About Me

I have been working in librarianship and information services for 22 years, working in academia and the private sector. My background includes science and humanities librarianship, technology management and training, teaching writing and gender studies, and managing small businesses. My professional focus is on helping library patrons navigate the information systems and technologies that surround us, always remembering that the machines are here to serve humans and not the other way around.

At Arcadia I am Collections and Technical Services Librarian, and library liaison to the School of Global Business and the departments of Psychology and Sociology, Anthropology, & Criminal Justice.

In 2015 I started West Philly Press, publishing poetry and short prose, and well as offering editing and publishing services to writers and poets looking for alternative ways to bring their writing into print. I've helped publish six books, including two of my own work, and will be putting out two more in 2020.
