About Me

232094 Library Staff Head Shots-rev

I believe in the power that information, technology, and education provides to people to bring about positive change in the world.

I’ve been working in academic libraries for more than 25 years. I’ve also work elsewhere on campus through adjunct teaching and a few times I’ve gotten to travel to amazing places with students.

I followed my passion for helping others succeed in their jobs by earning a Masters of Science in Education for Adult Education / Human Resource Development in 2016. That’s a degree that focuses on performance of people and organizations. I learned a lot about instructional design and learning theories, management and organizational design, needs assessment and program evaluation. Quite a few years earlier (22 years earlier, in fact) I earned my Masters of Library Science from the University of Alabama. I am certified for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Appreciative Inquiry, and my career focus is on helping others and organizations to learn new ways to be successful.
