I have a Masters in Library & Information Science from the University of Iowa (1999), and prior to that a B.S. in Russian, East European, Eurasian Studies (1996).
I started at Polk Library in 2004 as the Head of Information Resources. Prior to coming to Oshkosh, I was the Collection Development Librarian at Central College in Pella, IA (2000-2004) and Public Services Librarian at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, IA (1999-2000).
On campus, I am currently the staff adviser for the student group Oshkosh Gaming Society, and was previously the staff adviser for the student groups Rainbow Alliance for H.O.P.E. and Students for a Fair Wisconsin.
In the community, I served for two years on the City of Oshkosh Sustainability Board, with one year as the Chair of that board.
