Bio

As a Research & Education Librarian, I am responsible for supporting the application of evidence based practice in the Duke University Medical Center; developing and teaching classes; applying web based technology to the delivery of services, participating in library strategic planning; providing leadership on special projects; and assisting patrons in locating accurate and timely information in support of quality clinical care, biomedical research, and health sciences education. I am happy to help you with your research, information management, or technology questions.

As the Library Liaison to the Duke Physician Assistant Program and to the Duke Pathologists' Assistants Program, I work closely with the faculty and students. I teach a variety of classes within their curriculums, provide research consultations, serve on the Physician Assistant Technology Committee, Physician Assistant Curriculum Committee and hold regular office hours.

Background

I received my Master’s in Library and Information Science in 2004. I've been at Duke since January 2006. Prior to coming to Duke, I worked with the North Carolina State University Libraries Systems department to migrate and convert the entire Library website and with the Special Collections Research Center on a grant project.  Before coming to NC, I worked in reference and administration in a public library in Illinois and as a literacy volunteer tutor.
