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.
