What I do...

I am the Data Services Coordinator and an Associate Professor at James Madison University (JMU) in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Prior to this position, I was the Physical & Life Sciences librarian at JMU. I seek to enhance the knowledge and awareness of data information literacy on campus, which includes the discovery, management, and curation of data, as well as instruction in the methodologies for such.

My research interests are in data management education, changes in scholarly communication, and data curation. I have been heavily involved in data management education efforts within ACRL. In all things, I believe that social justice is the foundation of active librarianship.

The "Experience" link will take you to my C.V. where you can review my professional and academic achievements, including service to the profession. The "Scholarship" link details my presentations and publications, while the "Conservation Work" link showcases the work that I did while at the University of Illinois' Library Conservation Lab (just for fun!).
