skills I can lend to your next project. I look forward to working with you soon!
