I received my Master's Degree in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin in 1998. Prior to that, I earned degrees from the University of Cape Town and the University of Wisconsin. Little known fact: I attended UW Oshkosh my freshman and sophomore years.
I started at Polk Library in 1998 after earning my Master's Degree. Prior to that, I worked at the Wisconsin Historical Society as a public records archivist. I am active in the Midwest Archives Conference, currently serving as the organization's elected secretary. I am the chair of the UW Systems Records Officer Council and the chair-elect of the UW System Archives Council.
I have served on the Academic Staff Development Committee and the Outstanding Service Award committee after receiving that honor in 2003. I serve as the agency records officer on campus and in that role counsel offices on the proper retention and disposal of public records.
I serve on the collections committee on the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh and the board of the Neenah Historical Society.
